Cloud sprawl is a BIG challenge. Large companies use 730 individual cloud services – a number which has grown a staggering 21% in just six months. If you don’t know by now what your organization is using, you need to!
At Cisco Live US 2015, Haley Gallant of the Cisco Cloud Consumption practice did a masterful job demonstrating all the features of our Cloud Consumption software.
In just three minutes, you can learn how Cloud Consumption Services can help you discover and monitor your cloud service usage, identify cloud usage anomalies, and understand the risks of cloud.
Take a look and learn more about how Cloud Consumption can help you manage cloud sprawl!
