LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A new must-read for IT pros explores the obstacles of Oracle Unlimited License Agreements — which to some are smart investments and to others a costly license compliance trap. To navigate the ULA maze, LicenseFortress now offers a new eBook, “The Completely Un-Authorized Oracle ULA Guidebook.”
“Few topics are as controversial in the Oracle community. Devotees say Oracle ULAs help companies save money and maintain an ongoing relationship with Oracle, but detractors say ULAs are a trap with their benefits greatly exaggerated. As it often does, the truth lies somewhere between the two extremes,” said Michael Corey, co-founder of LicenseFortress, the only provider of software license compliance solutions with a 100% financial guarantee.
“The Completely Un-Authorized Oracle ULA Guidebook” walks the IT pro through analyzing licensing options and weighing decisions. The Guidebook is available as an eBook at www.licensefortress.com/oracle-ula-guidebook
This newest edition in the LicenseFortress library of Oracle resources is written by Lena J. Weiner and based on the subject-matter expertise of Corey, a cloud industry influencer, author, and regular columnist for Big Data Quarterly magazine, and Dean Bolton, managing partner of VLSS LLC (a premier Oracle, and VMware consulting firm) an MIT graduate, Oracle developer, database administrator, and evangelist.
“Anyone who touches any part of an Oracle agreement should give this book a read. This includes in-house legal teams who rarely have much Oracle expertise, anyone in procurement, IT directors, CTOs, systems analysts, DBAs, network engineers, MIS directors, and IT coordinators. They should all become acquainted with this volume,” said Bolton.
The Guidebook shows the reader how a properly used ULA can propel projects, spur departmental growth, and help maintain a strong relationship between their organization and Oracle. However, its pages warn of the bad side of ULAs that fail to protect from compliance audits and multi-million-dollar fees for license violations,” said Bolton.
Among the Guidebooks’ tips:
- Despite what Oracle would tell you, most organizations won’t benefit from a long-term ULA, but having a specific purpose for the ULA is the best way to get your organization’s money’s worth.
- If you had problems tracking seats or licenses or otherwise controlling your shop before you got a ULA, the situation is unlikely to get any better with a ULA.
- If an Oracle ULA isn’t serving a specific purpose, it’s probable you aren’t getting everything you could out of the agreement.
