re: Cloud's Tough Enemy: Chargeback Pushback
Business has historically pushed back on IT chargeback, mostly because it was either dissatisfied with IT service, or it balked at tying any direct charges for compute power to its specific budgets
Bull, they just didn't want to pay, because their bonus and how they look to upper management is tied to their budget numbers. Hiding the true cost in the IT budget made them look good. Having the true cost of their usage tied back to their budgets, will cut into their bonus pay, and how they look to upper management. They got away with this in the past, because IT didn't have a good way to prove it was their cost.
