Blended and Unblended Rates
Cloud provider resellers and cloud service brokers depend on detailed billing files. These files are difficult to parse due to their complexity and size often requiring resellers, CSBs and large cloud provider consumers to invest heavily in building in-house applications just to process cloud provider invoices. Cloudaware not only supports "giant" billing files but also provides the advanced analytics, customization and invoicing based on the data derived from detailed billing files.
