Spot by NetApp is once again a leader and outperformer in FinOps, according to tech industry analyst firm GigaOm. The recent 2023 GigaOm Radar for Cloud FinOps explores “key FinOps tools vendors and equips IT decision-makers with the information needed to select the best fit for their business and use case requirement.”

The report highlights Spot by NetApp’s FinOps solutions for cloud cost management, commitment portfolio management and optimization, infrastructure optimization (for containers and VMs), and more. On Spot’s capabilities, GigaOm concluded that “Integration with a wider suite of cloud management and automation tools places the Spot portfolio in a position to respond to new and evolving market needs.”


How Spot by NetApp performs on the FinOps stage

To compare FinOps solutions, GigaOm plots vendors along a chart (or “Radar”) according to their features, platform, maturity, and innovation. The closer to the center of the Radar a vendor appears, the more they strike a balance between maturity in the marketplace and innovation to stay ahead of the competition. This analysis also compares whether a vendor has a focus on narrow features versus building a broader platform.
