The ETL alternative
ETL, which stands for extract, transform and load, are data integration tools. Since ETL tools are older, heavyweight technologies, with high governance around them, employing them for usage data will considerably reduce your business agility.
DigitalRoute Usage Engine, on the other hand, is specifically built to process usage data and deliver clean records to operational, business and finance systems, in real time and at scale.Book a demo
Usage billing challenges
ETLs were specifically designed for bulk data transfer scenarios, such as disaster recovery, database backups and data warehousing. You could adapt them for usage billing, but at a high cost.
Usage-based services bring you closer to your customers, but only if you can understand exactly how they are using your services.
When charging customers based on usage, you need a flexible system for usage data processing, so you can continue to innovate your services.
Here’s the bottom line
You can customize ETL tools for usage-based billing, but this will increase your costs and reduce business agility. DigitalRoute Usage Engine solves this with a purpose-built solution designed for real-time usage data processing.
