Quitting Unlimited Licensing Agreements is the way out of expensive Oracle fees, expert says

Share post:

A Big Red audit expert claims that the speediest method for saving money on Oracle licenses is to get rid of its Unlimited Licensing Agreements (ULA).

Although ULA agreements are widely regarded as a straightforward method for a large, global organization to support business agility and value creation. It also claims to provide a volume discount on Oracle licenses, but it is now widely regarded as the most effective way to save money with Oracle. This is due to the fact that as long as a user continues to enter the next ULA agreement, the user will continue to pay more and more and more.

The ULA is also said to conceal an inadequate knowledge of the user’s Oracle license position, as well as where it could negotiate better deals or move away from Oracle software.

Craig Guarente, founder and CEO of software licensing advisor Palisade Compliance says, “The biggest mistake is inertia. That is, users not understanding if they really need a ULA. I think most ULAs are signed because people don’t have the information, they need to make a more informed decision.”
