Cloud Ctrl has scored a spot in the 2017 SMART 100

 

1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

…co-founders Faith and Braden were working for an ASX listed professional services company and each day the customers they were talking to were having issues reconciling their cloud consumption bills from AWS and Microsoft (Azure). Braden came up with an idea. Through skunk works they built the first version of the product.

Government Move to Cloud

There is no doubt that government is moving to cloud services what we see today is just the beginning of an evolutionary shift. The Australian Commonwealth “spends about AU$5 billion per year on IT, so spending AU$30 million on cloud computing is only a start”.
