CMC: Capability to schedule/push periodic mailers

- Today, client needs to login to CMC and need to manually pull usage data from CMC console.
- In an actual production environment, there are different people responsible for administrator, capacity management & billing.
- Access to CMC is desirable mostly by admin teams.
- Because of the current inability of CMC to send/push/schedule mailers with usage/metering data, capacity/billing management teams have dependency on authorized user of CMC to pull report for them, which is inconvenient, time consuming and delaying.
- It is proposed to incorporate in CMC capability to send/push/schedule mailers with usage/metering data.
- Most of the competitive OEM already have scheduling capability as part of their metering tool for pay as you go infrastructure solution, example HPE Greenlake.
