CloudForecast is not meant to be a replacement to Cost Explorer. However, our customers find Cost Explorer lacking in features and reporting that their whole organization needs.
It is difficult to rely on multiple stakeholders to log-in cost explorer, find the right views, enter in the filters, pull the right reports, figure out where anomalies are and be proactive about monitoring cost. It's a mind numbing process to do this everyday, which distracts teams from actual technical challenges.
Our proactive reporting is well-designed and thoughtful, so that it takes less than 30 seconds to understand your cost and anomalies. We only surface the important information that a team needs to help answer questions.
You can try if you have the time and engineering resources to build and maintain it! Companies that use CloudForecast do not have the that luxury or time to have their engineering resources tied up to building internal tooling.
The opportunity cost is high, which can take away precious engineering time and resources from building features that drive their organization forward. We make it easy for with an out-of-the-box solution that requires little engineering resources to get started.
Example: AWS makes changes to their CUR file format all the time without letting their users know about it. It often can be a surprise when this happens and time consuming to find and adjust to those changes.

All of our data and credentials are encrypted using the AES encryption algorithm with a 256-bit key.
