Architecting an Effective Enterprise Taxonomy is the Key to Cloud Expense Management

By Calero-MDSL on Jan 29, 2020

Cloud Can Provide Much Greater Insights

Telecom carriers offer little ability to customize the data structure of their telecom invoices. For the most part, invoice reports are architected from the carrier’s perspective (i.e., with emphasis on what needs to be paid). This structure is primarily due to regulatory and compliance standards around USOC (Universal Service Ordering Code), tariffs, rates, service types and products and automated Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). As a result, organizations must create workarounds that programmatically correlate the only customer-defined field in the invoice (i.e., the subaccount) with the appropriate cost center owner. They must also augment other information in the invoice feed to ensure the costs are properly allocated in accordance to the current cost center assignments.
