Billing for SaaS, PaaS, IaaS within a Single Platform

Customer

Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT”) is the worldwide leader in software, services, and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.

Business Needs

Towards the end of the past decade, Microsoft was transitioning to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model with Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Online Services. Traditionally sold through their partner channel as shrink-wrapped software, Microsoft did not want to disintermediate or remove partners from the supply chain. In additional to calculating billing to the end user, to keep the channel intact, Microsoft would also need to calculate compensation and make payments to partners. With customers worldwide Microsoft was seeking a solution to support billing across multiple countries, multiple languages and multiple currencies.
