As chief cloud economist at The Duckbill Group, Corey Quinn spends his days helping businesses understand and lasso public-cloud costs.

In this episode, we sit down to talk about how telcos can control public cloud spending.

  • how to analyze and predict spending and ensure you’re not leaving money on the table [2:49].
  • We also take a look at how balancing the needs of technology and finance teams can help with cloud optimization [5:07]
  • and explore why it’s critical to architect for cost visibility and optimization from the beginning [7:45].
  • We wrap up with an opinionated conversation about why a multi-cloud approach is a losing proposition [9:15].
