About Strategic Blue

Founded in 2010, we specialise in cloud procurement, cost management, and optimisation. We provide Cloud Financial Operations (FinOps") services to commercial and public sector organisations, primarily in the UK and the US, that buy the cloud services offered by AWS and Google.

Our FinOps services allow cloud customers to buy in the way they want, understand what they have bought and continually optimise cloud costs. Our customers benefit from additional discounts not possible directly from cloud vendors and can access free tools and services for which other vendors charge.

As financial experts in the cloud, we help organisations develop the sophistication of their cloud procurement, governance, and assurance processes. We understand how to achieve the necessary integration between a customer’s technical and financial teams.
