Users should go for this solution if they don't need to have multi-account architecture. That's basically the only advice I have. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

We largely work with the cloud deployment model. I'd recommend the solution and I'd encourage others to go for it. You don't need to do planning. They're very helpful. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Cloud solutions exist because of costs and efficiency optimization. Those are the key parameters for going to the top, otherwise you just have it on-premises and carry on running it the way you are. Being able to do absolutely every part of the technology from your disaster recovery solution to your backup, to your cloud adoption, the cloud integration, your application integration is a service. So everything is done as a service. It's a more cost effective way of informing and telling the business how they manage their costs or their money. My advice to others looking into implementing this solution, would be to go for it. They should bite the bullet at the beginning and spend the money, because it will help the organization in managing that cost for adoption for the entire lifetime of that cloud solution. An additional feature that I would you like to see included in the next release, is automation. Part of what cost management is to determine the best way to use a solution, a cloud or a workload. Those workloads have the storage association. They have CPU association and they have computer association. What AWS Cost Management needs, is a backend into an optimization tool that can automatically manage your resources so that you don't over-spend on resources. My rating for this solution would be a six out of ten.
