I think the machine learning aspect of it probably does help because machine learning is not really machine learning. That needs some help. Better reporting is always something needed. That could be an answer to just about anything. But you always want better reporting, better dashboards, things that are just more dynamic and more accessible.

I haven't really thought about how the solution could be improved and I'm not sure what features are lacking. The solution should adjust its pricing. We tend to find the costs for using it are a little high. Right now, in relation to monitoring services, there are too many services and too many metrics per service. I understand that it's per service but some complex acronyms, etc., make it kind of hard to understand the solution sometimes.

The drill-down aspect on the dashboard of the solution needs improvement. We get a very good high-level overview, but when we drill down, it becomes a little less clear. We have given this feedback to AWS as well and hope they will improve this in the future.
