Considering an Oracle Unlimited License Agreement? (ULA)
Inform your Oracle ULA buying decision with Version 1 Control™
Oracle Unlimited License Agreements
Whilst an Oracle Unlimited License Agreement can give you the opportunity to save money on Oracle licenses, it may not be the best way forward for every business.
Generally, Oracle Unlimited License Agreements are most effective for large companies in a period of organic growth, who are currently buying licenses ad hoc. If you are about to enter a period of mergers, acquisitions or divestments, this can be a very complex situation to manage under a ULA.
Another use case relates to securing a ULA to mitigate against significant known or suspected non-compliance, but again, you should be sure that a ULA is the appropriate and optimised solution for your needs.
Signing up for a ULA can be a complicated process. You need to work out what your level of usage is likely to be over a period of several years. You also need to be sure that you can manage and monitor this throughout the unlimited period of the contract AND subsequently. It can be a time consuming and challenging process especially if you are not familiar with all things Oracle.
