New features and enhancements

Issue key Release description
ICP-1729 Capacity Planner now recommends the optimum savings plan per AWS account based on historical usage, assuming that the usage pattern continues. The optimal plan is provided for both like for like and right-sized environments when recommendations are considered.
ICP-1578 Recommendations for the right-sizing and right-buying of AWS instances are now available. A configurable mechanism was added to optimise AWS instances and to show a visual indication of recommendations with alternatives.
ICP-1379 Dedicated reports are now available on AWS costs. These provide visibility into daily costs, long term trends, forecasts, and running instances.
ICP-1250 Enhanced automatic ticket updates. If an open ticket exists for the same entity and metric, then a new ticket will not be raised. Instead, the existing ticket will be updated with any changes in prediction date.
ICP-920 Capacity Planner now provides a new visualisation called timeburst that shows workloads or instances with a time dimension, highlighting areas of inactivity or when machines, instances or containers are not running. It allows you to rearrange the visualisation using the groupings mechanism.
