A leading global semiconductor manufacturer collaborated with Infosys to implement best practices across security, performance, and cost optimization. Leveraging cloud-native architecture and application refactoring, Infosys established a FinOps Center of Excellence (CoE) to drive success.

The FinOps CoE facilitated the analysis of underutilized resources and cost optimization with near real-time visibility to resource-level granularity. This streamlined decision-making across multiple stakeholders by providing a single-pane-of-glass view.

Key Challenges

  • Usage Breakdown and Inefficiency: The client faced challenges in understanding usage breakdowns and addressing inefficiencies in resource utilization.
  • Underutilized or Unused Resources: Identification and elimination of underutilized or unused resources posed a significant challenge.
  • Deviations in Cost & Consumption: Fluctuations in cost and consumption metrics required timely monitoring and intervention.

The Solution

Establishing Efficiency and Governance with FinOps CoE

Infosys assisted the client in analyzing and optimizing underutilized resources including both Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) resources. Additionally, unused or orphaned resources such as storage, public IPs, and NICs were identified and eliminated.

Long-term benefits like savings plans and reserved instance purchases were analyzed and implemented for cost optimization, leveraging Infosys Cobalt framework. Utilizing cost and data analytics with near real-time visibility, Infosys enabled proactive decision-making and optimization.
