Apptio, Inc., a provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions is selecting Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the preferred Cloud Services Provider (“CSP”) on which to run its own workloads.
The two companies are also entering into a Strategic Collaboration Agreement focusing on the marketing and distribution of Apptio’s Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management applications, helping customers make intelligent decisions on how to migrate to AWS.
Apptio’s expanded use of AWS can allow the company to decrease operational burden, improve speed of deployment, expand into new regions, and more rapidly deliver product innovation to its customers.
Apptio used its Hybrid Business Management application to determine its selection of AWS. AWS will be instrumental as Apptio continues growing across its product portfolio and customer base, allowing its customers to better analyze, optimize, and plan for technology spending across the entire IT portfolio.
“We’re thrilled to grow our relationship with Apptio to help them deliver their proven capabilities to our customers,” said Doug Yeum, head of worldwide channels and alliances, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Apptio’s Hybrid Business Management application can allow our customers to accelerate their migrations to AWS by doing apples to apples comparisons while also managing and optimizing their AWS spend.”
Apptio will leverage AWS’s extensive catalogue of services to provide customers with a superior experience.
Apptio’s Cost Transparency solution will leverage Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to continue to scale as it ingests and normalizes ever-growing IT spending data to deliver analytics and alerts to users that highlight opportunities for cost savings, increased productivity, and risk reduction.
Additionally, Apptio IT Planning and Agile Investment Management will further expand use of AWS across Amazon EC2, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon DynamoDB to accelerate the IT planning, budgeting, and forecasting processes of Apptio customers.
Apptio Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management will increase use of Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, and analytics and machine learning (ML) services such as Amazon Athena, Amazon Elasticsearch Service, and Amazon SageMaker to provide enhanced cloud cost management, migration, and optimization solutions to customers.
Further, Apptio and AWS will go-to-market with Apptio Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management. Apptio Cloudability applies ML to cloud resources and associated financial and operational data, regardless of provider, to simplify complex bills, increasing data quality and accessibility while also delivering powerful insights that optimize spending and save money. AWS customers will now be able to purchase Apptio Cloudability and Hybrid Business Management directly through the AWS Marketplace.
