Your path to better decisions and wiser investments

Every cloud has a silver lining – and that includes your cloud investments. But as your business grows, it can be tricky to keep costs in check. Growing adoption and decentralized control of cloud services can lead to overuse, overspend, and spiraling budgets.

If this sounds familiar, you need control and clarity over your cloud consumption. Only then can you make better decisions that cut costs and lead to smarter future investments. That’s where we can help: Livingstone throws light on your cloud consumption so it stays optimized – come rain or shine.

Cloud Consumption on laptop screen

Demystify your cloud consumption

We find organizations typically overpay by as much as 24% on their cloud estates.

It’s the reason behind our Cloud Consumption service. Through monthly optimization reports and intelligent dashboards, you’ll be able to see exactly what you’re using, where you might be overspending, and what your future cloud requirements look like to turn nasty surprises into golden opportunities.

Meet and control organizational demand

Excessive organizational demand can very quickly spell bad news for your business. Too many requests, licenses, activations, and versions lead to rocketing costs and increased commercial risk.

We help quell the chaos by managing your software and cloud requests, alongside training, education, and a process framework that drives best practices and outcomes across your commercial, operational, and technical business needs.

Plan, forecast and invest with confidence

When planning your cloud and software investment, the data you forecast from has to be rock-solid in order to avoid ending up with wrong-sized contract and commercial terms.

Luckily, Livingstone analyzes your historic and current usage trends to model future requirements. Use it to plan your investments with more clarity, enter into contract negotiations with more confidence, and turn that confidence into buying power that’ll rake in savings.

Dual Screen Hub

Better consumption data for clearer insights

To truly track and manage your consumption data, you’ll want to get familiar with Livingstone Hub. It comprises a powerful predictive analytics engine that charts your cloud usage and spend data.

You’ll find accounting breakdowns for internal cross-charges, and controlled, isolated cloud environments so you can test use cases, allocate software, and project spend entirely risk-free. It’s quality consumption data you can depend on – and it’s all at your fingertips.

We couldn't be happier with the amount of cost avoidance achieved. So much so, we'd advocate that other forces who are facing the same challenges as we were, also go through this optimization process, and have passed on Livingstone as a strong recommendation.
