Although Gartner survey respondents overwhelmingly agree that the use of public cloud leads to cost savings, data and analytics leaders who use cloud infrastructure and services for analytics, operational database management systems (DBMSs), data lakes and other data intensive environments are often surprised by cost overruns. 

"The application of financial governance controls for cloud environments will provide increased predictability and identify opportunities for cost optimization. A comprehensive approach combining proactive, reactive and product-specific measures is essential for predictable budgeting for cloud data manage." per Gartner.
