M&A Activity and Oracle Licensing Impact

A producer of in-home streaming entertainment and mobile communications went through merger activity.

The company they merged with had been using Oracle products for years, and the merger meant that the company had expanded to use Oracle’s ERP systems as well.

The company that they merged with had a ULA, so the in-home streaming entertainment company needed to decide whether to take on the ULA or certify instead.

The company had little insight into Oracle and licensing usage across the merged organizations, and did not understand the full ramifications of signing a ULA. The company also recognized that they were not licensed to run Oracle products on their preferred environment: VMware.

The company contracted Palisade Compliance to help navigate the negotiation process. Download this case study to find out how Palisade Compliance was able to help the firm with their Oracle challenges and save over $5 million.
