LIVE WEBINAR: 5 Critical Tips for Planning the Certification and Exit of your Oracle ULA

Tuesday, March 10 at 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET

Trying to exit or considering the renewal of your Oracle Unlimited License Agreement (ULA)? With proper planning and advice, you can help control the certification process, not Oracle. 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.

In this 30-minute webcast you’ll learn about the five ways you can free your budget from a ULA and liberate funds for innovation. Craig covers topics that include:

  • How renewing a ULA can be costly and detrimental to your IT strategy
  • When to plan your exit strategy to avoid lock-in and free up budget
  • Why Oracle’s Certification Questionnaire is complex and potentially risky
  • The traps of virtualization in a ULA
  • How to help take control of the certification process

Join Craig Guarente, CEO of Palisade Compliance and former Oracle GVP responsible for License Management Services (Customer Audits) along with Jeremy Sayler of Rimini Street to get guidance on ULA certification plus reduce your support costs, free up resources and focus on your new IT initiatives.


LIVE WEBINAR: Understanding Oracle ULA Contracts in Real-Time

Thursday, March 12 at 8:00am PT / 11:00am ET

Oracle’s Unlimited License Agreements (ULA) are Oracle’s preferred way to license their software. But this buffet model of “all you can eat software” can be challenging and complicated to manage, especially at the end of a contract term.

Join this live webinar as Palisade founder and CEO reviews ULA contracts in real-time. Craig will show some of Oracle’s actual contracts so that you know exactly what to look for in the fine print. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of:

• How to maximize your ULA deployments
• Compliance issues to be aware of
• How to certify at the end of your ULA
• How to negotiate with Oracle on a new ULA

During this interactive webinar, you will have a chance you ask Craig any ULA questions you have. Please submit your question ahead of time when you register.

Register even if you can’t attend live and we will email you a link to the recording afterwards.


LIVE WEBINAR: Oracle’s End of Year Tax

Tuesday, April 14 at 8:00am PT / 11:00am ET
Most Americans are currently dreading this time of year because it’s tax time. Tax returns need to be submitted to the federal government and companies and individuals either have to pay the government a fee or will receive a refund if they’re lucky.

Did you know that Oracle’s fiscal year end (May 31) is very similar to the US tax season? Oracle may try to investigate your current usage of their products with an audit so they can slap you with an end of year fee. Or, they may do everything possible to have you sign a new deal before year-end. Oracle’s entire year often comes down to the last two weeks in May.

Before you get bombarded with Oracle sales reps, join this live webinar with Palisade founder and CEO Craig Guarente and learn how to take control of negotiating with Oracle’s sales teams.

You’ll walk away with a better understanding of:
• Important dates and deadlines to Oracle’s fiscal year
• How to negotiate with Oracle during year-end
• Reasons to not sign a deal by year-end
• Stealth audit tactics to look out for

During this interactive webinar, you will have a chance you ask Craig any year-end questions you have. Please submit your question ahead of time when you register.

Register even if you can’t attend live and we will email you a link to the recording afterwards.
