This report indicates that the need to increase business agility, along with cost control measures is playing a key role in strengthening the cloud billing market. Though the adoption of these solutions is gradual due to concerns of loss of data and third party dependence, these solutions are expected to experience a tremendous growth, owing to the evolution of cloud and growing demand for automation of billing processes as a result of pricing intricacies.

Cloud billing solutions merge convergent billing solutions with cloud technology to deliver value to the customers through the billing systems. Cloud billing solutions help in reducing the large upfront costs as the real-time, multi-tenant billing systems are maintained by the vendor. The billing solutions for cloud services help in avoiding under and over-charging by supporting sophisticated rating, dynamic price plans and granular billing by extending support for variable billable units.
