Oracle licensing can be complex: licensing rule changes, a mix of older and newer metrics, the bundling and unbundling of products, and more. Any of these can easily cause your organization to fall out of software compliance. Not only does such non-compliance translate into unforeseen expenditures, it can also consume the time and efforts of some of your valuable resources. And it may also result in reputational damage.
Whether you are on-premise, cloud-based, a hybrid of the two – or even considering a move to the cloud – it would be important to understand that the environment exists in a defensible software license state.
In an effort to help you quickly identify potential problem areas we have assembled a list of top-level questions that touch upon the most common situations that cause clients to be out of software license compliance. It is not intended to delve deeply into your environment or identify all possible software compliance risks, but rather to illustrate where specific concerns for the most common software compliance issues might lie within your environment. These concerns are a function of Oracle’s evolving interpretations of deployments within its customers’ environments.
This Oracle licensing analysis does not represent Oracle Corporation’s official opinion and conclusion regarding software license usage and compliance. Official findings are the sole prerogative of Oracle Corporation’s License Management Services (“LMS”) group.
The answers are weighted based on the potential cost that we typically find that such situations portray as licensing shortfalls.
Your answers will be kept strictly confidential and not shared with any other organization. The results will be delivered to you by email.
