CIO Podcast Learn more

It’s an assumption that has been allowed to grow unchecked for some time, however the jury is officially still out on whether public cloud infrastructure is cheaper than running on-premises data centres.

In this episode we talk to Nine’s chief information and technology officer Damian Cronan about his long journey managing the costs and applications of the cloud, as well as Rohan Penman, CIO with bespoke Tea brand T2 Tea, who shares a rather alarming anecdote about how series cloud bill shock can get.

And Gartner’s Chris Ganly confirms what many of us suspect, that there’s still plenty of confusion about cloud pricing still out there, even amongst quite senior tech leaders.
