Apptio Acquires Cloudwiry

Apptio Inc., a provider of technology business management (TBM) applications, announced it has acquired Cloudwiry, a market leader in multi-cloud savings automation and FinOps. Founded in 2016, Cloudwiry automates commitment management and optimization on behalf of its enterprise customers.

“As broad macroeconomic headwinds continue to present themselves, our customers increasingly rely on Apptio for visibility, optimization, and automation to manage their public cloud spend,” said Sunny Gupta, Apptio CEO. “By pairing Apptio’s market-leading Cloudability with Cloudwiry, we are able to provide customers with unparalleled visibility, insights, planning, optimization and automation capabilities for reservations and savings plans, helping customers deploy the most efficient cloud infrastructure footprint to fuel innovation and meet business demands.”

Based in Austin, Texas, Cloudwiry was founded to simplify the biggest cloud cost challenges through automation and innovation. Cloudwiry recognized sources of waste and inefficiency in the cloud and the subsequent need for automated financial management and enhanced cost insights.

Addressing this need, Cloudwiry developed a platform centered around automated rate optimization, rightsizing, and interactive inventory capabilities across AWS, Azure, and GCP. Cloudwiry helps companies better manage reserved instances and savings plans through the Cloudwiry Savings Autopilot tool, allowing many to reach better that 95 percent coverage and 99 percent utilization.

“Not only do strong synergies exist between the Apptio and Cloudwiry products, but we also have a shared passion for helping customers increase productivity, reduce waste and save money,” said Aditya Datta, founder and CEO of Cloudwiry. “Cloudwiry was built to automate cloud financial instruments like reserved instances and savings plans so that FinOps practitioners could focus their time on more important priorities and companies could recognize more meaningful savings with better coverage and utilization.”

Together, Cloudwiry and Apptio will empower thousands of customers to drive financial and operational excellence in cloud and hybrid environments with the market’s most mature and powerful platform.

The transaction closed Dec. 22, and Cloudwiry will no longer operate as an independent company but will be integrated into Apptio.
