- Design alerts for cost anomalies and for reaching pre-defined budget thresholds, work on forecasting based on historical data and given business context;

- Empower and help teams to do analytics of their own budget spending efficiency and help them to make data-driven business decisions, modernize their architecture and infrastructure, etc.;
