How to Read the Benchmark Report


The CloudFix Benchmark report provides users with insights regarding their AWS expenditure. One of the core features of this report is the 'Deviation' column, which visually indicates the divergence of an organization's spend compared to the global average spending. Understanding this deviation can provide actionable insights to better manage and optimize your AWS costs.
