This enables organisation’s to monitor and manage hosted services across a range of providers. Focused on helping users to build and manage successful cloud implementations.

Cloud Ctrl also lets users easily differentiate subscriptions, services, resources and their locations on the dashboard. Custom tagging allows for easy grouping and filtering in views.

We tackled the issues of visibility, a single dashboard for cloud service provider management and the ability to bill across teams or business units first as these were the biggest problems customers have today. Cloud Ctrl has a unique solution for billing and as well as providing a brokering service, customers can actually bring their own Enterprise Agreements, they do not have to purchase their cloud services via Cloud Ctrl, it is a true management platform.

Government Move to Cloud

There is no doubt that government is moving to cloud services what we see today is just the beginning of an evolutionary shift. The Australian Commonwealth “spends about AU$5 billion per year on IT, so spending AU$30 million on cloud computing is only a start”. For those building products who still believe that government is reluctant to embrace the cloud and SaaS evolution think again!
