Cloud is everywhere. Whether it’s on-premise, in data centers or via public cloud offerings: more and more Enterprise organizations and Service Providers are either using hybrid cloud solutions or selling them. They also tend to pick many different types of cloud providers, depending on the intended use case. Maybe you run your production environment on premise in VMware, your dev in Azure, test in AWS and your acceptance infrastructure runs on OpenStack. Maybe you sell Office365, Azure CSP from the Public Cloud and IaaS from you On-Premise Data Center. That's all great, but how do you track usage and spending? And how do you compile accurate chargeback/showback reports? Or how do you invoice your resellers and customers correctly? At Exivity we know how difficult this can be.
Over the past several years, we’ve seen many companies struggle with getting these insights and invoicing processes aligned. Many companies are still juggling around complex Excel sheets to compile their monthly billing or chargeback reports. Creating those reports takes a huge amount of time, and the manual nature of the process can be considered a huge risk from both data quality and auditability perspectives. Not to mention: how do you obtain all those different metrics? And most of them use different file formats and formatting; how to process them? Luckily there’s Exivity. Get in contact with us now and we will tell you all about it.
