Hive is a supplier of smart home products and services with one million customers in the UK. As the UK’s leading smart home solutions provider, the company wants to become the center of the connected home and expand internationally. To fully understand the huge amount of data generated by its smart home sensors, Hive works with Wavefront™ by VMware® to analyze and monitor its cloud platform. This insight is driving IT efficiency and creating real-time service difference.

“Wavefront™ by VMware® gives me visibility on where to focus. Where were my big cost centers? Where were my dynamically-changing cost centers? As a result, we’ve managed to reduce our monthly cloud spend by 25%.”
