As of November 15, 2016 V.i. Labs and Trackerbird Software Analytics, a V.i. Labs company, are now Revulytics.
Revulytics was founded in 2006 as an application security solutions provider to address the challenges of software piracy. Working with leading software vendors around the world, Revulytics introduced CodeArmor Intelligence in 2008 to detect, identify, and report on the unpaid use of their software, giving them a new strategy to generate incremental revenue by converting unlicensed users into paying customers. Since 2010, Revulytics customers’ compliance programs have generated more than $1.4 billion in revenue using the company’s turnkey solutions and services.
With the acquisition of Trackerbird Software Analytics in 2016, Revulytics expanded its offerings to provide a wider range of software producers with valuable insight into actual product usage after installation giving product management, engineering and marketing the intelligence to make data-driven decisions.
Revulytics gives any software development organization deep and actionable insight into who and how their software products are being used, and the out-of-box analytics that enable them to grow incremental revenue, convert and retain customers, and make decisions about licensing and cloud transformation strategies.
Its anti-piracy and software license compliance products are designed to track software use, protect valuable intellectual property found in high-value and business-critical software applications (including products used for Electronic Design Automation (EDA), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), and Computer-Aided Design (CAD)) and recover revenue lost to the use of unlicensed software and piracy.

Revulytics Usage Intelligence
Revulytic Usage Intelligence (formerly Trackerbird Software Analytics) gives any software development organization valuable insight into product adoption, usage, and computing environments.
