Our Strategic Priority: Helping Customers Minimize Risk

As companies evolve the way they deploy and use enterprise technologies, software asset management becomes increasingly important.The growing popularity of cloud, virtualization, and outsourcing makes the challenge of maintaining an accurate view of the deployed license estate even more complex. Without an accurate and up-to-date view of actual license usage versus entitlement, customers can expose themselves to significant risk:

Without an accurate and up-to-date view of actual license usage versus entitlement, customers can expose themselves to significant risk:

  • Strategic risk—leading to a shortfall in capabilities and business performance
  • Investment risk—not realizing the full value of the contract
  • Financial risk—including unbudgeted liabilities and/or overspend
  • Operational risk—lack of control over IT asset allocation and availability
  • Legal risk—breach of contractual entitlements and corporate governance legislation
 

"Oracle License Management Services provided deep expertise and objective advice. We expanded our knowledge of Oracle licensing, optimized our Oracle investment, and ensured compliance, thereby, reducing legal and operational risks."
