Useful with other clouds
The Apptio service can be used as is with Azure, Rackspace and other clouds for cost tracking and management. But some of the fine-grained analysis and charting capabilities require some cloud-specific info to be included in the analysis engine. Azure is the next target, with Rackspace further down the road, I believe Gupta indicated.
