Cloud Asset Management

Cloud Asset Management (CAM) can help you control the rising threat of Shadow IT, Cloud Sprawl and Bill Shock across your SaaS, PaaS and IaaS applications

Ensuring your Cloud Asset Management strategy delivers power and control over your applications and expenditure

The advent of Cloud offers organizations many advantages and it is estimated over 80% of IT budgets are committed to Cloud applications and solutions. With such a high proportion of costs assigned to Cloud, it is essential that organizations are in full control.

The particular challenges of Cloud Asset Management (CAM) necessitate an alternative approach, quite distinct from that traditionally applied to manage on-premise licensing models. Trying to piggy-back a Cloud Asset Management solution on top of one specifically designed to manage on-premise licensing will not deliver the data and results needed to control and optimize your Cloud estate. The challenges of managing Cloud IT estates are very different to on-premise and need different solutions.
