Most Oracle customers think of their contracts as simple purchasing documents, a formality that allows them to use Oracle software. Oracle knows this, and optimized its contract process based on the strengths and weaknesses of their customers’ procurement and negotiating processes. With every consolidation, new purchase, migration, or contract change, there is an opportunity for Oracle to reverse what customers previously negotiated. Also, Oracle has made more than 90 acquisitions in the last 10 years, providing substantial opportunity for Oracle to improve the legacy terms and conditions in its favour. As a result, most Oracle customers are surprised by what their contracts actually contain. This is why any Oracle negotiation, cost-reduction exercise or new technology deployment must start with what is allowed by the customer contract. Oracle often overlooks this, insisting their business practices trump these contracts.

Oracle Licensing Advices: Let our Oracle licensing expertise benefit your organization

Reduce your Oracle licensing costs and stay on the right side of compliance: The goal for all companies is to “right-size” Oracle across the enterprise and gain back control.

The Holy Grail for most Oracle-based companies today is to optimise their Oracle licenses and get genuine value for money throughout their organisation.

But that’s easier said than done. Oracle’s license definition and rules change on the back of acquisitions and mergers, as do their licensing agreements, business practices and price lists. Managing your licensing (let alone optimising it) can be a time consuming task and it’s little wonder so many organisations pay over the odds, or fall foul of Oracle compliance, often resulting in costly audits and corrections. It’s a complicated process, but the following three tips will set you on the right path to Oracle License: Optimisation – and help you ‘right size’ Oracle throughout your organisation.

Oracle licensing agreement - The Audit at the End of Your Oracle ULA Contract: Oracle License Inventory and Oracle ULA validation

Oracle licensing agreement - The Audit at the End of Your Oracle ULA Contract: Oracle License Inventory and Oracle ULA validation

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.

Better management of your Oracle licensing budget

On the surface the ULA sounds like a great deal.  If managed correctly, this licensing vehicle can be tremendously advantageous.   However, many clients fall into the complacency trap.  They are sold a ULA contract on the basis of “not having to count” and “use as much as you can.”  Then at the end of the term they are ill prepared to have to actually manage their license usage.  Many times they just extend the ULA and spend millions of dollars for the freedom of not counting for another 2 or 3 years.  This type of extension is just delaying the pain and increasing your liabilities down the road. Eventually you have to count.
