Vitado cloud optimization solution ready to tackle $26b over-spend

A fresh contender in the Cloud Asset Management space has just been announced, with the official launch of the Vitado by Certero’ solution for managing and optimizing multi-cloud costs. Focusing on the market leaders AWS and Azure to begin with and with Google Cloud Platform and more soon on the way, the new solution is aimed at helping businesses prevent some of the $26 Billion annual over-spending on cloud, as reported recently by Gartner analysts. This will enable customers to gain visibility, control governance, monitor utilization, take advantage of bring your own license (BYOL), manage costs and optimize value for money from the cloud.

Vitado by Certero is very much an intelligence solution, focused on the management and cost-optimization of cloud resources as business assets, rather than being another cloud operations tool. Businesses need a clear way to see, understand, manage and communicate expenditure in the cloud across business functions – not just cloud infrastructure engineers, but also those in financial and leadership roles need a solution they can also access to get the bigger picture and the bottom line – what are we spending, why, by who and what do we need to do to reduce wastage – it’s all there in Vitado, as CEO John Lunt explains:

“It’s all about connecting the dots and optimizing how technology can help to solve real-world challenges. With the growth and complexity of hybrid, multi-cloud environments, we see that as creating a means to really understand cloud assets and the new ways in which these assets are owned, managed and optimized right across businesses”.

That means not just needing a centralized, trusted information source to make informed decisions, but also a way of interacting with all of that information in a meaningful way to get next-level asset intelligence.

Accessibility here is the key – not just a solution for cloud specialists, but everyone who needs to understand cloud assets from a financial, business operations, risk and strategic leadership perspective – the non-technical stakeholders. Enterprise cloud management needs that collaborative understanding and communication so that accountability for costs can be properly managed, not just from within IT.

The logical approach to the cloud challenge is typical of Vitado’s parent company Certero, a leader in the hardware and software asset management space. It’s not enough to just pull-in data from cloud portals and paint some graphs – it’s how your solution automates complexities and transforms data into meaningful, actionable intelligence that will give you the edge.

With the announcement of Vitado by Certero, organizations can benefit from a single, unified multi-cloud solution that automates and proactively alerts stakeholders to issues so that they can avoid unexpected costs and governance risks before they become a problem.

Vitado also helps to bridge the gap between the on-prem and cloud worlds, with the solution being activated upon the broader Certero ITAM & SAM unified platform. No small advantage of which, is enabling an end-to-end solution for managing Bring Your Own License (BYOL) with Azure Hybrid Benefit (AHB).

The cost-savings with BYOL are simply staggering – as much as 85% when you take infrastructure into account as well” concludes Certero CEO John Lunt.

This unifying capability to span cloud vendors like AWS and Azure and bring your on-prem licensing into view as well all within a single console, is ahead of the game with cloud management solutions and opens up a new level of cost-reducing opportunity.

About Vitado by Certero

Certero are widely known for taking a refreshingly different, pragmatic and innovative approach to creating solutions that is loved by customers, as evidenced by Certero’s enviable position as the highest-rated major SAM vendor on Gartner’s ‘Peer Insights’ customer community.

Certero has a depth and wealth of experience and expertise from within their own consultancy and services divisions that feeds into the solution conception and design processes. This has led Certero to address and eliminate the technology challenges that slow-down, frustrate and de-rail users in practice – essentially eliminating the ‘legacy technical debt’ that plagues many asset management solutions. This may sound like background noise, but ultimately, it’s those old legacy technology issues that give rise to security risks and those annoying functional limitations that end up causing laborious manual processes outside of the tool – it’s then that you realize that the architecture and logic of these solutions really is what will either deliver failure or success. Certero’s attention and commitment to innovation is clear, and has led to having an enterprise-scope single platform for IT asset management that is highly secure, highly automated and in any configuration, simply works.

Last year, Certero pioneered the ‘Technology-Led Services concept – a way to deliver high-output, high-value services far more efficiently, thanks to the exclusive, cohesive harmony of Certero’s own consultancy teams maximizing Certero solutions in practice.

This practical approach and experience have also gone into Vitado, creating a solution that bridges the gaps between technical, financial and operational cloud stakeholders and unifies the understanding of cloud assets across the business. This supports accountability and opens up communication, as users easily create and share limitless dashboard-style reports that are backed up with detailed live data, accessed by simply drilling-down through the reporting UI.
