Oracle is unquestionably one of the leading licensors of enterprise software in the US. However, Oracle also has one of the most complex and arduous systems for licensing its software, creating a potential source of financial risk from a compliance perspective.   

  • Are you confident that your Oracle agreements include the most favorable terms and conditions?
  • Do you know your compliance position with Oracle?
  • Do you know all of the current and alternative licensing options for the products you use?

If your response to any of these questions is “no,” then Siwel can help. Siwel provides Software License Position and Contract Advisory Services to help you avoid unnecessary costs and get the most out of your Oracle software investment.

Software License Position (Internal Audit)

Siwel provides Software License Position (SLP) services that help organizations conduct self-audits to maximize their license utilization and understand their compliance position with Oracle. 

Our team of Oracle licensing experts will review your contract terms and conditions to establish an entitlements baseline. After that, we’ll analyze usage and establish your Oracle compliance position. This will identify areas of risk and allow us to propose recommendations and identify opportunities to maximize your Oracle software license utilization.
