Gartner reports that organizations without robust cloud governance and processes tend to overspend by nearly 40% each year. We believe them. Cloud pricing is an enormous challenge. With buying decisions that are no longer the sole purview of procurement and bills with millions of lines for subscriptions and services strewn across a dozen teams and departments, cloud pricing is a huge challenge. So what can we do about it?
