About this event

Welcome to the inaugural meeting of the FinOps Foundation's New York group! Stop by and (digitally) meet some neighbors who are actively working to save money in the cloud, or hope to be soon. What is FinOps, you ask? From the FinOps.org website: FinOps is the operating model for the cloud, which is resulting in a shift that combines systems, best practices and culture to increase an organization’s ability to understand cloud costs and make informed business decisions. FinOps increases the business value of cloud by bringing together technology, business and finance professionals with a new set of practices and standards around cloud financial management.
