The push towards cloud migration hasn’t slowed through the first half of 2023. Many organizations now understand the necessity of having an extensive cloud migration planning process and preparing for successful day-two activities. Understanding app dependencies and assessing technical feasibility remain top challenges for organizations, according to the Flexera 2023 State of the Cloud Report.
A critical portion of Flexera One FinOps, Cloud Migration and Modernization strives to continually evolve and set up organizations for the best possible migration plan while preparing to address day-two operations and implementing FinOps best practices through measured cost allocation and visibility.
In H1 2023, Flexera One Cloud Migration and Modernization has introduced:

Flexera One Cloud Migration and Modernization now supports Oracle Cloud pricing in addition to AWS, Azure and GCP to expand recommendations and forecasting for cloud migration workloads and costs. Organizations can now understand the cost implications of a wider range of top cloud provider choices and options that best fit the organization’s unique needs.
Recalculating cost views
Clients of Cloud Migration and Modernization can now recalculate cost views using updated costs or collected metrics by simply using the product’s UI, allowing for a quicker and more calculated view of migration options that are more relevant to an organization to ensure successful future FinOps efforts.
