Palisade Compliance Announces Cloud Advisory Services
Oracle Continues to Pressure Customers; Palisade Can Step in.

Mendham, NJ, October 26, 2016 — Palisade Compliance announced today their new cloud advisory services.

Whether you have licensed Oracle software for years, or you are completely new to Oracle, signing up for Oracle’s cloud services creates financial, contractual, and compliance risks and obligations. Oracle is famous for their tough sales tactics and high locked in costs. That reputation holds true for their cloud offerings as well. Palisade’s cloud advisory services enables their clients to reduce the risks of moving to Oracle’s cloud. Palisade has created a unique blend technology and former Oracle contracting and compliance expertise that empowers their clients to avoid the Oracle contract and compliance traps while obtaining optimized pricing and terms.“As Oracle shifts its business from on premise licensing to cloud services, you can expect intense pressure from Oracle on your business. Existing Oracle customers are most at risk for contractual gotchas that try to lock in cloud revenue the way Oracle has locked in support/maintenance revenue. We’ve seen Oracle use audits to push clients into the Oracle cloud. Our services are built to keep our clients in control and empower them to move into Oracle’s cloud only if and when they choose, and at pricing that fits their budget,” said Craig Guarente, Palisade Compliance CEO.

Palisade Compliance cloud services include:

Contract Negotiation – achieve optimal terms and pricing when acquiring Oracle cloud services
Conversion Support – learn how to migrate from traditional on-premise licenses to Oracle “cloud credits” or “cloud services”
Support Reduction – analyze opportunities to reduce Oracle’s annual support maintenance bill
Compliance Assurance – ensure compliance in both cloud and on-premise environments before facing substantial audit penalties in both environments

Palisade Compliance helps customers take back control of their Oracle relationship. For more information on Palisade’s cloud advisory services, visit
