Keep costs under control
One of the reasons cloud is so attractive is its scalability and flexibility, allowing administrators to easily handle increased demand without the burden of adding physical servers and other CapEx investments. brightfin allows you to gain cost transparency and compare usage against your contracts, helping to keep costs under control by improving accountability and avoid usage surprises.
Make cloud efficient
brightfin makes it easy to leverage cloud expense management and reduce spend by knowing which resources are inactive or underused.

Enable cloud as a serviceManage multiple providers for multiple clients within a single portal in ServiceNow, or another ITSM, with domain separation.
Cloud’s IT overlap
Many physical services from the fixed telecom area are migrating to the cloud as digital offerings (consider a WAN circuit), creating a need to be able to track those shifts and their impact on budgets. Using brightfin to manage IT cloud expenses allows admins to know the exact date of switch over and what the previous costs were. It also provides the ability to track the new expense, usage, and store the contract data in one place.
Future-proof IT investments
With a unified expense and asset management solution to simplify complex processes like allocation, brightfin prepares organizations for investments where cloud, telecom, and mobile are all deployed in the same project.
Cloud has lowered the barrier to entry for access to powerful computing and storage resources that previously were only available to the most well-resourced companies. Additionally, once a company is a customer of a public cloud provider, it’s easy to add new services to an account, but with that comes the potential for spend that falls out of compliance, especially as usage scales up.
Track, allocate, and audit for accuracy
Using brightfin to manage cloud expenses and assets, while integrating with an ITSM solution, levels up cloud governance by applying (or modifying) your existing business rules when new cloud inventory appears to ensure it’s tracked, allocated, and audited for accuracy.
Improve decision making and gain full transparency into cloud spend as well as inventory with the ability to drill down to specific details. Our cloud monitoring tool empowers your organization to view the analytics that matter most to you.

brightfin has out-of-the-box integrations with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, bringing all of your major cloud accounts into one IT expense platform. With all of your accounts in one place, our analytics tools make it easy to compare usage, costs, and charges across vendors and drill down for more detailed granularity to break each down by internal user group.
AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure
Connect brightfin to your cloud partners to retrieve charges and usage from your account, store the processed data in a single place, and use this data for more effective analyses and optimization of your cloud expenses.
Our Kubernetes integration allows you to receive and manage Kubernetes usage data reports separately from the data reports on AWS usage. Monitor and plan your individual usage of and charges for Kubernetes pods, receive more precise analysis of your expenses, allocate them accurately, and better understand the drivers of cloud costs.
