Djuno is an IT platform that solves the problem of costly cloud or on-prem infrastructure migration and management. It offers convenience and automation, so companies save internal resources. It offers flexibility and full control over the tech stack with near instant migration. This all results in significant cost savings (in addition to easier development, faster deployment and higher reliability).

One of the most common questions people ask is a variation of “what exactly are the cost savings” or “what are the average cost savings over a 5 year period”. It is one of these “how long is a piece of string” questions. It’s complex and depends on many factors, but we have a framework that can be used to estimate the savings and can provide some actual numbers for reference.

External cloud costs

In general, our conservative estimate is that companies can save around 30% of their cloud expenses. This is in line with recent research that confirms that about 30% of cloud spending is wasted [2020 Flexera state of the cloud report].

Internal resources

Opportunity costs and other business related items

The above items have a profound impact on the whole business, especially when compounded over time. In general, the question is how much does it cost to have a business that is not flexible and has its culture and processes negatively impacted by obsolete IT architecture. With Djuno, the company’s IT environment becomes an asset and every piece of code is a reusable building block that can generate compound yield in the future (vs. a liability of technical debt and escalating costs of disposable code and inefficient infrastructure).

In summary: the cost savings are significant and the positive impact on the entire business is profound. You should try it! [BTW, we have a zero-risk, no commitment “return policy”: we deploy Djuno for you, estimate the impact, present you with the offer and if you don’t like it, we take Djuno back, no questions asked].
