FinOps Tools

A database is a structured data repository that is electronically stored and retrieved. While smaller databases can be stored on a file system, larger ones require computer clusters or cloud hosting to accommodate their size and complexity. MySQL,PostgreSQL, Informix, Sybase, and many more are some examples of the different kinds of databases that exist.

Key stakeholders and collaboration in FinOps for Data Clouds

When setting up FinOps for data clouds, the process is similar to traditional FinOps for infra clouds. Cross-functional collaboration between the tech team and finance team is essential for success. Usually, there are three types of key stakeholders: finance professionals, central data platform teams, and business vertical teams (Data cloud users), and each stakeholder has their own goals and priorities. The finance wants to achieve its budgeting and cost control goals without impeding the business goals delivered by the business vertical teams; The central data team needs budgeting, ownership, and support from finance and executive leadership to carry out cost reduction and control work; The business vertical teams, on the other hand, need to keep their costs under control while focusing on their core work.
