A US manufacturing company in the Midwest, with less than 10,000 employees, faced pressure from Oracle to purchase Java licenses. Oracle claimed they had records of security updates and downloads from the company’s IP/domain.
Redress Compliance provided a multifaceted approach:
- Java Audit Defense Strategy: Developed a robust defense plan.
- Java Audit Negotiations: Engaged in negotiations with Oracle.
- Java Audit Communications: Devised a communication strategy to counter Oracle’s claims.
The organization saved over $4 million over four years by:
- Avoiding the purchase of employee metric licenses.
- Rebuffing Oracle’s legal claims led Oracle to cease their efforts.
“The expertise of Redress Compliance in handling Oracle’s Java license claims was invaluable. Their strategic approach in audit defense and negotiations saved us over $4 million and effectively stopped Oracle’s legal pursuits. Their guidance was instrumental in safeguarding our financial interests and business operations.” – CIO, US Manufacturing Company.
