Pay As You Go Cover

Scale Up Your Agency’s Success

Agencies have a lot of data to manage and that can get costly – it’s estimated that 45% or more of all enterprise IT spending will be used toward public cloud solutions by 2026.  

In order to manage those fluctuating costs, agencies need a way to set a consistent budget for their IT team, while still meeting their organization’s needs for data storage.  

A pay-as-you-go solution could be the answer for your agency. This model can provide:  

  • Greater financial predictability and the means to manage your agency’s spending more accurately: In an on-demand consumption model, an agency pays for a “committed capacity” — the resources it expects to use in a given period — and if your agency has underestimated its usage, a “buffer capacity” is built in and already available at a predetermined rate.  
  • Flexible but predictable payments: In a pay-as-you-go solution, the committed capacity is a known expense, and that expense is capped at 85% of capacity, regardless of how much you use.  
  • The ability to adapt on demand: As government workloads may fluctuate unpredictably, agencies require a cost-effective means to adjust their resources to meet their needs. If your organization consistently goes beyond its committed capacity, the vendor will adjust accordingly.  
  • Strategic planning: Agencies can struggle to keep IT current, especially with recent supply chain issues. A vendor-supported consumption model empowers your IT leaders to have strategic planning conversations, to ensure they are not caught short as new needs arise.  
  • In short, a pay-as-you-go model offers the modernized tools and capabilities needed to enhance citizen service without having to purchase extra hardware or hire additional staff.
