HARMAN scales cloud operations
Since implementing a Cloud Center of Excellence and increasing cloud usage across the organization by 2,400x, the team at HARMAN recognized they needed a cloud management solution to continue to scale and optimize operations.
HARMAN leverages leading cloud providers AWS and Azure, but their native tools weren’t able to provide a holistic, centralized view into their multicloud environment. They looked to CloudHealth for an intuitive solution to unite their cloud footprint and provide the visibility, dashboards, and granular data the team needed—across governance, security, cost, and automation.

HARMAN quickly got up and running with CloudHealth and started to see the value right away, achieving 100% visibility into their cloud costs (having 10% visibility prior).
Additionally, HARMAN implemented a strategy of “self-service optimization,” where project owners can use CloudHealth to build customized dashboards without having to go to IT or open a service request. This empowers teams to quickly identify optimization opportunities and take action.
Altogether, with a 360-degree view into their cloud environment, along with CloudHealth’s rightsizing recommendations and other optimization features, HARMAN saves around $135K a month, which adds up to more than $1M a year.
In CloudHealth’s cloud management maturity model, HARMAN has quickly conquered the visibility and optimization phases. Moving forward, CloudHealth will continue to partner with HARMAN as they apply automation capabilities and integrate with business processes.
