We're just customers. We aren't partners of Cloudability. We're using the latest version of the solution, as far as I know. We're still in the initial phase, however, we're finding, overall that it works well. If you're looking into multi-cloud functionality, definitely go for it. If you're sticking with the one cloud, for example, if your organization is just using Azure, it may be better to use a tool dedicated to that. Cloudability would also work fine in that instance, however. If your organization isn't too complex, you may be able to piece together everything with what's there. I would rate the solution at a six out of ten. The reason is mainly due to my own limited knowledge or exposure to the product so far. As I said, the process is manual. I don't have a tool for it. It is maybe how we've addressed it so far. Once we dig deep into it, we'll come to know a bit more about if maybe Cloudability can grab the data directly from Azure. We need not move beyond this manual processing. Maybe the reason is due to the complexity of our own organization. Once that is addressed, the tool is going to work really well.

I rate it a nine out of ten, as it provides a holistic view of financials and is an enabling technology.

The product is probably not valuable until you are over a certain threshold in compute power. While I don't know what the actual cost is, if you were to say, "We could save you X amount and that would offset the cost of their product, then it is probably starting to be in the realm of being worth it." We only use the AWS version.

It is a standalone product, but it does integrate for identity with our other directory. This is pretty straightforward, and it works. AWS doesn't have a version of this product. Cloudability is a billing and reporting tool. AWS does have capability to provide billing data, but the report and analytics portion of it is not provided by AWS. AWS just provides the data and cloud ability to ingest the data and do the reports. If you are heavy on automation, then this might not be a good product because the API is not very well-documented. If you need accuracy in your data at the moment, there is some discrepancy in the billing data. So, you should factor that into in your decision.

I would recommend Cloudability to other people. If you are looking for a seamless, simple to use, and in-depth, cloud, building analysis tooll, Cloudablity serves all these purposes. It manages all my needs. We are using the AWS SaaS version.

The product is quite interesting. Where we receive a benefit from Cloudability, we now see it more with the AWS offering. They have AWS Cost Explorer, along with the features we like having comprehensive support through AWS. Therefore, Cloudability needs to stay one step ahead of the curve. However, there are a few different parts of Cloudability that we are not fully utilizing yet which we will be utilizing in the future. This means that we are picking up a few more of their features and user adoption in our company will be much greater. Define what you really want out of your AWS Cost Explorer, then evaluate all the different options. So, evaluate AWS Cost Explorer first, then determine if you want to use Cloudability. We use the AWS version of the product. I'm quite happy with most of the product.
