If you’re scratching your head and trying to catch up with all the re:Invent launch announcements from the AWS Cloud Financial Management team, let me walk you through how your FinOps experience may be improved for better with the latest capabilities that were just released last week at AWS re:Invent 2023. I’ve also included recordings of these launch announcements, so you can watch these at your own pace.
Today, we announced the general availability of Data Exports, a new AWS Billing and Cost Management feature that enables you to create exports of your billing and cost management data using SQL column selections and row filters. As part of AWS Data Exports, you can now also deploy a Cost and Usage Dashboard powered by Amazon QuickSight directly from the AWS Billing and Cost Management console. The Cost and Usage Dashboard uses a summary view of the AWS Cost and Usage Report 2.0 (CUR 2.0) and provides pre-built visuals to facilitate interactive analysis and sharing of cost insights with a broader stakeholder group who may not have access to AWS console.
By using CUDOS and the CID Framework, Cvent provides its centralized governance teams with greater visibility across all organizational spend in a simple, cost-effective manner. More importantly, that same visibility is available to budget managers and engineers, which decentralizes the ownership of the budget details. Cvent’s mindset and processes are shifting from reactive spend investigation to proactive cost optimization during planning and deployment, which fosters a high degree of financial predictability expected from investors and shareholders.
In some cases, users can be hindered with access to all available cost data for an organization. With Row Level Security (RLS), you can restrict the data a user can see to a subset of the business most relevant to them. In this blog, we’re going to walk you through how Telenor implemented RLS on its Multi-Payer Cost Dashboards, and how you can, too.
Now, with the KPI Dashboard, customers can track cost optimization across their organization and visualize realized savings. In this blog, we’ll walk through the various ways you can use the data in your KPI dashboard.

AWS cloud usage data is a critical component in the IT Financial Management process for AWS customers. As organizations grow in cloud maturity, the cloud usage data may become complex as usage incurs from distributed teams and businesses. Financial and Technology leaders need access to trends, signals, insights, and cost deviations to quickly understand and analyze the cloud usage. The AWS Cost and Usage Reports (CUR) provide comprehensive data about your AWS costs, including information related to product, pricing, and usage. By including the Resource IDs and choosing hourly time granularity, CUR allows you to analyze your costs in greater detail and accuracy. You can download the CUR reports from the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) console, query the reports using Amazon Athena or load the reports into Amazon Redshift or visualize in Amazon QuickSight.
