Maven Group helps navigate the complexities for aligning invoiced costs appropriately among user groups by focusing on the consistent hierarchy for accounts, projects, subscriptions, and other logical groupings of resources. We also leverage the metadata associated with cloud services to build sustainable scalable cost allocation models.
Our design services for the transparent and accurate allocation of shared service cost enlists our experience and practical expertise to advise, not only on cost allocation models, but how the organization can best leverage a central budget structure to fund cloud services, development, and operations.
Maven Group helps our customers build predictive risk indicators to identify unexpected spending, identify and structure communication for anomaly alerts, and supports the investigation and resolution of anomalous usage and cost.
Leveraging customer data, along with metadata on cloud resources and resource hierarchies, we help to create a near “real time” reporting mechanism for stakeholders to monitor total costs for the desired Agency, Division or Program, opportunities for cost avoidance, and KPIs for financial health (e.g. performance of rate reduction commitments, unit cost measures for key services, aggregated efficiency metrics, etc.).
We design a combination of data representing historical spending with an evaluation of future plans, in the context of future cloud infrastructure and application lifecycle changes that may impact current budgets and influence budget planning and future cloud investment decisions.
Collaboration and communication between Operations, Budget, DevOps, and Executives inform the forecast models and key performance indicators.
Building a consistent data lake of usage, cost, performance and utilization data is a journey that Maven Group helps our customers make with confidence. We provide support to help ensure data has the appropriate standardization and normalization; identification of the right data sources; alignment with the cadence of decision making; and help determine the optimal level of granularity to support both aggregate reporting and detailed drill down investigation.
Maven Group uses the strategic objectives and program goals to help reveal the business value of the cloud investment as expressed on a per-unit basis. Our services include assessing the appropriate unit for measurement, in conjunction with the total allocable current and future cloud spend, to provide an investment perspective on resources committed to cloud based operations.
