Aurubis AG is the world’s largest copper recycler, with production sites in Europe and the United States and an extensive service and sales system for copper products in Europe, Asia, and North America. The company’s core business is the production of marketable copper cathodes from copper concentrates, copper scrap, and copper recycling raw materials. Each year, it produces approximately a million tons of copper cathodes, which are processed into continuous cast-wire rod, shapes, rolled products, and special wire made of copper and copper alloys. Precious metals and a number of other products, such as sulfuric acid and iron silicate, round out the company’s product portfolio.
“Aurubis has subsidiaries in 22 countries across three continents. Given the geographical spread, the high number of licenses involved and the depth of specific information needed, gathering this data manually or with a tool not specifically engineered for this purpose commonly leads to business interruptions and mistakes,” said Dr. Jörg Meyer, executive director IT services, Aurubis AG. “We consider Oracle License Management Services to be the most qualified expert to conduct a fully automated analysis of our current license usage and requirements, identify discrepancies, and deliver detailed recommendations on how to optimize our Oracle licensing estate and effectively manage Oracle licenses in the future.”
