Harness, the US-based modern software delivery platform, recently launched the Harness Global Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner program. The program helps organizations working with trusted MSPs to manage their cloud spend, usage and resources with the Harness Cloud Cost Management (CCM) module with support from their MSP of choice.
Cloud adoption is a business imperative because it can help organizations accelerate software delivery. However, getting started can be complicated and expensive. According to a recent study, organizations waste over 30% of their cloud spend because they don’t have the knowledge or support to make the most of it. MSPs provide the expertise, support, and technology businesses need to transition to the cloud and effectively manage costs.
“Enterprises are keen to move to the cloud, but many are struggling with the complexities and costs associated with this transition.” said Jason Eubanks, Chief Revenue Officer, Harness. “The Harness Global MSP Partner Program allows customers to leverage our software delivery platform and cloud cost management capabilities along with the support, services and training of an MSP partner.”
The new MSP program enables Harness MSP partners to offer the Harness CCM module to help FinOps, DevOps and IT teams manage cloud computing resources and implement automation to reduce cloud costs support. Harness will continue to add its full suite of modules to the program, which includes continuous delivery, continuous integration, service reliability management, feature flags, security test orchestration, and chaos engineering.
This MSP offering leverages the momentum of Harness’ $230 million Series D funding to help organizations in their digital transformation and migration to the cloud.
