Leah Schneider leads the Commercial Operations and Strategy Team (COST) dedicated to AWS customers in the Financial Services industry. Leah is focused on helping customers empower their organizations by optimizing their architectures from both a cost and workload perspective, building self-serve optimization tooling, establishing a lean cost culture, and driving better governance through cost transparency.
The need to closely monitor and control costs is a constant for the Financial Services industry, and currently there is more pressure to optimize spending. In this webinar, our Commercial Operations and Strategy Team (COST) will share five approaches that leading financial institutions are taking to manage their cloud spend. Webinar attendees will learn how to harness AWS tools and services to align the interests of finance, engineering, and procurement professionals and set a path for long-term, sustainable cloud adoption while realizing short-term efficiencies. Topics we will cover include: elasticity (automating start/stops for non-production workloads); right-sizing storage with intelligent tiering; pricing models to pay less for more compute power; guardrails and alerts to set limitations across teams; and forecasting to avoid surprises. We’ll share real-life success stories of customers who have used these approaches to optimize their AWS spending, and also provide an overview of the resources available to help financial institutions create a strategy for cloud cost management.
