About FinOps Accelerate

FinOps is a cultural practice of managing cloud costs cross-functionally, to optimize Cloud spends in the most effective manner.

Over 51% of users on Cloud end up overspending. FinOps allows users to monitor and tweak their Cloud spends, resource allocations, and more to reduce this misspend.

With FinOps Accelerate, a virtual conference by CloudKeeper, we aimed to take the lead in educating organizations on their Cloud spend and enabling them to take sharp decisions in deploying their Cloud infrastructure wisely.

What to Expect

FinOps Accelerate is not just another Cloud conference. It is a continuous endeavor to raise awareness about
the need and urgency for Cloud cost optimization. We give leading FinOps practitioners a center stage, to
impart their best practices and industry knowledge to everyone.
