Alphas Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Representative: Hajime Hirose, hereinafter referred to as the Company), which develops cloud cost management and optimization tools, will launch the cloud cost visualization tool “Wave PRO” on September 1, 2021. We are pleased to announce the official release.
Our company solves the problem of complicated cloud usage management for companies using public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure (Azure), and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) by centrally managing multiple accounts and billing. We have solved this problem by providing cloud cost financial management (CFM) tools "Ripple" and "Wave" that realize business automation (launched in 2018). On the other hand, it has become clear that cloud resellers and companies that use the cloud are facing challenges in managing and understanding more detailed data and meeting the diversifying needs of end clients.
In public clouds, where pricing varies by vendor and service, costs tend to be complex and management difficult. As a result, many companies are focused on keeping track of costs and are unable to proactively reduce and optimize costs, which has become an issue as IT infrastructure becomes more cloud-based. We create an environment where companies using the cloud can easily work on cost optimization without spending extra time on cost management.
is a SaaS tool that enables cost visualization by managing multiple clouds such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform from a single screen, regardless of each cloud. Our company has traditionally provided the cost visualization tool ``Wave,'' and Wave PRO is an advanced version of that tool.
Features of “Wave PRO”
- More detailed filtering and reporting functions
You can arbitrarily select the period for which you want to view data from the calendar. Display items can be specified at the service level. Flexible support for graph design customization. By determining default settings for each user, you can always check data in a style customized for you.
- Calculate cost predictions and budget settings based on usage records.
Manage usage records on an account-by-account basis, and use machine learning to calculate predicted values based on usage records. You can set budgets based on actual results and forecasts, and track budget management. Many companies are faced with the problem of not only realizing that their budget has exceeded their budget until the invoice arrives. With Wave PRO, you can set daily and monthly budget notifications, so you can instantly understand any spikes in costs.
By using Wave PRO, you can understand data and implement cost countermeasures in near real time. It also enables cost visualization at the level of granularity desired by various users, such as merging multiple accounts or displaying data by tag.
