Ep 4 – Lift Off: Right-size your public cloud spending

As chief cloud economist at The Duckbill Group, Corey Quinn spends his days helping businesses understand and lasso public-cloud costs. In this episode, we sit down to talk about how telcos can control public cloud spending.

Listen in to learn how to analyze and predict spending and ensure you’re not leaving money on the table [2:49]. We also take a look at how balancing the needs of technology and finance teams can help with cloud optimization [5:07] and explore why it’s critical to architect for cost visibility and optimization from the beginning [7:45]. We wrap up with an opinionated conversation about why a multi-cloud approach is a losing proposition [9:15].

This is the third episode in the three-part series, Liftoff. Check out the first and second installments.
