65% of our enterprise customers have received at least one vendor audit letter in the past 12 months.

Help is at Hand.

Enterprise application vendors do not design their license policy to be easily understood.  Software users are often unaware of vendor rules according to contractual obligations. Vendors can conduct a license audit and non-compliance can result in unexpected costs and stress for customers.

If you have received an Oracle License Audit letter, or if you would like to learn more about taking control, quantifying risk, and identifying and optimising opportunities – our experts are here to help you.

Our Approach to Mitigating the Cost and Risk of Audits

A Diagnosis or Health Check is a strategic review of your license estate. It identifies the risks of noncompliance and opportunities related to the management of your software assets.
Discovery, Baseline and Optimisation
Based on the Diagnosis, we may perform a detailed Discovery and Baseline to determine compliance. We will highlight areas of risk and propose optimisation and remediation.
If you need to buy licenses or re-negotiate with your vendor, we can help you create a plan. This can minimise unexpected costs and give you more benefits, creating a fit-for-future license estate.
