Booz Allen’s Dan Tucker: Agencies Can Use 3rd-Party Mgmt Tools to Forecast Cost of Cloud Migration

Dan Tucker

TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 25, 2019 — Dan Tucker, vice president and head of the digital platform capability team at Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH), has said third-party management tools can help government agencies manage costs as they move operations to the cloud, ExecutiveBiz reported March 12.

“Some of these tools are effective at helping you understand your costs and forecast because an agency [manager] might not be thinking about what is needed for sandboxes, testing, pre-production and production environments,” Tucker said in a MeriTalk report published March 11.

He added that agencies can use these platforms to identify unused or duplicate resources such as storage drives in order to forecast usage and cost, particularly when shifting to a hybrid or multi-cloud infrastructure.
