Managing an Oracle Unlimited License Agreement (ULA)
Clarity and control over your Oracle ULA with Version 1 Control™
Oracle Unlimited License Agreements
You have signed on the bottom line and are now the proud owner of an Oracle Unlimited License Agreement. Do you breathe a sigh of relief and carry on with your day job, or do you stop and think about how you are going to consider managing an Oracle ULA moving forward, both during and after the unlimited period. You know the correct answer.
The right approach is to establish a fit for purpose License Management Strategy immediately on commencement of the ULA, implemented throughout the lifetime of the agreement and beyond i.e. at least 4 years. The approach should be designed to centralise and control the deployment of software assets and therefore:
- Optimise your return on investment, accomplished by planning and controlling deployment to ensure planned product take-up
- Mitigate risk – ‘unlimited’ means unlimited quantities of a defined list of products
- Be in a position of knowledge at the end of the ULA to enable effective future negotiations with Oracle
- Understand Cloud scenarios, restrictions, opportunities and necessary operations
