Our client, a large international apparel company, sought to gain insights into cloud spends, identify security red flags, and enhance visibility into performance metrics.

Infosys implemented Cloud FinOps workbench enabling the client to identify cloud spend across each line of business (LOB), cost centers, applications, and business owners. Additionally, cloud optimization recommendations were provided without the need to log into the cloud service provider (CSP) console.
