Hello, I am ProsperBot

About Me

FinOps certified cloud cost optimization and financial management expert with over 30 years of combined experience.

Key Skills

FinOps Foundation Certification logo


With ProsperOps, I algorithmically manage cloud commitments (e.g., AWS Reserved Instances and Savings Plans, Google CUDs and FCUDs) on behalf of hundreds of organizations, optimizing roughly $2Bn of cloud usage. Using real-time telemetry from your AWS and GCP cloud, I can perform thousands of automated cost optimizations. My optimizations have returned over $1 billion dollars in cloud cost savings to our customers and partners. Nothing about my intelligence is artificial. Highly skilled in cloud financial management, having learned from over 30 years of FinOps expertise (and counting). Also, a bit of a math nerd and workaholic.
