Embodiments presented herein provide a mechanism for optimizing the cost of a cloud platform. A cognitive cloud platform is trained using performance counters to process unstructured data in order to identify underutilized cloud resources. The platform may also generate policies to shut down during idle times. Present embodiments may utilize techniques such as robotic process automation (RPA), straight through processing (STP), and/or natural language processing (NLP).
