    Oracle Conference

    Craig Guarente, Palisade Compliance CEO and founder will be presenting at ITAM Review's Oracle Seminar on how to develop an Oracle defense strategy.

    Oracle employs hundreds of people whose goal is to audit their customers. They plan, target, and execute these audits with unsurpassed efficiency.

    Do you have any one person in your company whose sole responsibility is to plan and respond to Oracle audits? Probably not. “Chief Corporate Oracle Audit Defender” is not something you’ll see on a business plan. However, every Oracle customer should have an Oracle audit plan they can use when Oracle sends out that audit letter.

    In this session you will gain insight into the steps needed to defend your company from an Oracle audit. Following these steps will result in both cost avoidance and cost savings.

    Covered topics include:
    What is my Oracle audit risk
    What to do now, before you have the audit letter from Oracle
    What to do when you get the letter
    How to manage the audit process
    How to close out an audit

    All Day

    December is IT Asset Management Awareness Month and on December 13, Craig Guarente, CEO of Palisade Compliance will be presenting a webinar on the IAITAM website on Mergers & Acquisitions: 5 Software Asset Risks.

    Many firms see acquisitions as a way to streamline operations and reduce costs, but corporate restructuring including mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures are riddled with software contract risks. This webinar will reveal 5 risks for Oracle customers involved in the M&A process. Oracle’s complex contracts are designed to limit licensing flexibility, and Oracle sales teams are trained to uncover and exploit any advantage to create leverage and drive up revenue. Not an Oracle customer? Don’t worry – this webinar is relevant to anyone undergoing a corporate restructure, even for non-Oracle users.

    This is only available to non-IAITAM members on December 13. Here is how non-members can view the webinar:

    Cost: $200. Free to government employees and contractors.
    To register: please send an email to info@belarc.com referencing the U.S. Government SAM Seminar.

    Craig Guarente, Palisade Compliance CEO and Founder will be speaking from 9am-10am on 4 Steps To Take Back Control Of Your Oracle Business Relationship. Oracle technology is ubiquitous in the government sector and its costs are usually the number one or number two line item in an organization's IT budget. As Oracle's core technology sales slow down, and they look for more and more revenue, they are pushing their clients harder than ever using a strategy of software audits, complex and vague contracts, and hard charging sales reps to push their customers into spending more money. The results are more money for Oracle, less money in your IT budget, and a trail of dissatisfied customers.

    In this session we will review Oracle's strategy and how they gain leverage on their customers. We will then outline 4 steps you can take right now to anticipate Oracle's moves and turn their tactics into your advantage. Government agencies that follow these 4 Steps will spend less with Oracle, achieve compliance, and take back control of their relationship with Oracle.

    Maintain Your Options and Leverage with Oracle

    Standardizing your infrastructure on Oracle may not be to your advantage. Some companies may lose much of their negotiation leverage with standardization while increasing the challenges of maintaining license compliance. In this session, Oracle expert Craig Guarente, who spent 16 years working for Oracle's contract/auditing team, rising to a global vice president before founding Palisade Compliance, will review real world examples, alternative licensing models, new contract vehicles, and better implementation strategies to help you take back control of your Oracle relationship and ultimately save money on your Oracle licenses.

    Oracle’s Hidden Audit Strategy: Silent But Deadly

    Oracle customers are always at risk of audits. While official Oracle audits are easy to spot, most of Oracle’s audits are intentionally hidden. These hidden audits are buried in contracts, sales programs, support tickets, and other areas. Craig Guarente, Palisade Compliance’s CEO, will give a comprehensive overview of Oracle’s hidden audit strategy and explore six different types of audits and threats. Don’t get caught off guard by Oracle’s silent but deadly audits! Become your company’s superhero: attend this session and learn how to spot threats and take back control of your Oracle relationship.

    Faster Innovation by Controlling Existing Infrastructure Cost

    Digital businesses require agility at scale to be successful. Legacy DBMS providers can have rigid license and business practices that make it difficult to start-up new environments quickly or to shift workloads easily between cloud and on-premises deployments. Reducing dependence on traditional vendors can increase agility while enabling a significant shift in budget available to support innovation.
