Purpose

The purpose of this project is to provide the possibility for our business owners and system owners to have a clear understanding and overview of cost for public cloud services as well as key metrics that will make them able to make decisions based on facts.

 

Project description

Why is this important? This adoption of cloud computing in Demant introduces several new challenges but managing cloud spending is proving to be one of the most difficult. When Demant is using public cloud IaaS and PaaS services, we are billed continuously as consumption occurs. Also called “pay as you go”. This is different from one-off investments (CAPEX) as it happens when we procure our data centre capacity. Another challenge is the ability to provide extremely busy business and system owners with only relevant key metrics that enables them to make fast decisions based on facts. We want to help decision makers with easy access to fact-based data through online and fully automated reporting.

We see the project starting with interviews with key stakeholders and data collection as a preparation to data and input consolidation from stakeholders. A presentation of findings and conclusions along with a solution proposal would need to be presented to IT decision makers. When a decision is made the solution will need to be developed and implemented.

 

Resources available

The Director of the Cloud Center of Excellence will be the project sponsor and will help with arranging interviews with key stakeholders as well as access to required systems.

 

Motivation

Demant is a company with 18.000+ employees worldwide and is growing year by year. Our Global IT organization is 500+ employees providing IT servicesfor all business areas in Demant. This project will give the candidate a unique opportunity to work in an enterprise scaled IT organization and the opportunity to talk to key stakeholders around the organization. This project could significantly increase our enterprise transparency for cloud services and help business areas in better decision-making.
