LIVE WEBINAR: Thursday, September 20 at 11AM EDT / 16:00 GMT – 5 Hidden Traps That Are Keeping You in Your Oracle ULA

Oracle Unlimited License Agreements are not evil, despite popular belief. Whether they are good or bad for your business is based entirely on how you negotiate the terms and conditions throughout the entire lifecycle of the contract. If you enter into a ULA with the right terms, manage it properly and exit via certification with the maximum licenses, then your ULA can be a valuable arrangement for your company. However, if you leave anything to chance, you can inadvertently impact your long-term IT strategy, including the ability to move around based on your budget, resources, and roadmap.

Don’t get locked into a ULA that doesn’t work for you. Tune into this 45-minute webcast and learn about the five ways an Oracle ULA can trap your team, hurt your budget and stifle innovation.

Join Craig Guarente, CEO of Palisade Compliance and former Oracle GVP responsible for License Management Services (Customer Audits) along with Dan Ashton of Rimini Street to get guidance and learn how you can not only avoid ULA lock-in but reduce your support costs, free up resources and focus on your new IT initiatives.

LIVE WEBINAR: Thursday, October 4th at 11AM EDT / 16:00 GMT – How To Win Your Oracle Negotiation

The first thing to understand when negotiating with Oracle is that there is a right way and a wrong way to work with Oracle. This is true whether you are working through a new license agreement, migrating to the cloud, in the midst of a ULA, or even if you are being audited and working through a compliance issue.  If you understand Oracle,  and how to maximize your leverage, you will be in a far better position than a company that finds itself struggling to control their Oracle usage and sales teams.

Join our webinar to hear CEO Craig Guarente, EMEA Director Fredrik Filipsson and Senior Director, Delivery & Advisory Allison Adams discuss our best practices in negotiating with Oracle, plus:

  • Learn best practices to negotiate with Oracle. There is more to it than “wait until the end of the quarter.”
  • Strategic and tactical negotiation advice to obtain the best possible deal
  • How to negotiate Oracle cloud contracts.
  • How custom terms and conditions can save you money
  • What to do with older contracts
  • How to create a strategy to reduce your annual support renewal

LIVE WEBINAR: Thursday, November 29th at 11AM EDT / 16:00 GMT – Demystifying Oracle ULAs

An Unlimited License Agreement (ULA) from Oracle gives you the right to use an unlimited number of licenses for a limited set of specific Oracle products over a limited time in a limited geography to perform limited tasks. Bottom line: It’s not all that unlimited. Unfortunately, many companies find that out the hard way.

Join our webinar to hear CEO Craig Guarente  as we explain all the pitfalls within your Oracle ULA, including:

  • The fine print when negotiating, exiting or certifying a ULA agreement
  • The stealth audit that is not in your contract
  • The differences between Oracle’s ULA and PULA
