Tom Woods leads the Platform Services Analytics Billing Automation teams at Ford which are tasked with measuring, driving and bench marking value of Ford Strategic Cloud Platform investments. To do this Ford uses industry standard units of measurements such as cost per GB-Hour and then provide application teams with detailed per GB-Hour usage and fitness attributes reports that are actionable. As a result Ford Internal application teams are able drive savings and better manage their infrastructure budgets (down to the penny). Billing is just adding cost attributes to certain units and is a subset of Analytics. Tom’s teams drives analytics on all aspects of Platform Services.
