00:14 Use Oracle Soft Partitioning policy as your guiding principle to maximize your ULA
00:32 Try to match database enterprise edition licenses with options/management pack to minimize the risk of future non-compliance.
00:56 Fredrik says that if you have done a good job managing your ULA, you should NEVER renew the same ULA with the same products.
01:12 Follow the contract when you should submit ULA certification documents, not earlier unless it is in your interest.
01:32 Fredrik says that Oracle are usually quiet flexible about the dates when you need to submit data to Oracle.
