How long does an Oracle licensing review take?

An Oracle licensing review takes approx 4-8 weeks to complete depending on the size of your Oracle software estate. The timeline starts from when we recieve the required data to analyze. We take the data and analyze your Oracle software deployments to understand what is active today, but also review historical usage which Oracle will require you to license as well. After the Oracle licensing analysis has been completed, we present the report both in Microsoft Excel as well as en Executive management report containing the results of the engagement and financial risk with our recommendations.

An Oracle SaaS usage review is based upon the number of users that you have but as a general rule it takes approx 4-6 weeks to complete an analysis of all your SaaS usage.

What is your pricing based upon?

We price our Oracle license management services based upon the work effort required from our Oracle licensing consultants. To review Oracle licensing we count the number of Oracle databases that you have deployed. If we are asked to review Oracle middleware we count the number of servers running Oracle Middleware. For Oracle applications pricing is based upon the number of production instances (databases) where you store your application user data. Oracle SaaS usage reviews are based upon the number of users that you have provisioned in your Oracle Cloud Dashboard. As we have experience in delivering hundreds of Oracle license review engagements, based upon that experience we have a good understanding how much effort the engagement will take.
