What the @&%!?
If you’re staring at your AWS bill wondering what’s going on and why you didn’t just become a platypus keeper, you should know that you’re not alone.
CFOs & Executives
We work for you–not AWS.
We don’t partner with any cost optimization vendors, we don’t help AWS close deals, and we’re not even AWS partners. We don’t receive a dime from anyone for recommending you do something. We work for you, not for a series of dubious “channel partners.”
You can’t gain business insight via API.
AWS Trusted Advisor (and many cloud costing vendors) are fantastic at analyzing savings improvements such as Reserved Instance purchase opportunities, resizing of over-spec’d instances to more cost-efficient sizes, and identifying idle EBS volumes. What they lack, however, is context about your business, and often give you little more than a list of changes to make that don’t reflect the reality of your organization’s infrastructure.
We don’t drop a report on your desk and walk out the door.
We offer more than an assessment of where you stand today: we give
you a concrete set of next steps and a plan for the future that
shows consideration for your goals and architecture.
We don’t want a percentage of your bill.
We only bill one way: fixed fee. If we don’t hit predetermined targets, we’ll give you a full refund. There’s no catch, no hidden partnerships, no recurring revenue model designed to charge you in perpetuity. We’re advisory in nature, and as such we don’t bill by the hour.
