Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

We continue to see organizations move to the cloud without properly understanding how they will track ongoing spend. We previously blipped run cost as architecture fitness function, and Infracost is a tool that aims to make these cloud cost trade-offs visible in Terraform pull requests. It's open-source software and available for macOS, Linux, Windows and Docker and supports pricing for AWS, GCP and Microsoft Azure out of the box. It also provides a public API that can be queried for current cost data. We remain excited by its potential, especially when it comes to gaining better cost visibility in the IDE.

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

One often-cited advantage of moving to the cloud is transparency around infrastructure spend. In our experience, this is often not the case. Teams don't always think about the decisions they make around infrastructure in terms of financial cost which is why we previously blipped about run cost as architecture fitness function. We're intrigued by the release of a new tool called Infracost which aims to make cost trade-offs visible in Terraform pull requests. It's open-source software and available for macOS, Linux, Windows and Docker and supports pricing for AWS, GCP and Microsoft Azure out of the box. It also provides a public API that can be queried for current cost data. Our teams are excited by its potential, especially when it comes to gaining better cost visibility in the IDE.
