Transparency into the complex pricing models of public clouds: helping buyers assess the value of available options, and sellers build a competitive pricing strategy.

The Cloud Price Index (CPI) is the most rigorous and comprehensive analysis of the cost of cloud computing. For the first time in the industry, buyers have complete transparency into the complex pricing models of public clouds, including analysis of the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Buyers use the CPI to answer questions such as:
  • What providers should I have on my radar for future purchases?
  • Am I getting value for money from my current provider?
  • Is this quotation reasonable considering the capability proposed?
  • What discount should I be seeking from my provider during negotiations?
  • What options are open to me with regards to pricing models?
  • Should I believe the hype of this provider’s marketing message?

Sellers use the CPI to answer questions like:
  • What is the current state of cloud service pricing across the market?
  • Are we pricing appropriately with regard to our value-adding proposition?
  • What services should we look to differentiate on price, and what services should we look to differentiate on values and features?
  • Are my competitors’ online calculators and collateral making fair claims?
