Oracle ULA's main benefit is that an organization has to pay a single up-front fee to receive as many licenses as it wants for a specified set of Oracle products over a fixed timeframe.
At the end of that timeframe, Oracle will grant perpetual licenses for all of its software that has been deployed, assuming its use has been properly documented - a process known as certification.
Many companies simply opt to negotiate a new ULA, since certifying requires engaging in a full software asset inventory, which can be complicated, time consuming and costly. However, without doing that inventory, it is possible – and even likely – that you will be overpaying.
In this webinar we'll cover the ULA definition and its general conditions, as well as different scenarios that you can find your organization in - and what to do in such situations.
