Recognize, Optimize and Control your Oracle licenses
License Dashboard engage with customers to provide a baseline on their Oracle usage as compared to their license entitlement. All Servers installed and/or running with Oracle software are analysed. We also take into account any virtualisation being used for Server & Storage partitioning. This will provide the customer with a compliance position, where they can then look to remove any unwanted software or potentially then broker a best possible commercial deal with Oracle rather than a forced audit.
The customer will then have everything needed should they be approached by Oracle LMS so that no administration cost or unbudgeted expense is incurred on non-compliant Oracle software use. This process is then updated annually so that a customer stays in control of its Oracle license estate and gets best value from its annual Support Renewal with Oracle.
