Optimizing your FinOps Strategy with AWS is a 50-minute fundamental-level, digital course designed for anyone with an interest in learning more about the intersection of cost optimization and operations within AWS, such as financial analysts. The course helps learners better understand both the “how” of managing costs (operational considerations) and the “why” (financial insights with tracking and analyzing spend), framing various cloud topics in the context of both finance and operational considerations. Learners will leave the course with greater confidence in discussing and evaluating AWS cost and operations matters. Start learning with Optimizing your FinOps Strategy with AWS today.
Intermediate- and Advanced-level courses
Storage: Learn how to optimize your workload to the right AWS Snow option
