Optimize All IT Costs, Not Just Cloud!

Many organizations focus on cloud cost optimization but overlook other critical areas. Legacy systems like mainframes and Unix platforms, as well as licenses and labor costs, also need attention. YäRKEN helps you:

  • Legacy Systems: Optimize costs for mainframes and Unix platforms.
  • Other Platforms: Review and streamline on-premises servers, storage, and networking.
  • Licenses and Labor: Audit software licenses and manage internal and external labor costs efficiently.

By adopting a holistic approach, YäRKEN ensures you capture the full spectrum of costs, leading to smarter investments and greater business value.

Ingest All Data

Many Business Cases fail. Yours doesn’t have to.

As organizations leverage cloud-enabled services, many don’t get the benefits they expected. They struggle to align investment with business value because they’re not capturing the full spectrum of costs. And that’s costing them...

Cost Transparency-1

The hidden cost of cloud and why multi-cloud is tripping companies up

The challenge doesn’t come in adopting cloud, but in effectively managing multiple providers, and understanding the true cost of cloud-enabled services from build to BAU.

Double Up

Wrestling with mismanaged cloud tags is like trying to solve a puzzle with missing pieces, leading to obscured cost insights.

Shared Cost Confusion

Shared use of cloud resources complicates cost allocation - making accurate showback & chargeback a nightmare.

Pie Chart

Fixating on cost rather than value can lead to short-sighted decisions that compromise long-term gains.

Accountability Evasion

Without clear visibility on spend, accountability is challenging and it quickly becomes a wild west.


Focussing solely on cloud cost? You’re missing the mammoth share of the cost spectrum.

Tech Sprawl

More cloud services, more chaos. Tech sprawl leads to redundant tools, underused resources & cost overruns.

“YäRKEN allows our team to rapidly configure client use cases (e.g Vendor Spend, App TCO, Showback), enabling faster time to value. The Yarken solution provides an extremely flexible, yet powerful, Cost Transparency platform that gets to the heart of our client’s needs to align IT expenditure with the business, and to use these insights to surface and quantify business value outcomes. As a result our clients achieve a fast Return on Investment (ROI) and a sustainable basis on which to optimise IT spend.“
