Transcript

Hello and welcome to this AWS Cost Management Course, focusing on KPIs.

I am Heinrich Marks and I’m a FinOps Consultant at kreuzwerker Frankfurt GmbH. My focus is on cost optimization in the AWS cloud and the practice of FinOps methodology at the enterprise level. In fact, we are the leading FinOps professionals in Germany and cover many other fields related to AWS and Cloud Development. 

But enough of that, let’s get started with the course!

In this course, we will learn about KPIs, how to use them correctly, and how to make the most of them in your individual use case.

This course is aimed to be beginner-friendly and therefore does not require special knowledge. However, It is advisable that you are at least familiar with the following topics. 

  • Cost optimization theory
  • Cloud- and finance-related terminology
  • Basic knowledge of AWS

The main objective of this course is to learn what KPIs are and how you can use them.

Costs in cloud environments can get complicated quickly. Therefore it is essential to provide transparency and responsibility to everyone in a business, and this is our main goal.

On a side note, I’d like to add that our feedback on our courses is valuable to both us as trainers and any students looking to take the same course in the future. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send an e-mail to support@cloudacademy.com.

At kreuzwerker, we focus on AWS, Software Engineering, and Cloud Financial Management. We've faced many cases with our customers where costs in the cloud got out of hand and lost touch with the actual business values.
