The desire to quickly launch new products and services with innovative revenue models is exposing weaknesses in existing processes and functional gaps in legacy enterprise applications. As such, new companies have emerged with agile, cloud-based monetization microservices to bridge these gaps.

We envision a platform capability that we have dubbed AMP or Agile Monetization which is comprised of processes, tools, and human resources and describes the business enablement of monetization. Within AMP, there are 12 areas that are commonly supported by business applications including core elements for agile billing, financials, CPQ, customer service, and e-commerce.
