Your feedback is highly appreciated

Early adopters explored lot of patterns and also identified best practices for the cloud management. Most successful organizations in this space are tracking their progress at every step using well defined KPIs.

KPIs of 3 Key areas that MUST be on everyone’s dashboard:

  1. Cloud Optimization (& Automation)
  2. Business Integration
  3. Cloud Visibility

In this episode we will cover some of the most successful KPIs to measure Cloud optimization and Automation. These KPIs must be there on everyone’s dashboard to fuel productive in their cloud implementation program.

Let’s dive deep in KPIs to measure Cloud Optimization (& Automation)

What is optimization and operational excellence ?

In my experience optimization is the process of finding opportunities to achieve operational excellence by becoming more efficient and by reducing spend (both in dollar value & time). And operational excellence involves finding opportunities to be faster and more efficient at day-to-day tasks, in-short Automation is the Key.

So here are the KPIs to measure Cloud optimization (& Automation):

  • On-Demand Vs Reserved Infrastructure

Quantifying Percentage of infrastructure running on-demand vs reserved.

  • Incremental Rightsized savings

Monitoring monthly progress on rightsized savings. Yes, it involves continually analyzing instance performance and usage needs and tuning instance at the right size. But a very critical KPI to drive operational excellence.

  • Time to Deploy

Continuously collecting deployment time of every application and then flagging applications that have deployment time more than a certain threshold. This KPI will certainly helps in prioritizing applications that need immediate attention.

  • Production incidents by application

A transparent & real time visibility into production incidents at application level is again a critical KPI to drive operational excellence.
