Cloudar and Oblivion Launch the FinOps Alliance

by Thomas Wijntjes on 04 February 2022

Two AWS Premier Consulting Partners in the Benelux join forces to launch this endeavor. Together, the Belgian Cloudar and Dutch Oblivion introduce the FinOps Alliance. This initiative strives to create, share, and curate knowledge related to a new stream in tech: FinOps (Cloud Financial Management).


Cloud Financial Management

Cloud Financial Management or FinOps (Financial Operations) in the tech world, concerns all activities related to cloud efficiency and value, including budgeting, reporting, forecasting and cost optimization. With the rise in cloud adoption worldwide, more and more organizations are expanding their cloud footprint and with that, their related expenses. This happens more often than not in a disproportionate manner, as costs and productivity are not always in balance.

Cloudar and Oblivion both have extensive experience with helping their customers become aware of this issue and successfully adopting pragmatic FinOps solutions. Now, both companies announce this collaboration aiming to bridge the gap between theory and practice: the FinOps Alliance. The FinOps Alliance aims to operate based on the following mission statement: building a library of functional approaches from real-life experience to the FinOps Community. By creating more awareness on the financial side of cloud, these consulting partners help companies discover inefficiencies in their cloud environment and combat the rampant waste in cloud computing.

Open access

The knowledge shared on the FinOps Alliance is freely accessible to all cloud enthusiasts that want to participate in the discussion of cloud financial management on our website.
