What is Total Cost of Cloud Operations (TCCO)?

IT teams tend to look at cost management narrowly in the context of understanding and reducing their cloud resource bills. Cloud resource bills usually are only a fraction of their total cost of cloud operations. Working with customers such as St. Louis University and a large online pharmacy we learnt that the costs of managing basic operations such as enabling consistent self-service of compliant applications, driving granular security, compliance and governance were adding a lot more to their cloud costs. Total cost of cloud operations focuses on holistically driving down costs, including infrastructure bills, through efficient operations.

Why is a TCCO approach to CloudOps so effective?

The TCCO approach is effective because it focuses on intelligent automation in the applications and business context. In this approach central IT teams begin by enabling their users to deploy operations ready and compliant application environments on demand. This approach also empowers the application IT teams and citizen developers to make operating decisions. At the same time central IT is also able to have a continuous 360-degree visibility and deliver granular governance. Cloud took its roots in the enterprise through shadow IT and citizen developers that value time and flexibility. This approach embraces the entrepreneurial spirit while also enabling governance safeguards.

How can organizations plan a successful cloud strategy?

A cloud strategy is successful when organizations factor in everyday operations with an application and business centric view even as they plan their cloud migrations. This involves the following deliberate actions: 

  1. Ensure you have a current 360-degree view of all your cloud services and resources. Getting a cross-account, cross-region view enables you to drive consistency across your enterprise.  
  2. Organize your resources into the applications and business context. This ensures you can make effective decisions and bring in the right business and IT stakeholders.  
  3. Frequent security and compliance assessments relative to cloud best practices and industry standards can help ensure you identify vulnerabilities on time, define robust remediation policies and automate.   
  4. Get a view of resource costs at the application level. This will ensure that you are able to set appropriate guardrails. When spikes or increments happen, you are quickly able to identify the root causes to action. 
  5. Look for applications and usage patterns. This will not only help you right size, but also take advantage of cost saving purchasing programs such as enterprise agreements. 
  6. Automate, automate and automate. Constantly identify repeatable management patterns – such as patching, or frequently used infrastructure patterns to automate with guardrails and make them available on-demand.
