Licensing Oracle: The Reference Manual For Managing Oracle License Compliance & Procuring Oracle Software, Hardware, Cloud & Services provides a comprehensive view of all aspects of Oracle to reduce costs, manage license compliance and become more efficient in negotiations.
“CIOs, CFOs & Procurement Chiefs work under constant pressure to reduce technology costs. Efficient management of Oracle software & services can go a long way in helping enterprises achieve this goal. Customers can achieve this by reducing Oracle costs or replacing other costs by optimizing Oracle deployments”, says Sheshagiri. “I wrote this book to demystify Oracle licensing and help customers understand Oracle’s cultural moorings that make it a formidable vendor during commercial negotiations.”
Sheshagiri goes on to say “Oracle’s license audits can be a nightmare for those who do not understand the nuances of compliance challenges of different products. A reference manual to get a comprehensive view of these issues has been a felt need of Oracle’s customers”
The book also provides a broad insight into the history of Oracle, the company’s pioneering development of the RDBMS & technological innovations that have shaped the data management technologies, the wars for survival between leading RDBMS players, 50 key contributors to its growth, and Oracle’s development as a now credible cloud services provider. The knowledge of all these aspects helps customers make better procurement decisions.
“I have seen the dangers of using traditional Oracle partners’ consulting to help mitigate license risks.”, Sheshagiri says. “Today’s buyers and software asset managers research products & licensing methods regularly, and this book helps them to get a quick grasp of the different aspects of licensing as well learning how to research the web better for appropriate information”
