This white paper from Google aims to address overspending by providing guidance on how financial governance controls, such as usage quotas, budget alerts, and organizational policies, can help keep cloud costs and usage in check. In addition, the white paper shares key findings from a recent Google study of 250 enterprise professionals across IT and finance. In this study, a majority (61%) of professionals cited lack of predictability as their single greatest cloud cost management pain point. Other notable insights include IT and finance’s role in managing IT costs, where their roles overlap, and which tasks are most important when executing successful IT cost management processes.
