Our SWOT analysis shows you the strengths, possible risks and the optimisation potential of your Oracle license management.
This gives you an idea whether you have already considered all relevant aspects from a licensing point of view, or whether it is advisable to take a closer look.
Oracle turned JAVA SE into to a commercial product in 2019, which requires users of the formerly free-to-use platform to pay royalties now.
With your individual JAVA strategy tailored to your individual needs, you can save a lot on those license fees. Not doing anything will most likely create a bad hit on the TCO for Java-based solution in your company.
We support you by asking the right questions at the right time and providing the best individual answers with the information needed.
This is an all-inclusive package offer for Oracle customers who's Oracle product footprint is still quite small.
- An Oracle license training for the employees of your choice from an experienced Oracle license expert
- A detailed license balance for your Oracle databases
- Important background information that will make it easier (and less risky) for you to work with Oracle
- Answers to all your Oracle license questions
- A Oracle usage and licensing roadmap following your input and needs
Such a workshop is always worth its money, since one tiny mistake in the usage or the infrastructure Oracle is running on usually means that you may have to cash-out a few hundred thousands or more to regain licensing compliance.
If you have already signed an Unlimited License Agreement (ULA), are pending an extension of the ULA or if you are thinking of switching to this contract model, we can help you with the decision-making process and save you a lot of money with useful information.
Have you received an “Audit Letter” from Oracle?
Don't panic, first get someone on board who knows the audit process well and whom you trust! This is the most important tip and it will save you the most stress and sweat - not to mention the non-budgeted costs if Oracle serves you unexpected results.
How do you proceed? What are your rights in an audit? Which people are necessary? Which communication rules should be followed? These and many other questions ultimately decide on the outcome of the audit?
Is your IT strategy based on a virtual environment?
As is well known, this is always a difficult situation for Oracle licensing, as most of the common technologies for your data center and client virtualization can catapult the licensing requirements for Oracle products to critical heights.
Oracle has only half-heartedly taken note of the criticism of these valuation practices. However, Oracle created the option of only having to license parts of the virtual infrastructure with a “VLAN Segregation Approval”.
What homework and preparations you have to do, what consequences this will have on your future infrastructure planning and what structures have proven themselves will be shown and prepared for you in this service.
We come to your company and train your staff so that where the errors occur, there is a detailed and clear picture of which licenses exist in your company and which Oracle product functionalities can be used with them.
How does Oracle licensing work? What do you have to pay attention to? What types of contracts are there and how do they differ?
This proactive step can drastically reduce the surprises in an Oracle audit. And your employees look forward to learning something new about their subject. The content of the training is based on your existing licenses and the groups of people.
There are two main focus groups: On the one hand, the IT staff who are operationally responsible for the Oracle products or the infrastructure.
On the other hand, the management staff who have to procure, negotiate and administer the licenses.
Our experience has shown that building knowledge in the right places reduces the error rate by over 50%.
