Oracle licensing is complex and we get it! Let us guide you along the path to success.
Gadsby Technologies in-depth understanding of Oracle’s past and current perpetual and subscription agreements enables us to make valuable and strategic recommendations. Oracle license definitions change constantly and managing what you own and how it applies to your current deployments can be daunting. We advise on everything from Oracle contract terms and pricing, baseline assessments, audit support, legal entity changes (M&A), annual support costs, license policies and architecture optimization. Our team combines Oracle license knowledge with technical expertise to help you optimize your licenses.
Thinking about a new ULA or a ULA certification vs. extending or maybe a PULA? Oracle's current enterprise agreement flavor is called a ULA, where a company is entitled to an unlimited usage right of a set list of programs for a set term. Performing an assessment in order to optimize this agreement and review compliance is essential well in advance of certification. If you have no visibility into what has been deployed and no analysis on the ROI of the contract, this will surely lead to incorrect reporting and large contract extensions with Oracle in the driver’s seat.
Baseline Analysis + Asset Management
A global view of an organizations Oracle license deployments is a necessity in order to maximize the investment and reduce the risk of exposure.

Our goal is to optimize what you own while maintaining compliance. This reduces the risk of exposure and gives clients a full understanding of the associated costs and a return on their investment in Oracle software.
