How to Spot and Avoid an Oracle Audit Before it Happens – White Paper
Oracle audits are time consuming and costly. Oracle is known to use their aggressive License Management Services (LMS) audit team to target their customers for audits, creating all types of licensing uncertainty, and then hand the audit over to Oracle sales who will close the deal with a purchase (including unwanted cloud credits). Oracle will also use LMS audits to push you into a long-term Unlimited License Agreement (ULA), raising your support costs, and locking you into a technology for years to come, even though you may want to go in a different direction.
Oracle audits come in all shapes and sizes. We’ve identified several ways Oracle audits their clients through different channels. For details on all types of Oracle audits, request our “hidden audits” white paper. For the purposes of this whitepaper, however, we will focus on the official Oracle audit.
The good news is Oracle audits are not inevitable. Just because you are using Oracle software and services does not mean you are guaranteed to be audited by this aggressive giant. There are measures you can deploy to greatly reduce your risk of being audited. In this white paper we review the steps that are in your control, so you can focus on your core business, and not be taken off course by Oracle’s audit machine.
