Buttonwood Cloud Analytics is a cloud analytical solution designed to help you manage and report on your organisations cloud consumption and spend, in near real time. Armed with powerful consumption metrics and data visualisation, you will be able to make informed decisions to ensure you are in complete control of your cloud expenditure.

Buttonwood Cloud Analytics (BCA) is unlike any other cloud analytical solutions. It is available through a secure portal that aggregates your billing data from all your AWS, Azure and VMware accounts, and provides you with detailed consumption reports. As well as regularly updating users with their actual cloud expenditure, Buttonwood Cloud Analytics also provides historic invoices and historic analytics for comparison.

Managing a cloud infrastructure can be challenging as it requires you to transition to a pay-as-you-go consumption based model. It is easy to lose control of cloud expenditure with this consumption based model as cloud invoices do not tell about the “why” behind your cloud costs. Often cloud consumption can also be difficult to control given the number of different cloud providers organisations use.

Buttonwood Cloud Analytics simplifies your cloud bill processing through multi-cloud reporting and built in dashboards to help you analyse your consumption and expenditure data.
