Your snapshot of Software Asset Management for Oracle
Everything you do with Oracle is big. Huge IT architecture, large data centers, a lot of virtualization, and many database options.
The bigger you are, the bigger your risk of license misuse and financial penalties. Do you know what Oracle software is really covered by your contracts? Do you know how many licenses are already deployed under your Unlimited License Agreement (ULA)?
The Rapid Vendor Analysis service is your entry-level path to Oracle Software Asset Management. Our experts give a one-time, risk-free analysis of your installations and usage details. Now there are no SAM surprises.

Be prepared for Oracle audits
Are you worried about receiving an audit letter? We can help!
Oracle will pressure you with a tight timeframe for getting your data to them for review. But you need to understand that data — and any software usage problems it may show — before you share it with Oracle.
You need quick results with no time or budget for a full SAM implementation. That’s where Rapid Vendor Analysis comes in. This review of your Oracle licenses can be done in a couple of weeks, and will likely fit into your regular IT budget.

Find out what your ULA really covers
Your company might think that all of their Oracle software is covered by the Unlimited License Agreement. But a ULA typically covers unlimited usage for a limited number of products.
If you use software that is not covered by your ULA, you are out of license compliance and in financial risk. When you decide to leave the ULA and declare your usage in the exit certification, you might get a nasty surprise that costs you several millions. Get a Rapid Analysis before this happens to evaluate whether to keep or leave your ULA.
What will you do with your Oracle savings? Whether you have a SAM program in place or not, we can help you save costs.
