Nicus Software » IT Chargeback & Showback

Nicus designed M-PWR for the most demanding enterprise chargeback/showback requirements. No other product on the market provides process modeling capability like M-PWR. With over 100 built-in functions, open scripting and a dynamic data model, M-PWR enables automation of the most complex financial processes.

Our Vision for the Next Generation of IT Chargeback/Showback

The next generation of IT chargeback/showback applications must expand in scope and functionality. They will face the challenges of emerging virtualization technologies and cloud computing. They will adhere to industry standard practices and methodologies. They will support multiple, concurrent allocation models to enable analysis of data from a service, business, and activity view as well as the traditional resource-based view. They will support performance management and benchmarking. They will support portfolio management, TCO modeling and other analysis. They must play a larger role in supporting cost optimization initiatives … and they can’t stop performing their existing functions either. M-PWR is the next-generation solution for IT Chargeback/Showback.
