Case Study: Oracle Java Audit Defense for a Polish Retail Chain with 24,000 Employees

The Challenge

A large Polish retail chain with 24,000 employees faced Oracle’s demands for Java license purchases due to alleged security update downloads, resulting in a significant licensing claim.

The Solution

Redress Compliance employed a comprehensive approach:

  • Java Audit Defense Strategy: Creating a solid defense against Oracle’s audit.
  • Java Audit Negotiations: Engaging in meticulous negotiations to minimize penalties.
  • Java Audit Communications: Formulating a communication strategy to effectively counter Oracle’s assertions.

The Outcome

The retail chain saved substantially by avoiding widespread license purchases and effectively stopped Oracle’s legal actions.


“The expertise Redress Compliance brought to our Oracle Java audit was remarkable. Their strategic approach in negotiating and defending against Oracle’s claims was critical in saving our company from hefty licensing costs. Their guidance was instrumental in navigating this complex situation.” – IT Director, Polish Retail Chain.
