Oracle Java risk reduction program

Oracle Java license compliance works a little differently from other ways of complying with Oracle. Java is embedded or bundled with so many Oracle and non-Oracle applications. The best thing you can do is understand your risk and take action to mitigate that risk before Oracle forces you into another expensive long-term contract.

Palisade Compliance’s 4-step program will help take an accurate accounting of your Oracle Java landscape and help to remediate any potential compliance problems.

  • Discovery
  • Analysis
  • Client remediation
  • Palisade Compliance advisory

Your team will receive a layout of your Java landscape, where you have already licensed Oracle Java, and where a non-Oracle Java solution might work, without exposing you to Oracle’s aggressive sales teams.
