Financial governance

We have already described the fairly significant changes to IT finance implied by the cloud: the change from a capital expense model to an operational expense, or subscription model. Financial
governance ensures that the financial changes are managed in a methodical and predictable fashion,
including:

 Actual cloud costs are in line with predicted cloud costs
 Capital expenses are declining in line with expectations
