Case Study: Maximizing Oracle ULA Value for a Leading American Financial Institution

Background

A leading American financial institution sought to maximize the value of its Oracle Unlimited License Agreement (ULA). Operating a robust database environment across on-premise, cloud, and virtual platforms, they needed expert guidance to leverage their Oracle ULA fully.

Challenge

While the institution had no license compliance issues, they were not fully utilizing its Oracle ULA. They needed a comprehensive strategy to maximize their Oracle ULA and realize its full potential.

Solution

Redress Compliance was engaged in providing a strategic solution:

  1. Oracle License Scripts: Redress utilized Oracle license scripts to gain a clear understanding of the institution’s licensing position. This helped identify areas where the Oracle ULA was underutilized. This confirmed there were no license compliance risks.
  2. Oracle ULA Maximization Plan: Redress developed a detailed plan to maximize the value of the current Oracle ULA. This strategy revealed that the institution could realize an additional value of $600 million from its Oracle ULA.
  3. Implementation of Maximization Plan: Redress implemented the maximization plan, ensuring that the institution fully leveraged its Oracle ULA.
  4. Oracle ULA Documentation: Redress completed all required documentation to validate the maximization process.
  5. Communication Advice: Redress provided answers and communication advice to ensure the institution was well-equipped to handle any queries or issues during the maximization process.

Outcome

The financial institution maximized the value of its Oracle ULA, realizing an additional value of $600 million. This was achieved without any license compliance issues, demonstrating the effectiveness of Redress Compliance’s maximization strategy. The customer then followed Redress Compliance ULA certification strategy and managed to certify the Oracle ULA within 2 months after ULA end date.
