Oracle License Management –
take place in the driver seat!

Oracle License Management

The aim of every license manager is continuous compliance with minimal costs, coupled with flexibility. This is a challenging goal with regard to Oracle. License managers often find Oracle license conditions confusing and vague. Too many stumbling blocks, such as the ten-day rule, minimum rules or other Oracle license clauses, can very easily lead to under-licensing which can prove very expensive in the case of an Oracle audit (Oracle Audit Review).

How does a Health Check work?

1

Data acquisition

There are three options available:
  • You select your software via the Oracle Review Lite Scripts
  • We help you to select the appropriate independent tools for software selection
  • We work with the data from your SAM solution
Objective:
We develop an Oracle system and license record
to identify potential over- and under-licensing.

Alignment

  • We bring the results of the data evaluation in line with your system data in the OSW (Oracle Server Worksheet).
Objective:
Identify initial inconsistencies with regard to the licenses for your systems.

3

License record

  • After clarifying the individual detailed questions with you and your DBAs, we draw up your license and system record.
Objective:
Identify potential over- and under-licensing.
This transparency enables the optimisation that guides you to Compliance 2.0:

Oracle Total Revenue 2008-2014

Oracle support revenue 2008: US$10.32 billion
Oracle support revenue 2014: US$18.21 billion

 

Oracle support revenue is increasing more than licensing revenue!

Oracle Revenue and Margin

Total revenue 2014: US$38.28 billion
Software support margin: 89%
Support margin proportion in Oracle overall margin 2014: 77%
In comparison: the support margin amounted to ‘only’ 70% in 2011.

 

More than three quarters of Oracle’s overall margin is generated through ‘support’. This is a growing trend. This is your money. We help to ensure that this remains on the credit side of your books.

Oracle partners vs independence

1

Oracle partners

  • Have to report revenue planning to Oracle
  • Do not want to put their business relationship with the provider at risk
  • Never, therefore, push the boundaries in negotiations
  • Profit from kickbacks if you purchase elsewhere following a consultation
  • Have to nominate customers for audits as Oracle LMS partners
  • Have to report all instances of non-compliance immediately to Oracle
  • Do not look into the possibility of used software
  •  

2

Independent consultants

  • Are only committed to your interests
  • Push the boundaries in negotiations based on your requirements
  • Do not profit from commitments or kickbacks
  • Do not transmit data to Oracle
  • Make use of used software to ensure maximum savings for you
  •
