Cost and Asset Management

Digital Prodcut Design

As part of the IBM Multi-Cloud Management Platform, our team was tasked to build a product that would allow IT departments and finance teams to optimize their public and private cloud spend. The solution enables the user to automatically discover their costs and utilization, and build policy and analytics to optimize their infrastructure and application deployments. Simply put, you can ensure that you deliver high-quality services at the lowest possible price.
