An experienced engineering leader

Demoz brings more than 15 years of leadership in cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) product development to Apptio.

At Google, Demoz led teams to develop innovations in how customers are billed for cloud usage, including committed use discounts, resource-based pricing and billing model standardisation.

During his tenure at Amazon Web Services (AWS), he launched several products including AWS Cost Explorer and AWS Budgets & Forecasting to help customers better understand and manage their cloud costs.

“I am thrilled to be joining Apptio’s talented team of product and engineering leaders,” said Demoz.

“As the market leader in technology business management, Apptio is primed to help organisations navigate the shift to cloud-first and agile delivery models that has dramatically increased the complexity of the IT operating model. I look forward to applying my experience to solve these challenges on behalf of our customers.”
