Understand, control and allow multi-disciplinary teams to collaborate effectively
As experts in sophisticated cloud procurement, we offer unique value added cloud resale. As one component of that, our Clarity & Transparency suite of services translates cloud usage data into insight. We understand that the potential cloud promises will only be realised with close collaboration between technical and financial teams.
Our tools empower financial and technical teams with the information needed to communicate effectively by providing a point of common reference in the language each team understands.
Insight that helps you ask the right questions and then find the right answers
- Simplified cloud billing
- Unified billing consistent across providers
- Backing sheets providing context to understand invoices (highlight trends and changes)
- Customisable chargeback and showback
- Dashboards of current and historical usage
- Information tailored to finance or technical users (with drill down to the underlying data)
Realise unique flexibility and savings through collective buying power
Strategic Blue uses cloud vendor pricing models and resale programs to deliver unique flexibility and savings not possible when purchasing individually. By aggregating consumption into a single portfolio we create direct flexibility and savings benefits to our customers and partners. It also makes it possible to offer many of our services on a free of charge, value add basis
As this saving potential is only possible through the collective we share the benefits with the collective. This enables us to offer like for like pricing on resources where pre-paid commitments can be made that is superior to purchasing direct from the cloud vendor. It also means many of our other services can be provided without any management fee.
The portfolio effect allows us to buy on cloud vendor terms and sell on terms to suit our customers. These terms can vary on payment profile or, most uniquely, duration. Rather than the standard 1 or 3 year terms we offer commitments and savings on terms from 3 to 36 months and literally everything between to minimise the proportion of spend at the premium On-Demand rates in even the most obscure business objective or use case.
