Providing a single bill of IT

You have read how we can satisfy the desire to control your hybrid or multi-cloud costs, but how do we provide the single bill of IT?

Extract

Exivity incorporates a flexible field-configurable extractor component enabling integration with virtually any end-point. As long as network connectivity is available, consumption, lookup and other data can be extracted for subsequent processing. As a result, extractors for custom data sources can be created with little effort.

Transform

Exivity ships with a powerful ETL engine which empowers you to normalise, enrich and apply business logic to collected data. This enables the automation of complex billing rules resulting in streamlined workflows.

However with the right tools, knowledge and techniques it may be surprising what can be accomplished with data that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to report against.
