Oracle Audit Support

Do you have a looming Oracle GLAS (LMS) audit? Or are you currently halfway through one? The DSP team of Oracle licensing specialists will guide you through your Oracle License audit, giving you the best available options and advice. As one of only three accredited Oracle licensing partners, we provide independent, up-to-date, and reliable information based on the latest Oracle licensing policies.

Audit Risk Assessment

Oracle audits can be a painful experience if your estate isn't compliant. Therefore, we provide an audit risk assessment with a top-level review of your existing licensing environment. We analyse where the risks, density and maturity of your Oracle licensing estate are and create a report to outline concerns and problem areas within the estate. As a result, this report will help to mitigate the risk if you were to be audited by Oracle.

SAM Services

We carry out an internal review of your software to ensure you are compliant with your Oracle licensing requirements. Organisations find it difficult to manage their software licenses... DSP creates a plan that simplifies the licensing estate which consequently, allows your IT department to be able to budget for the next financial year and ensures that the organisation is up to date with licenses and not at risk of legal liabilities.

Oracle Licensing in Public Cloud

Public cloud offerings such as Oracle Cloud, Azure or AWS could affect your Oracle licensing. Companies are increasingly seeing Oracle Licensing as a main 'trigger' to migrate to the cloud. Our specialists can help you understand your licensing options in the cloud.

Workshops: Oracle Licensing Training

We offer unique training focused on Oracle licensing. It is available to everyone, no matter the level of ability. This is an excellent opportunity to gain sought-after knowledge from our experts which can then be used to organise and control your Oracle licensing.

Oracle Licensing Purchasing Support

Capitalise on our 25-year relationship with Oracle and utilise our expertise when buying Oracle licenses. We'll ensure you remain compliant and cost-efficient. You can expect independent support through the entire licensing journey. 

Oracle Licensing mistakes DSP can help you avoid

  • Use of Virtualisation software and Hardware Partitioning: Is your partitioning techniques, either at a Hardware level or at a Hypervisor, recognised by Oracle as a valid way of pinning resources?
  • Use of Enterprise Edition Options or Management Packs: If these are in use, are they correctly licensed, do they match the database licenses for the server in question?
  • Database Edition: Use of Enterprise Edition is key as this mandates that all cores in servers count towards licensing, whereas Standard Editions just count occupied sockets.
  • Matching support levels: Oracle insist under their policies and terms that you must match support levels to be compliant. You cannot have some licenses in active support and licenses in the same product set where it has lapsed or been cancelled.
  • Know your definitions of users: Oracle counts both human and non-human users. It is licensed on specifically named individuals or non-human interfaces e.g. 3 different shifts with 10 different named employees on each, would require 30 licenses.
