US-based modern software delivery platform, Harness recently launched the Harness Global Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner program. The program will help organizations working with trusted MSPs manage their cloud spend, consumption, and resources with the Harness Cloud Cost Management (CCM) module with the assistance of the MSP they choose.
Cloud adoption is a business necessity because it can help organizations speed up the delivery of software. However, it can be complicated and expensive to get started. According to a recent study, organizations waste over 30% of their cloud spending because they don’t have the knowledge or support to make the most of it. MSPs provide the expertise, support, and technology needed for businesses to transition to the cloud and manage costs effectively.
“Companies are eager to move to the cloud, but many struggles with the complexities and costs associated with making that transition,” said Jason Eubanks, Chief Revenue Officer, Harness. “With the Harness Global MSP partner program, customers are able to leverage our software delivery platform and Cloud Cost Management capabilities together with the support, services, and training of an MSP partner.”
The new MSP program enables Harness MSP partners to offer the Harness CCM module for helping FinOps, DevOps and IT teams manage cloud computing resources and implement automation to reduce cloud costs. Harness will keep adding its full suite of modules to the program, which includes continuous delivery, continuous integration, service reliability management, feature flags, security testing orchestration, and chaos engineering.
This MSP offering uses the momentum of Harness’s $230 million Series D funding raise to help organizations with their digital transformation and migration to the cloud.

Bob Dyksen, Evolutio’s Director of Automation, said, “The CCM MSP solution that we are now able to offer our clients further promotes our mission. We are excited as it truly allows us to meet our clients’ pace, accelerate cloud migration, and democratize cloud spending as well as realize true cloud savings. With multiple stakeholders involved in a client’s digital journey, our goal has been to provide teams with the right information, at the right time, and when they need it.

The software for Evolutio’s CCM Managed Services solution, which is powered by Harness CCM, can help organizations generate dashboards that show them what they need to do in order to improve their cloud infrastructure. The software also helps identify unexpected cloud spending and stops non-production cloud workloads. As part of the Managed Services, Evolutio’s experts are available on-demand so teams across different departments can collaborate on data-driven decisions. Cloud cost savings of 20-60% can be achieved, much of which is saved automatically depending on the cloud inventory and purpose.
Harness CCM along with Evolutio’s experience in delivering professional services will help organizations enable cultural change and significant cloud cost savings.
