I want to get a better understanding of how Reserved Instances are applied to the usage in my organization. What are some ways I can do that?

You can use Cost Explorer Reserved Instance views to get a sense of how many instance-hours are being covered by your Reserved Instances.

You might also consider using EC2 usage and Reserved Instance utilization reports. Line items near the bottom of the report explain Reserved Instance utilization in an aggregated format (n hours purchased; n hours used). To configure your account for this report, see Getting Set Up for Usage Reports.
