Oracle’s Evolving Audit Tactics


The rise and fall of Oracle LMS: from database, to Java, to cloud

For years, Oracle had a unified and centralized approach to auditing their customers. Oracle’s License Management Services (LMS) organization was the only group at Oracle charged with performing license audits.

Oracle has all but abandoned their monolithic approach to customer audits. What was once a singular approach to auditing is now distributed in different groups around the world.

In this paper we will review Oracle’s decentralized approach to auditing and how that creates more risk for you even when you are not being audited.
