Flexera said it is acquiring Revulytics, a software usage analytics company. Revulytics will fold into Flexera's application supplier unit, which helps to help software companies monetize.
The supplier side of Flexera also bought Palamidia and has three primary products focused on monetization via the Revulytics purchase, software composition analysis, and installation tools.
Flexera also has a buy-side part of the business that focuses on asset management and cloud optimization. The buyer-focused part of Flexera acquired RightScale and RISC Networks.
- Flexera buys RISC Networks to bolster cloud migration efforts
- Cloud alters pecking order among enterprise technology vendors
- Enterprise software vendors mix and match monetization models: What happens when subscription, usage and licensing converge?
Revulytics has a set of tools that track licensing and enforcement as well as actual product usage. The data provided by Revulytics helps software companies ensure compliance as well as better price wars.
Flexera said it will integrate Revulytics with its offerings for compliance intelligence as well as usage analytics.
