Effectively managing government funds, streamlining data centers, and maintaining regulatory compliance are common initiatives you face as an organization in the public sector. On top of that, you’re deciding which workloads to migrate, and whether you should have a hybrid cloud or public cloud strategy. In either case, the CloudHealth platform helps you deliver improved services to your constituents by driving cost savings and mitigating governance risks, regardless of whether you support a federal agency, state & local government, or a nonprofit organization.
IMPROVING CONTROL OVER COST, SECURITY, AND COMPLIANCE
"Making sense of the millions of rows of data tied to our cloud assets presented a complex challenge. The CloudHealth platform enables us to benefit from a holistic view, allowing us to easily manage our cloud environment."
—Bill Duncan, Director of EMS Technology Services, Amtrak
AMTRAK KEEPS CLOUD GOVERNANCE ON THE RIGHT TRACK WITH CLOUDHEALTH
“Moving business-critical applications to the cloud was an important move for us, given our focus on delivering system solutions in a timelier manner, while cutting costs,” said Bill Duncan, Director of EMS Technology Services at Amtrak. “Making sense of the millions of rows of data tied to our cloud assets presented a complex challenge. The CloudHealth platform enabled us to benefit from a holistic view, allowing us to easily manage our cloud environment.”
By leveraging the CloudHealth platform, Amtrak has been able to allocate virtually all of their assets, enabling them to charge back to the appropriate project. They are benefiting from a significant cost savings based on CloudHealth’s cost management and cost allocation reporting capabilities. Amtrak also relies on CloudHealth to ensure their business applications and training environments run smoothly in the cloud. The platform facilitates governance through policies tied to infrastructure management and provisioning. Amtrak’s success with CloudHealth has resulted in an increased level of confidence in their ability to effectively report on, manage and govern their cloud environment. Now, they are able to move forward with their initiative to migrate additional applications to the cloud.
U.S. CITY CONTROLS COSTS WITH CLOUDHEALTH
“My office needs to maintain control over costs while we leverage technology to modernize city operations,” said the Director of Infrastructure Services of a large city in the United States. With multiple programs and initiatives to digitize records and processes underway, the Director needed comprehensive cost, usage, and performance reporting to ensure that the cloud technology driving these programs was not exceeding the allocated budget. With CloudHealth reports and governance policies, the Director and his office are able to accurately report on costs and be alerted to cost irregularities within their cloud environment. As a result, the city can validate that they have the funds available to continue supporting programs and initiatives that serve their one million plus residents.
NONPROFIT GAINS VISIBILITY WITH CLOUDHEALTH
“I need visibility into cloud resource consumption by department across our entire cloud infrastructure, to determine the impact of cloud technology on each department’s daily operations,” said the Vice President of a National Association. The association is tasked with setting standards and supporting members across all fifty states, they turned to CloudHealth to see where they can reclaim time and money to better support their cause. Thanks to CloudHealth Perspectives, the organization is able to analyze costs and identify areas for infrastructure optimization, allowing the association to reallocate funds to support membership development programs.
