Cloud Cost Analysis Application
Aimed to provide cloud usage, cost reports, and recommendations to reduce cost. The app also allows enforcement of policies, or to take action on resources in order to optimize cost, based on usage and requirements.
The Cloud Cost Analysis Application was created to address the increase in cloud-based development, and the obvious need to control and manage cloud usage and cost.
It became important for engineering teams be aware of their cloud usage, the associated cost, and then implementing best practices to keep the cost under control. Lastly, it was also important to mandate specific cost control measures when needed.
The main users for this application are cloud administrators and business managers.
Information Architecture, Wireframes and Mockups
Before wireframing began, I developed a visualization of our project’s information architecture in collaboration with the SD-WAN CloudOps engineering Team. The diagram served as the foundation for the low fidelity wireframes, and ultimately the hi-fi mockup using Sketch and InVision.
The application was designed using Cisco Cohesion Design System to help create seamless and cohesive end-to-end experiences across the SD-WAN application suite.
