Oracle License Review

Oracle Licence Review

Optimise for Better RoI

Whether you dread the unpleasant outcome from an Oracle License Audit or not, there is always the financial threat from the possible failure of fully optimising your Oracle license estate. This threat can be attributed to general reasons like choosing the wrong hardware platform, slip-ups in virtualisation, not considering licensable environments, enabling unlicensed installations, and many more.

Why Wait Until the Audit ?

Having a fully optimised license estate and a “ready” compliance report in advance of a contractual Oracle audit will make your organisation a much less attractive target for audit. It will shield you against any uncertain revenue leakage and will save your company from potential financial burden caused due to the license deficit and operational hassles arising out of an unexpected Oracle license audit.

The risk can be double-edged !

The perils of financial risk from lack of Oracle license optimisation is double-edged, meaning it can arise from both over-usage or under-utilisation of the Oracle entitlements. By performing an analysis of your Oracle entitlements, deployment practices and utilization, we evaluate your Oracle asset position, identify areas of risk, and provide expert recommendations.

Testimonial

Having worked with Sibaji on our licensing profile I would recommend working with him for his expertise in what is a difficult and complex area to understand. The work Sibaji completed has given me a good understanding of our current Oracle license profile. He comes highly recommended.
