As the CEO of Kalibr8, I have witnessed firsthand the challenges faced by MSPs in effectively managing and optimizing cloud costs. With the rapid growth of cloud services, it has become increasingly complex for MSPs to navigate the intricacies of cloud cost optimization while maximizing revenue. That is why we have developed Kalibr8 2.0 alongside two advanced technologies that are certain to transform the way you manage cloud costs.

I am thrilled to announce the release of Kalibr8 2.0, our major platform enhancement explicitly designed for MSPs. With this new release, we are revolutionizing cloud cost management for MSPs and providing them with the necessary tools to thrive in the digital economy.

At Kalibr8, we understand the unique challenges that small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) face in the increasingly digitized business landscape. These challenges include recruiting the right IT talent, managing issues remotely, and guarding against security breaches. Unfortunately, many IT service providers neglect SMBs due to their small size despite their significant contribution to the economy.

With Kalibr8 2.0, we aim to bridge this gap and provide MSPs with the expertise and support they need to solve the IT needs of SMBs. Building on the single-pane-of-glass view that has empowered our users, Kalibr8 2.0 utilizes AI and Machine Learning techniques to take the platform to the next level, allowing users to implement ongoing policies and optimize cloud growth while controlling expenses completely automatedly. 

With this new technology at their disposal, MSPs and their end customers can immediately reduce cloud spending by 25-60% simply by licensing Kalibr8 solutions.

In addition to these powerful features, we are introducing Navig8 and Illumin8. 

Navig8 is an automatic discovery and navigation service that guides MSPs through a 5-step process to create cost-saving projects for their customers. The tool locates decommissioning, rightsizing, reserved instance analysis, and optimization recommendations in minutes, accompanied by a detailed report of potential or cost savings achieved.

Illumin8, on the other hand, is a parallel cloud-based analytics platform that provides actionable financial and operational data, enabling partners to make better business decisions. Now, with insights across all MSPs customer Azure resources, Illumin8™ is part of the only 100% channel automated cloud optimization SaaS platform in the market. This platform uses the latest machine learning and AI techniques to deliver highly accurate and valuable financial and business insights.

With these tools, the MSP is always in control and can set the parameters in a bespoke fashion to meet guidelines agreed upon with managed customer cloud accounts. 

The optimization process is streamlined with the associated web-based portal that offers a completely integrated user experience. MSPs can easily onboard as many customers as they wish, have a clear view of their cloud consumption, and reduce spending in near real-time. This level of transparency allows businesses to stay in control of their cloud expenses and make strategic decisions regarding their cloud resources.

By integrating these new powerful offerings into our multi-tenant capable optimization platform, MSPs can oversee, analyze, and manage cloud assets across multiple customer accounts and providers to the highest quality through a single pane of glass.

Demos for both Navig8 and Illumin8 are taking place this week in Denver, Colorado, at the Pax8 BEYOND 2024 annual gathering, where MSPs and Pax8 Marketplace vendors are sharing the latest innovations in cloud computing, cloud services, cloud security, management, and growth strategies.

We will be exhibiting in booth 214.
