Understanding your spend recommendations is paramount to optimizing your cloud spend and usage.  With the latest update to the Flexera One Cost Optimization Total Potential Savings you can now see where the biggest savings opportunities are on a single page.  Additionally, more filtering capabilities are available to quickly find the recommendations to optimize your cloud cost and usage.

The following changes have been made to the Cloud Cost Optimization Cloud Overview page

  • The page has been renamed to Optimization
  • Recommendations are now categorized by a policy set.  A policy set is a way Flexera categorizes similar policies across multiple providers.  For example, the Unused Volumes policy set is a collection of all the Unused Volumes for AWS, Azure, Google, and others. 
  • A new chart to show Rate Reduction recommendations that are by cloud and by policy set: Reserved Instance and Savings Plan
  • A new Chart to show Usage Reduction recommendations by cloud and policy set: Unused Volumes, Unused Instances, Unused Database Services, Unused IP Addresses, Old Snapshots

Hi @cwilhelm 

Is there a way to also show the recommendations within the Billing Center view or is that functionality depreciated?

We do plan to bring the Potential Savings back into the Billing Centers in the future. In the meantime, you can filter your Total Potential Savings by Billing Center in the Optimization Page.
