We give you confidence when entering new contracts, renewing existing agreements and cancelling or replacing older ones.
Oracle contracts and agreements can be complex. Both the important definitions and what you are entitled to are not always clear. It is also not clear what the impact will be on your business if there are changes in the corporate structure.
It gets more complicated where special agreements like Unlimited License Agreements (ULA) and Pool of Funds are involved.
We can help you get an understanding of your Oracle contracts so you can negotiate more advantageous agreements for your business, identify support agreements that can be cancelled and maximise the value of any substitutions or updated agreements.
Decisions around the future of your Oracle license contracts can have significant impact on your options and flexibility over time. We deal with 100s of Oracle contracts every year and have seen various tactics employed by Oracle that may seem on the face of it to be a great deal, but as circumstances change they may not offer the value they once did. If you are contemplating any significant restructure of your Oracle contracts, we recommend you get expert advice. So many times we arrive too late when the real costs of certain agreements become clear.
The following are examples of events which we would recommend seeking advice.
