Equifax’s vision is to be the trusted global leader in data, advanced analytics, and technology that creates innovative solutions and insights that help customers drive growth and move people forward.
Transformation is based on three key strategies. As a first step, we need to ensure that we are building our platforms in such a way that they are fully secure and have multiple layers of security.
Manav Doshi, GM Technology Solutions at Equifax shares how being 100% in the cloud would have significantly improved their availability, reliability, and ability to innovate for our customers.
Equifax’s third focus is on data. By leveraging the cloud provider’s capabilities, we were able to create a highly scalable and consistent data lifecycle management platform.
In this interview, Manav outlines the challenges they faced and the solutions they developed to optimise their journey.
- The most important thing in optimising your cloud journey is to start early. Equifax were transforming at a global scale with different regions transforming at different stages. We were able to identify the importance of this early and be agile in our thinking and priorities.
- Make sure there is a shared accountability model, not just a tech led initiative. FinOps to be successful has to be a combination of technology, finance, procurement product.
- Ensure that the conversation is not just purely about cost, but about value. Cloud costs will increase as workloads move to the cloud, but how can we shift the conversation to one that is more value-driven than purely cost-driven?
