Shamrock Consulting Group: Creating a More Efficient Way to Manage Costs in the Cloud
As one of the early advocates for the cloud, Shamrock Consulting Group has a vast amount of resources that they use to help their clients with successful cloud migrations, with the latest addition being their new, “Cloud Cost” platform. The amazing software can be put to use by sales personnel, CIOs, IT leaders, or anyone interested in understanding the cost and budgeting of cloud computing services. “Nobody has a comparison tool; it does not exist. Our platform will be the first tool of its kind available in the marketplace,” says Ben Ferguson, VP and Senior Network Architect at Shamrock. Since no software exists, the engineers at the company, along with Ferguson, have been working day in, day out over the past year to understand optimal Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and qualitative comparison strategies that they can deploy through their solution to simplify complex business decisions.
Microservices, together with container technology, are the most leveraged operations in the cloud, and it is within these areas are where Shamrock Consulting Group provides maximum value to clients via their Cloud Cost tool. One special feature of Shamrock Cloud Cost will be the comparative figures that it returns to users based on the cost of deliverable microservices from various cloud computing platforms across the globe.
The team at Shamrock Consulting Group strongly believes they have made a significant breakthrough by keeping their upcoming proprietary platform both simple and affordable. The onboarding will also be easy; Shamrock’s engineers are working on OAuth (use of Microsoft, Google or LinkedIn login credentials) to ensure users have a seamless login and user experience without having to create another dreaded user name and password. The insights customers will receive from Shamrock Cloud Cost will empower them to make accurate and informed financial decisions as they migrate to the cloud.“We hate the idea of wasted money,” concludes Ferguson, “Which is exactly why we love helping companies be resourceful and do more with less. Our goal is to make sure that we have the right tools and resources in place so that companies can do every thing more effectively and cost-efficiently.”
