One-Click Cloud Cost Optimization for Peace of Mind

GroundTruth eliminated cloud cost leaks and increased cloud ROI with Xi Beam. 

COMPANY PROFILE

GroundTruth delivers location-based marketing solutions to drive physical store visits and sales by leveraging location as the primary source of intent of consumers. Through its data foundation, GroundTruth sees two out three smartphone users in the U.S. and more than 20 billion physical visits annually across 21 countries globally.  

CHALLENGE

GroundTruth runs some of its workloads on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and has a team of engineers to manage infrastructure. As the company grew exponentially, so did their AWS cloud usage—resulting in skyrocketing cloud costs with limited spend visibility across multiple business units.

Xi Beam provides complete cloud governance within a single pane of glass, so that we can understand how business unit costs are growing, from budgeted to actual cloud spend.
