Accounting and Billing Challenges in Large Scale Emerging Cloud Technologies

Piyush Harsh, Oleksii Serhiienko

Abstract

Billing models which can easily adapt with emerging market opportunities is essential in long term survival of any business. Accounting and billing is also one of the few processes which has wide impact on legal and regulatory compliance, revenue lines as well as customer retention models of all businesses. In the era of rapid technology shifts, with emergence of Fog and Edge deployment models, and marriage of IoT and cloud which promises smart-everything everywhere, it is paramount to understand what new challenges must be addressed within any billing framework. In this paper we list several emerging challenges which should be overcome in architecting any future-ready billing platform. We also present briefly an analysis of few technologies which could be used in prototyping such a solution. We present our proof of concept experiment along with initial results highlighting the feasibility of our proposed architecture towards a scalable billing framework for massively distributed IoT applications at the edge.
