A press release from our diamond sponsor Apptio

Deutsche Börse, an international exchange organisation and innovative market infrastructure provider, is among the pioneers in hybrid multi-cloud use in the highly regulated Financial Services Industry. One of their core cloud management disciplines is FinOps. With a real-time cost transparency from FinOps, the company can use budgets in the best possible way for fostering innovation.

Christian Tüffers, Senior Cloud Architect at Deutsche Börse; will give exclusive insights in how the company effectively manages and forecasts cloud costs with FinOps.

The presentation will take place September 28, 13:35-14:25, in room Apptio (4). See the agenda at:

Just as DevOps has revolutionized software development by breaking down silos and increasing flexibility, FinOps uses best practices and technical methodologies to create cloud cost transparency as well as support efficient and agile decision-making and reporting processes among IT, finance, and business management. As a proven discipline for cloud cost management, FinOps increases the business value of the cloud and solves the two key cloud challenges: complex pricing and cloud-services data.


Effectively manage dynamic cloud costs with FinOps

Join Christian Tüffers, Senior Cloud Architect at Deutsche Börse, to learn about strategic advantages of hybrid multi-cloud and FinOps, how dynamic cloud costs can be managed effectively, and how FinOps can be used optimally to further drive innovation.

He will demonstrate FinOps best practices – supported by the tool Apptio Cloudability – that help Deutsche Börse bring financial responsibility for cloud spend to relevant teams, giving them visibility and the ability to optimize their cloud usage as needed.

Real-time cost visibility and free resources to innovate

With the capabilities of Apptio, Deutsche Börse gets real-time cost visibility, anomaly alerts, rightsizing recommendations, and accurate forecasting – while still having enough available resources for innovation. This enables them to position cloud as a value driver.

In this presentation, Tüffers will also share more about Deutsche Börse’s cloud center of excellence’s responsibilities for processes and cloud adoption.

Apptio brings FinOps to life

Mallory Beaudreau, Customer Portfolio Manager for Apptio Cloudability, will highlight how the Apptio platform brings FinOps to life as an essential success factor for cloud environments and migration efforts – from central dashboards for teams to drill-downs to explore cost drivers and manage cost allocation up to forecasts and budget planning.
