one idea we have is to add recommendations, after we have the GitHub App integration we can do a lot more fun stuff like open recommendation PRs for you

ah interesting , the other Idea is to focus on "twitter bots" How do we prove to C level that this is all accurate

that the right metrics for resources are being calculated

that is a long term statement which will need some transparency for none tech people to understand via dashboard , and to see what the infracost is comparing too

yeah, for the cost estimates ppl can compare it with the cloud cost calcs. For actuals, it’ll be compared to the bill - we’re prototyping ideas around that too

Imagine Bill manager has a bill in front of them , they might want to get close to seeing 1-1 relationship between infracost and the physical / virtual bill
