Upcoming Events

May 22-24 – IAITAM ACE Conference – San Diego, CA

We will be at the ACE Conference again this year, and Palisade co-founder and COO Stephen Sopko will be speaking on Is Your Oracle SAM Tool a Double-Edged Sword? on Thursday, May 23 at 11:15am in the Grand Ballroom 2.

Session Overview: Oracle makes their contracts, policies, and compliance practices difficult to understand and almost impossible to follow. This complexity puts Oracle’s customers at a high risk of non-compliance findings and financial penalties. Many SAM practitioners rely on third party tools for counting Oracle licenses to better understand their compliance position. SAM tools can provide information on Oracle usage. However, they do not provide a holistic view of your entire Oracle estate. Attend this session with Palisade’s co-founder and COO Stephen Sopko and walk away with knowledge of how to leverage tools to maximize compliance, optimize licenses, and reduce your risks.

June 11 at 2pm EDT – LIVE WEBINAR – Oracle on AWS: Cutting Through Complexities of Licensing & Support

Are you contemplating moving your Oracle legacy applications to the cloud? Do you have concerns about bringing your licenses with you or fear the loss of Oracle support? One of the most frequent questions that we are asked by customers is whether their Oracle license and support will remain valid when running on Amazon Web Services (“AWS”). The short answer is ‘yes’.

This live and interactive webinar will be hosted by Bill Saltys, Senior Vice President, Alliances from Apps Associates and Craig Guarente, CEO and founder at Palisade Compliance (and former Vice President at Oracle) and Johnathan Cornell, Solutions Architect, AWS.

You’ll learn:

  • What motivates vendors to plant a seed of doubt around cloud licensing
  • The misconceptions and misinformation about Oracle licensing and support in a 3rd party cloud
  • How to ensure that applications are deployed according to the specifications agreed upon with Oracle
  • What to look for in your contracts before moving to the cloud

There is a growing number of customers that have made the move in order to realize the benefits inherent with on demand, utility-based cloud as well as AWS maturity and breadth of services. Let Apps Associates and Palisade Compliance help you decide if the move is right for you.
