In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, organizations must drive operational excellence, foster innovation, and optimize costs. Strategic utilization of cloud resources remains a critical enabler of this pursuit. Virtusa, in collaboration with Google Cloud, has developed a robust cloud economics value framework that empowers enterprises to unlock hidden opportunities for greater return on investment (ROI) across the cloud continuum.

Optimizing business value across the cloud continuum

Virtusa's continuous cloud optimization strategy is supported by our premier status with leading cloud service providers, including Google Cloud, and it ensures that enterprises efficiently serve immediate needs while also contributing to sustainable growth initiatives. Cloud economics, which encompasses financial considerations, risk mitigation, and security, offers a holistic approach to extracting value from information technology (IT) investments.

Understanding cloud economics

Cloud economics explores the costs, benefits, and economic principles of cloud computing. Cloud economics best practices involve making wise financial decisions, optimizing costs, and maximizing value from available resources. With only 19.5% of IT practitioners at the leading edge of cloud maturity, businesses must gain a deep understanding of cloud economics to stay competitive and innovate.
