"SOS were able to help navigate the complexity of public cloud cost usage and provide valuable optimisation recommendations which translated to cost savings on a monthly spend in cloud. I was impressed with the way the team delved into consumption data and found scenarios in which we could optimise our spend in cloud."

Gehan De Silva, Infrastructure Lead, Silver Chain

"SOS was instrumental in giving us the understanding we needed about our licensing position. We would never have been able to do it and understand it without an impartial observer. SOS helped us look at the business from a granular level, and they provided us with sound licensing and spending decisions based on operational requirements. "
