Dan Tucker, a vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton and head of the company's digital platform capability team, has said that cloud operations and costs can “spiral out of control“ if not managed well, Meritalk reported Monday.

“A lot of agencies, as they move to the cloud are novices““for good reasons““at forecasting the costs,“ he added.

Tucker cited how ParkMyCloud, RightScale, CloudCheckr and other third-party management tools could help users handling hybrid or multicloud environments make forecasts and assessments on various operational costs.

“Some of these tools are effective at helping you understand your costs and forecast because an agency [manager] might not be thinking about what is needed for sandboxes, testing, pre-production, and production environments,“ he noted.

Tucker discussed how such tools help organizations generate a baseline of their storage and input/output requirements and mentioned the machine learning capability of cloud-native services and cloud forecasting platforms.
