Starting today, customers that use AWS Support services (Developer, Business, and Enterprise levels) will now have these expected costs included in their monthly cost forecasts when using AWS Cost Explorer and AWS Budgets. With this enhancement, customers no longer need to manually adjust their expected monthly costs to include premium support costs.

Cost Explorer’s cost forecast capabilities use machine learning to learn each customer’s historical spend patterns, and use that information to forecast expected costs. You can generate your cost and usage forecasts via Cost Explorer’s user interface, or explore your cost and usage data programmatically via the AWS Cost Explorer API.  

To learn more about AWS Cost Explorer capabilities, refer to the AWS Cost Explorer webpage or the Forecasting with Cost Explorer user guide. To get started with AWS Cost Explorer, please refer to this blog post
