Coupa case study

At a glance

Coupa is a leading global technology platform for business spend management with 1,300 employees. Coupa’s business solutions are built on the cloud. As the company rapidly expanded, managing their multi-cloud environment along with its costs became top priorities. Already a customer, Coupa added additional Flexera capability and gained cost visibility, discount reporting and cost optimization concierge services. So far, Coupa has had meaningful savings annually on reserved instances and upgrading old instances.

The challenge

Better cost control in a multi-cloud environment

Coupa’s business spend management solutions are built on the cloud. With rapid growth came the challenges of managing a multi-cloud environment and the costs associated with it. Coupa had already been using a Flexera solution in conjunction with another provider to manage their reserved instances. But as business expanded, Coupa needed a more comprehensive view of their spending to gain better cost control.

Growing global technology platform needed better cloud cost control

The solution

Gain greater visibility of usage to optimize cloud spend

Flexera built custom reports to demonstrate how it could match Coupa’s then-current provider for reserved instances, as well as deliver better overall financial reporting. With Flexera, Coupa has complete visibility of their cloud spend with custom reporting, plus trusted advisors who guide them through complex cost management challenges such as AWS reserved instance purchases, exchanges and modifications for AmazonEC2, RDS and Redshift. Old instance families were upgraded as well.

Flexera helped us get insights on our cloud spend and be more efficient by reducing waste.
