Certero for Cloud

Extend your capabilities and start to manage the four main challenges for SaaS and Cloud: Bill Shock, Cloud Sprawl, Toxic Consumption and Shadow IT.

Track your increasing SaaS & Cloud spend where it counts most

Certero for Cloud is a series of thirteen stand-alone modules that can be used individually or in any combination, to manage the four main business challenges surrounding SaaS & Cloud:

Cloud Sprawl – Uncontrolled proliferation of an organization’s cloud instances, services or providers.
Shadow IT – Uncontrolled Cloud resources and SaaS subscriptions that exist without organisational approval.
Bill Shock – The financial impact of unexpected changing costs.
Toxic Consumption – When required resources are purchased but then not managed efficiently.

Cloud IaaS / PaaS

Certero for Cloud currently has two modules to manage the major Cloud IaaS / PaaS vendors in Azure and AWS (with Google also coming soon). These modules ensure that the six disciplines of Cloud Asset Management are covered:

  • Cloud Discovery – What IaaS / PaaS is out there? Is everything known to the business?
  • Cloud Inventory – What exactly is it? how important is it? how does it need to be managed?
  • Cloud Usage – What resources are being used, how much, by whom and what for?
  • Optimization – Performance and Capacity planning, identification and eradication of wasted assets.
  • Bring Your Own Licence (BYOL) – The ability to use licences you’ve purchased, in the Cloud.
  • Financial Management – The ongoing cycle of Identifying – Understanding – Managing – Optimising costs.

Managing & Optimising SaaS

While the number of SaaS apps in use across the business is growing, most organizations will invest the vast majority of their SaaS spend in a handful of apps and suites like Office 365, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Slack, Okta, G-Suite and Adobe Creative Cloud.

That’s why Certero for Cloud’s eleven major SaaS vendor modules are optimized to focus your priorities on where the most substantial savings can be made.
