- We reviewed multiple ULAs and extensions across 15 client business units for a Fortune 100 telecommunications business, then proactively audited more than 6,000 cores of database and related options. This effective effort identified more than $13 million in under-deployment and more than $450 million in potential noncompliance. As a result, this client completed remediation efforts to avoid more than $30 million in additional license and support fees, making a profound impact on its business planning going forward.Fortune 100 Telecommunications
- An international transportation company engaged us to document their deployment well in advance of ULA certification because they planned to change support vendors. We documented $10 million in under-deployment of ULA-licensed software, enabling substantial company expansion without any additional purchases. This company certified its ULA in a strong position, resulting in substantial discount offers in other areas.International Transport Company
