  • An outdoor furniture manufacturer company followed Palisade’s suggestions and rearchitected their Oracle environment into a configuration more in line with Oracle’s policies. The company also converted some Oracle licensing, again at Palisade’s direction, and remediated what potential non-compliance risk remained. As a result of Palisade’s efforts, the liability was completely eliminated and the company proceeded with the acquisition.

    Outdoor Furniture Manufacturer

  • Thanks to Palisade’s audit, advisory, and negotiation services, a multinational financial services company successfully negotiated a new Oracle contract that aligns with their financial goals and technology roadmap. In addition to the new contract, Palisade provided the company with insight into their licensing and usage that was unavailable before. This knowledge will enable the company to maintain their leverage with Oracle as the two companies continue to work with each other.

    Multinational Financial Services Company

  • At the end of the engagement, the Midwest manufacturer was able to confidently proceed with third-party support and realize substantial cost savings. Just as importantly, the manufacturer feels prepared for the possibility of an audit, if that’s what the future holds.
