AWS Cost Optimisation Services & Budgeting

Through a variety of optimisation techniques, Digital Dimensions will significantly reduce your AWS costs

The organic, large scale adoption of AWS services leads to inefficiencies which can drive up costs and, if left unchecked, see your hosting budget quickly spiral out of control.

As organisations shift infrastructure to the cloud, they unlock the ability to dynamically create infrastructure resources. While this offers many advantages and will speed up the delivery pace of projects, it can also lead to spiralling AWS cloud costs which quickly get out of control if not managed effectively. This is where a AWS cost optimisation service could help.

“Digital Dimensions are confident that through the applied use of AWS cost optimisation techniques, we can make double digit run cost savings year on year.” – Neil Butler, Digital Dimensions

Our team have been showcased for their expertise and innovation in this area by numerous organisations including AWS and the UK’s Government Digital Service (GDS). Through smart AWS budgeting, cost reduction is possible.

Using a variety of AWS cost optimisation techniques, Digital Dimensions will significantly reduce your AWS infrastructure costs.

Using the Digital Dimensions AWS cost efficiency scale, we will highlight both your current level of efficiency along with the potential future savings

AWS Cost Optimisation Assessment

Digital Dimensions will review your AWS Cloud Infrastructure against a set of cost optimisation techniques, producing a report which details prioritised recommendations (with associated AWS cost reduction and savings) to reduce your monthly spend and help with AWS budgeting.

Digital Dimensions then work with you to implement those recommendations and also to put AWS cost optimisation standards in place. This enables your teams to consistently build and test for cost optimal AWS infrastructure.

Training to Reduce your AWS Cost

We often find project teams are driven by tough delivery deadlines, as a result they aren’t able to spend time optimising AWS infrastructure costs.

We can train your engineers in cost optimisation techniques and AWS budgeting, implementing a clear decision process and standards to help them choose the most cost-effective combination to use each time a new service is built, helping optimise AWS costs without slowing down delivery.

Reporting on AWS Cost Reduction

Digital Dimensions can add organisation specific meta data enabling AWS billing data to be broken down by teams and environments (or other categories that have meaning to your organisation).

The end result is regular reporting which allows you to drill into your monthly AWS costs, quickly identifying both positive and negative trends in spend, comparing teams and allocating costs to different business units. This can help you make AWS budgeting decisions in the future.

We offer consolidated, centralised management of AWS costs across your organisation. If you want to reduce AWS costs, Digital Dimensions can help.

How can using our platform help with AWS budgeting?

Digital Dimensions offer AWS Platform as a service. By using a single, self-service platform across multiple teams, AWS costs can be reduced. Without this integration, true AWS costs are never fully known as they’re buried within departmental budgets. It’s easier to control AWS budgeting on a single platform.

We have continually evolved our platform to take advantage of new services to speed up delivery, while reducing AWS cost. Dashboards and reports show project team AWS costs broken down by team and environment, while tenants can see the impact of their spend and how efficient they are compared to others.
