FinOps: More than just cloud resources and tooling
Dev-Aware FinOps is a novel approach to both engineering cost optimization and reporting. In this talk we’ll introduce this emerging category that all engineering leaders should know and think about. We’ll show how modern tooling leverages data to understand investment in key projects and optimize developer team efficiency, without the unnecessary friction and toil.
The buzzword “FinOps” is tossed around a lot in modern engineering organizations, particularly in times like these when markets take a downturn, and every organizational penny needs to be justified. Too often, however, this focuses on engineering spend on developer tooling and cloud resources, and ignores the much more costly aspect of our engineering—our human time and resources.
