A cloud cost management setup should promote cost awareness while minimizing the disruption of the developer workflow. They are more powerful when they provide insights closer to the point of a decision, rather than simply retrospective.

Customer Data Platform

Customer Data Platforms (CDPs) like Segment allow various apps to pipe events, customer data, and more, to other applications like analytics products, CRMs, email apps, etc. They help maintain the holy promise of digital products and marketing - the single customer view.

Data Warehouse

Data warehouses support various BI and analytics use cases, but this category is in flux with both Databricks and Snowflake moving towards a “Data Lakehouse” framework where you can use the platform the way you would use both the Data Warehouse and Data Lake today.

SMS and Voice API

SMS API providers allow you to send SMS or text messages to consumers, usually with a single HTTP request. SMS API providers partner with network carriers and providers to have a direct and reliable method of sending SMS messages.

Cloud Object Storage

Cloud Object Storage stores anything, from server logs, images, HTML source code, or any “blob” of bytes. Each object contains the data itself, metadata about the data, and a unique global identifier that enables distributed systems and apps to locate the data.
