How Does it Work?

An Agile Approach to Cost Management

Ternary does the heavy lifting to reduce the complexity of your cloud bill by putting it into simple terms and actionable recommendations. Our intuitive design allows you to focus on taking action on those recommendations, assign them to teammates and track them centrally for transparency and accountability.

Ternary's founders have worked at the heart of the DevOps movement in Silicon Valley for the last decade. At the very core of our approach are the principles and culture of transparency, communication, automation and shared responsibility.

The Power of Collaboration

Ternary eliminates silos in Engineering, Product, Procurement and Finance. We give your teams a platform that encourages cross-functional conversations, develop a shared understanding between functions of what makes up your cloud bill, where you have opportunities to save, and helps them make intelligent and informed decisions in context -- together.

The consumption-based cloud model has resulted in shifting roles, pushing accountability to the edge. Engineering teams are empowered to create resources on the fly to go to market faster, but they are disconnected from Finance and Procurement teams who traditionally provided a check on spending decisions. Our approach designs for the simple truth that everyone has a key part to play in spend management.

Creating a Culture of Accountability

Ternary is designed to naturally encourage the right behaviors by simplifying complex costs and giving cloud consumers insights and awareness of the opportunity to save. Our system creates a call to action by synthesizing thousands of statistics and presenting insights. We give your teams agency to assign, act on and centrally track all recommendations. Teams are provided with the tools they need to benchmark themselves against the best in class in your organization and make meaningful changes to your bottom line.
