We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Transparency and visibility are the key features.The sizing recommendation will look, and say, "You are only using this at 80%," then recommend a better fit for you.Each user can have their own dashboard that they want to consume. Instead of having to share one dashboard for multiple users, you can create individual views for each user to view, and that view will contain only their own accounts, which allows for separation of data.It has already given us insight into how to optimize. So, we are now ramping up steadily its usage.It provides us visibility, then we can turn around and can give the leadership team more information, which we could not previously give them.

Cons
The dashboard needs to include more graphs per team to show what individual teams are spending in a given time period.We would like them to have a linear regression, so we can be predictive for budgets, allocations, and the year's follow ups. We also want to have a longer window of analytics with better certainty that our workload will fit the model, not just in a two week window.The API is not well-documented. It is not straightforward and difficult to use. This needs to be improved, as it is very difficult for our developers to develop automation around it.There is always room for improvement in education and training. We are not that mature in terms of our automation. It could help us identify where we could optimize in terms of build.We have dealt with a few technical support people where we ask for one thing and they might not deliver straightaway. It seems like they are a stretched across multiple customers.

It justifies the cost and is worth it.My team is one of the most expensive teams, and we look at it quite a bit. We have probably easily saved around $400,000 USD a year.We have seen ROI with the reserved instances, and having the ability to predict what reserved instances you can get. We can save tens of thousands of dollars, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in some cases.
