DoiT Platform

Overview

DoiT provides technology and cloud expertise to help organizations utilize public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud (GCP), and Microsoft Azure.

Underpinning DoiT's products, the DoiT Platform addresses complex cloud challenges and optimizes cloud costs, thereby enhancing the overall business value for organizations. It is a comprehensive FinOps solution that helps you understand, optimize, and take control of your cloud spend.

Cloud Analytics

Cloud Analytics enriches and organizes cloud billing data. It allows you to gather all the required information about cloud usage and cost, normalize the data, make it available for review, and circulate it to relevant personas.

  • Reports: Get instant visibility and gain insights into your cloud usage and spending at all levels.

  • Attributions: Group cloud resources based on your business aspects.

  • Attribution groups: Segment data collected for a specific metric; encourage teams to take ownership of their cloud usage by appropriately managing shared cost.

  • Metrics: Measure key performance indicators in your organization when reporting on cost and usage of cloud environments.

Cost optimization

The cost optimization features help you manage commitment based discounts, monitor resource consumption, and match running cloud resources to the actual demand to improve resource utilization.

  • Flexsave: Automate the process of managing commitments and optimize cloud-compute discounts for AWS.

  • Spot Scaling: Proactively monitor AWS Auto-Scaling Groups and replace On-Demand EC2 instances with Spot Instances.

  • Rightsizing recommendations (Google Cloud): Get notified of idle resources across GCP projects. Avoid paying for underutilized resources.

  • BigQuery Lens (Google Cloud): Highlight inefficiencies in BigQuery usage and provide actionable optimization recommendations.

Cloud governance

DoiT Platform offers a rich feature set to help you build a culture of FinOps, and facilitate the adoption of FinOps best practices to maintain optimal cloud usage and cost efficiency.

Governance and policy

  • Alerts: Get notified of important events or conditions in your cloud environment.

  • Budgets: Set budgets and configure alert thresholds to track actual cloud spend against planned spend.

  • Anomaly detection: Identify spikes in your cloud costs. Get insights into the contributing factors and take corrective actions if necessary.

  • Quota monitoring (Google Cloud, AWS): Stay on top of cloud quotas with proactive monitoring. Get notified when you're approaching quota limits.

  • Ramp plans: Visualize and track your progress towards the committed goal to take full advantage of spend-based commitment discounts.

  • Sandbox (Google Cloud): Automate management of Google Cloud sandboxes, which offer engineering teams a safe and controlled environment to run experiments, test, and build out new features without worrying about impacting production infrastructure.

Billing and invoicing

  • Assets: Self-service management of assets (licenses and subscriptions) across Google Cloud, AWS, Google Workspace, Looker, Microsoft Azure, and Office 365.

  • Billing Profiles: Manage your billing account, payment method, and invoice setting.

  • Invoices: View detailed records of cloud usage and costs during a specific billing period across cloud platforms.

  • Invoice Bucketing: Create custom buckets for assets assignments. This is especially useful if you have different cost centers with different assets and want to bill them separately.

Identity and access management

  • Roles and permissions: Implement role-based access control (RBAC) to regulate user access to various DoiT features.

  • Single Sign-On (SSO): Provide a streamlined and secure authentication process, reducing the need for multiple login credentials and simplifying user management.

  • Organizations: Establish decentralized section management by creating organizations for teams to mirror your organizational structure within the DoiT Console, and provide tightly scoped Cloud Analytics experience for teams.

Services

  • Consulting and support: Get access to experienced cloud architects and engineers around the globe for help with AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, and DoiT Platform.

  • ISV solutions: Enjoy DoiT ISV (independent software vendor) solutions, including promotions, special offers, price packages, and more.

  • Training, Professional services, Live & On-demand events: Access a range of exclusive training resources, professional services provided by our team of industry-leading Cloud Reliability Engineers, DoiT live workshops, on-demand events, and Office Hours.
