Apptio, the market-leading provider of Technology Business Management applications, has extended its use of AWS across its product portfolio and entered into a strategic relationship with AWS focusing on increased marketing and go-to-market strategies.
AWS across Apptio’s product portfolio
Apptio selected AWS as its preferred Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to runs its workloads by using its Hybrid Business Management solution to understand its cloud spending patterns and evaluate the benefits of all CSPs.
Apptio’s expanded use of AWS allows the company to decrease operational burden, improve the speed of deployment, expand into new regions, and more rapidly deliver product innovation to its customers. Apptio used its software to drive a migration decision for the business, and their customers will reap the benefits.
“This expanded relationship will allow Apptio to scale and handle extraordinarily large volumes of cost and usage data with the utmost confidence that customer data is safe and secure,” said Scott Chancellor, Chief Product & Technology Officer at Apptio. “We look forward to continuing our use of AWS to further accelerate our innovation velocity and deliver exciting new products that will dramatically improve our customers’ IT spend analysis, planning, and optimization workflows.”
Apptio will leverage AWS’s extensive catalog of services to provide customers with a superior experience. Including:
- Apptio Cost Transparency will leverage Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to continue to scale as it ingests and normalizes ever-growing IT spending data to deliver analytics and alerts to users that highlight opportunities for cost savings, increased productivity, and risk reduction.
- Apptio IT Planning and Agile Investment Management will further expand the use of AWS across Amazon EC2, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon DynamoDB to accelerate the IT planning, budgeting, and forecasting processes of Apptio customers.
- Apptio Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management will increase the use of Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, and analytics and machine learning (ML) services such as Amazon Athena, Amazon Elasticsearch Service, and Amazon SageMaker to provide enhanced cloud cost management, migration, and optimization solutions to customers.
AWS will be instrumental as Apptio continues blistering growth across its product portfolio and customer base, allowing its customers to better analyze, optimize, and plan for technology spending across the entire IT portfolio.
“As a customer of Apptio, I see a lot of value in the collaboration with AWS,” said Jason Fuller, Head of Cloud Management and Operations at HERE Technologies. “The deployment of Apptio’s solutions has enabled our IT organization to accurately analyze technology spend across various business units. With the power of AWS now backing these solutions, we’ll be able to analyze deeper and more broadly across datacenter and cloud suppliers. In the cloud, cost avoidance enables us to immediately pivot our investments to meet the priority of our business and drive continued business growth.”
AWS and Apptio: a strategic relationship
Apptio and AWS will go-to-market with Apptio Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management, two of the industry’s most powerful cloud cost management and migration solutions. Apptio Cloudability applies ML to cloud resources and associated financial and operational data, regardless of provider, to simplify complex bills, increasing data quality and accessibility while also delivering powerful insights that optimize spending and save money. Hybrid Business Management gives IT leaders a single pane of glass to understand, manage, and optimize multi-cloud and on-premises infrastructure spend and accelerate cloud migration. AWS customers will now be able to purchase Apptio Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management directly through the AWS Marketplace.
“We’re thrilled to grow our relationship with Apptio to help them deliver their proven capabilities to our customers,” said Doug Yeum, Head of Worldwide Channels and Alliances, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Apptio’s Hybrid Business Management application can allow our customers to accelerate their migrations to AWS by doing apples-to-apples comparisons while also managing and optimizing their AWS spend.”
“We’re excited to deepen our relationship with AWS today because it will help us further support our customers as they navigate the cloud migration process, one of the most consequential decisions for a CIO.”
