How to monitor and reduce AWS Spend, a talk by Jack Sweeney, Solutions Engineer, Omni

Talk Description

High cloud bills are never a welcome surprise. Even though all the data to effectively monitor your spend exists, getting it into an operational state in one usable place never seems to be a high enough priority to build what you may need. In this session, we’ll walk through how to go from raw AWS cost data to a monitoring dashboard you can use to be proactive about those costs before your next bill comes in. We’ll cover a step-by-step overview, key tricks, and potential pitfalls to help you along the way. We’ll also wrap up with some KPIs for your new dashboard and how to include it in your workflow to ensure you can prevent unnecessary costs.
