Companies tend to forget that compliance is the foundation for working with Oracle and it is also the base for creating cost efficiencies. It’s understandable as IT folks are more focused on how Oracle’s app will solve a problem for them. If nothing else keep in mind the following:
1. Never assume a license usage right. In fact, assume that you don’t have the right to use the license and verify.
Whether you’re using an automated SAM or an Oracle compliance package – such as ManageSoft’s Enterprise Compliance Manager – the ultimate goal should be compliance. It can’t be stressed enough, if you aren’t in compliance with Oracle’s licensing rules, then all else is faulty. Compliance inoculates an organization from unnecessary and unwanted fines during a vendor audit.
