Oracle License Consulting Services

Whichever Oracle product you are using, our Oracle license consulting services and Tools help you to stay on track in the licensing jungle. The Oracle license rules are complex, diverse, vary between different products and are often not even properly defined or documented. Oracle’s interpretations of these rules usually have little to do with the definitions in your contracts. How to remain in-charge and keep such a situation under controll? The answer is simple: most of the time you simply cannot (at least, not on your own). And unfortunately, Oracle seems to be doing this on purpose.   Our experience since 2002 has shown that almost all Oracle customers are not optimally licensed and therefore unnecessary risks and costs arise. We offer you a range of services and solutions that can give you a better understanding and significantly improve your situation. Whichever Oracle products you use, we organize your license usage and help you to get the most out of your investments or to reduce costs.

With your individual JAVA strategy tailored to your individual needs, you can save a lot on those license fees.

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%.
