Application Manager, a capability of AWS Systems Manager, announces a new feature for customers to report and visualize the cost of their applications through integration with AWS Cost Explorer. Application Manager is a central hub on AWS to create, view and operate applications from a single console. With Application Manager, customers can discover and manage their applications across multiple AWS services like AWS CloudFormation, AWS Launch Wizard, AWS Service Catalog App Registry, AWS Resource Groups, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), and Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS). Using this feature, IT professionals can now view the cost of their applications and application components within the Application Manager console.

AWS Cost Explorer allows customers to visualize, understand, and manage their application costs and usage over time. With this feature, customers who have Cost Explorer enabled can now see the overview of the costs associated with the application and application components within the Application Manager console. Customers can also click through to the Cost Explorer console to further analyze the cost data for their application. Customers who are new to cost reporting can click the “Go to Billing console” button and setup Cost Explorer to enable cost reporting for their account.

This new feature is available in all AWS Regions where Systems Manager is offered (excluding the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions). For information about Application Manager, see our documentation. To learn more about AWS Systems Manager, visit our product page.
