Oracle ULA Audit
Organizations that face an Oracle License Review are at particular risk.
According to the Campaign for Clear Licensing study, 88 percent of organizations find it hard to understand and respond to Oracle License Review requests. In addition, survey respondents do not
feel empowered to make their own licensing decisions.
May 31 was the last day of Oracle’s fiscal year. As a result, many companies have ULAs (unlimited license agreements) with Oracle that expired and must now be certified. Certification of a ULA is highest risk point in the ULA lifecycle and often results in customers facing multimillion dollar true up costs. That’s right, after 2 or 3 years of not counting your Oracle installations, now is the time when you have to go through the audit process and tell Oracle how many licenses you are using. This process can cost you millions of dollars if not properly managed.
Oracle ULA license non-compliance
You will be audited at the end of your ULA. Oracle’s customer audit team, LMS, even has a brochure online touting their “free” ula certification services. Please keep in mind that Oracle does not refer to these services as audits. In fact, they say that “LMS ULA Services are neither audits nor reviews, but opportunities for customers and Oracle to work together.”
