As part of our strategic commitment to helping each customer conduct a detailed evaluation of their current deployed Oracle estate, Oracle License Management Services (LMS) maintains a three-pronged approach to tooling.
Oracle GLAS continues to develop our own in-house tools that will help identify where products are being deployed and used.
Oracle is constantly expanding capabilities within its technology stack, specifically Oracle Enterprise Manager, for capturing usage and installation information. Note: Use of Enterprise Manager may incur additional costs, check the Oracle Price List.
Oracle LMS works with third-party tool vendors to enable them to accurately capture usage data relating to Oracle products.
During an audit process, Oracle LMS can deploy a range of tools to gather usage data on a customer's Oracle estate. Typically, we'll first work collaboratively with them to define the option best-suited to their specific environment, utilizing a range of capabilities and tools that include
Tools from the following vendors have been verified to provide data sets that Oracle will accept whenever accurate measurement data is needed. It's important to note that the scope of the verification process only covers the data collection related to the installation and usage of specific Oracle products. See below.
The verification does not include any other Oracle products or the overall capabilities of the vendor’s solution.
Oracle will accept data from any of these tools as an alternative to installing Oracle measurement tools. Please note that the installation and usage of a tool from a verified vendor does not replace an Oracle License Audit or revoke Oracle's contractual right to perform one. Usage data gathered from these tools will still need to be analyzed by Oracle to assess license needs and provide the customer with a compliance statement.
