Pythian helps health insurer lock in performance and savings.
Cloud costs and frustrations add up with previous provider
When they started the company, MotivHealth’s founders knew they wanted to launch a cloud offering. However, the strict data privacy and security requirements of healthcare’s HIPAA legislation limited their hosting options. Ultimately, they chose the only provider available within compliance.
MotivHealth started with their previous provider six years ago. But they charged more than what was realistic for their HIPAA compliance. The playing field opened up when Google created a HIPAA-compliant cloud that was perfect for MotivHealth’s needs. After just two years, MotivHealth moved to Google Cloud.
Switch to Google improves performance and boosts innovation
After four years with Google Cloud, MotivHealth knew it was time for a more proactive approach to managing expenses. With Pythian’s guidance, MotivHealth explored a variety of commitment agreements and potential discounts available through Google.
Over a few weeks, Pythian took a deep dive into MotivHealth’s cloud usage, leveraging detailed data provided by Google. The resulting analysis, forecast and recommendations gave MotivHealth the confidence to negotiate a five-year agreement to optimize costs and efficiency.
"We’re getting a deep savings on services we were already running, and able to upgrade our machine types. The committed use discount is an environmentally friendly way to allocate resources and make the dollars work better at the same time."
