May 24, 2016 – As if the complexity of Cloud services weren’t’ enough, we also have to face the associated “hidden costs”. In our previous post, we discussed the costs surrounding Resource Management. In today’s post, we’ll review three other less obvious (but still major) causes of that conversation, and talk about the best way to mitigate them.
Environment Management Costs – Aside from managing the virtual resources, managing a cloud environment still requires architectural, integration, and administration decisions. If you don’t have the skill set to perform those tasks and make those decisions, you can often see astronomical costs for “fixing” what was put in place. Examples include:
Cost Management Costs – It may seem silly to mention “cost management” as a potential cause of getting slammed with “hidden costs”, but the truth is there are important considerations outside of the basic unit price of a CSP:
CSP Management Costs – These hidden costs are less about specific costs from the CSP and more about costs you can incur if you don’t manage your CSP selection correctly. CSPs all have different service levels for support, reliability, and security that can cost you money on the business side.
Ultimately, with a little due diligence, the right planning, and appropriate staff skillsets, these four categories of “Hidden Costs” are entirely avoidable. Unfortunately, many folks don’t have the time or people for these activities on hand, and have limited budgets to spend the money finding them. As a result, KPS has created a service offering that will ensure you will never need to worry about these issues, and more importantly ensure you never again have to have the talk with your finance folks. You can have your cloud cake and eat it too!
