The Public Cloud Buying Challenge

IaaS Spending Sprawl

Due to strict contract language and over-commitment on capacity, organizations are getting locked into
ever-increasing annual public cloud spends with little flexibility in scaling down to the appropriate
consumption levels. Public cloud providers use their incumbency to drive new sales, even within
organizations that may not need additional cloud solutions.
