Pandemic forced a lot of businesses to adopt digital transformation, in a rapid manner. Public clouds assisted this adoption but there was a need to drive efficient spending on IT. Organizations had to strike a balance between speed and spending in this adoption phase and required a third eye over their spending across the board.
So far, we have concentrated on giving an in-depth visualization of the AWS spending, where one shall drill down to the cost of a resource and use the power of tags to achieve any level of cost segregation and budgeting. This year, we are planning to expand our depth and breadth across the product .
A gist of what's expected this year...
We had a very successful pre beta program for Azure CloudSpend and we thank our customers for the same. We are planning to release the support for Azure this year.
We are planning to integrate cost data with our monitoring stats contextually. This will open up a wide range of possibilities to maintain the respective cloud accounts. This will help us give better insights, via our Guidance Report and build a better recommendation platform.
Our reports, budgets and views are quite robust with monthly estimations but we have understood from the customers that daily data is something that will help them understand the pattern of spending within a month as well. So, this is at the top of our release list this year
We have an excellent support for budgets, with a lot of flexible options but customers are in need of the historical view of their spending against the budgeted value. We are planning to give an in-depth overview of the customer budgets over a period .
We are planning to bring in a more customized reporting option, where a customer shall create their widget for each cost component or tag profile and have a dashboard designed out of it.
Cost forecasting is the best indicator of what's the expected accrued spending at the end of the month or year. We plan to use AI to give the best approximation, so that, the customer shall be better prepared to tune their budgets accordingly.
We are planning to provide an in-depth view of the resource utilization . Customers should be able to slice and dice to understand their utilization levels at each category. Adding to this, with cost estimation, the customers get the power of right sizing.
Our roadmap is subject to change based on market trends, but our focus to provide you with the best possible product experience in terms of features based on feedback remains steadfast.
