Ensono Selects CloudCheckr for AWS Cost and Inventory Management PortalNovember 29, 2017
Ensono, a leading hybrid IT services provider, selected CloudCheckr for the development of a new cost and inventory portal, providing Ensono clients robust cost optimization, inventory tracking and governance capabilities in the cloud.
"We are committed to bringing our clients the most trusted resources for their digital transformation journey, which is why we chose CloudCheckr for the Ensono cost and inventory portal," said Brett Moss, SVP and general manager, hyperscale cloud at Ensono. "CloudCheckr is a market leader, and their cost management portal met the requirements we were looking for in our service offering. With the additional insights, clients will gain a better understanding of what’s running on their IT infrastructure, enabling them to make smarter business decisions."
The cost and inventory portal, powered by CloudCheckr, provides Ensono clients with a higher level of transparency for better cloud cost management. Through the portal, clients can view historical and current spend reporting that can be analyzed by service, application, business unit, and project. The increased visibility enables improved financial governance with the ability to identify spending trends so organizations can reduce costs, as well as optimize billing, inventory, chargebacks and more.
Harte Hanks, an Ensono client, uses the new cost and inventory portal to tap into CloudCheckr’s custom reports and gain increased visibility into their day-to-day cloud operations.
"We rely on Ensono to run, operate, and optimize our AWS environment so we can focus our resources on our core business," said Russ Thackston, managing director of marketing technology services at Harte Hanks. "When Ensono introduced the cost portal, we saw immediate benefits. The additional insights have already helped us align costs with required performance and redundancy, facilitate governance controls, and gain a better understanding of what we’re running in AWS in real time."
Whether clients need to sort information by AWS region or a specific service, the portal allows them to customize AWS billing reports to best fit their needs. Clients can use standard reporting with summary dashboards that can be organized by service and include information on single or multiple AWS accounts. The portal also offers customized reporting capabilities based on project, department or any other tag and value that is defined for each service.
"Ensono stands out as a leading cloud service provider, with a singular commitment to delivering innovative, robust solutions to clients who want the right tools to benefit from advanced capabilities in the public cloud," said Jason Deck, CMO at CloudCheckr. "We are happy to support Ensono in offering deep insights and trend analysis to make sure their clients manage costs with confidence and use the public cloud to transform their businesses."
CloudCheckr’s cloud cost and inventory portal is fully integrated into Ensono’s Managed AWS service offering, allowing clients to easily use it.
