What is Finops?

FinOps is an operating model that brings financial accountability to variable spending in the cloud. Or, in layman's termas, a FinOps model can help you determine your spend in storage and operating systems.

You might consider FinOps as a bookkeeper for you organisation and individual projects. A FinOps will help you in the day-to-day management of your cloud-based resources, allocating the right space, time andmoney you need for a successful cloud architecture.

The tool will also help you operate at scale. As a cloud-based financial management tool, a FinOps is designed to evolve over time as your business grows.

How and where would you use FinOps?

FinOps systems have helped engineering, finance, technology, and business teams make data-driven decisions while maximising their cloud utilization and investment portfolios.
