E49: How Do I Implement a Crawl, Walk, Run Approach to FinOps?
CRAWL, WALK, RUN! These may seem to be simple commands, but in FinOps, they mean a whole lot more than that. Once again Nick and Jason continue the discussion about FinOps and in today’s episode, our duo will break down how to implement a crawl, walk, run approach to FinOps and what that means in terms of a maturity model. In the crawl phase, it is important to understand the current status and set realistic goals, while the walk phase involves reporting to stakeholders and forecasting with accuracy. The run phase involves automating processes and detecting issues. Find out more in this latest episode of Cloud Cost Optimization. WORDS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR DAY JASON: CRAWL, WALK, RUN IN FINOPS “I think with most processes that are analogies that define themselves or align themselves with crawl, walk, run, it's just about understanding where the organization is today so that we can take the FinOps phases up the entire operating model and set realistic SMART goals based on where we are as an organization.” Get to know our hosts in the links below: Nick Lumsden: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nicklumsden/ Jason Yaeger: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jasonyaeger/ Wanna learn more about FinOps and Cloud Cost Optimization?

E48: What Are the Phases of the FinOps Journey?
WE’RE GOING THROUGH PHASES Following our theme of learning the fundamentals of FinOps, Nick and Jason are back to discuss its phases. Our duo defines and explains the ins and outs of the three phases of FinOPs, namely; Inform, Optimize, and Operate. Nick and Jason have already touched on this in past episodes, but today is where they get down to the details, so stay tuned to this latest episode of Cloud Cost Optimization. WORDS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR DAY JASON: PHASE 1 - INFORM “The first phase (Inform) is all about visibility into your cloud usage, cloud spend, and allocating that environment out in your context.” JASON: PHASE 2 - OPTIMIZE “The Optimize phase is, is the second phase and is more about identifying measuring optimizations, like right-sizing, underutilized resources, or maybe abandoned resources. We also like to think that it includes some level of configuration and misconfiguration management,” JASON: PHASE 3 - OPERATE “The Operate phase is implementing the processes to make sure that you're doing all of the things on a recurring basis and that you've changed the culture within the organization so that you're continually providing the visibility and allocation that you need.” Get to know our hosts in the links below: Nick Lumsden: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nicklumsden/ Jason Yaeger: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jasonyaeger/ Wanna learn more about FinOps and Cloud Cost Optimization?
