Presentation: Oracle Licensing – What you should consider before installing an Oracle product and what you should review if you already have

When installing and/or configuring Oracle, careful consideration should be given to licensing. Items like edition, license type, hardware, virtualization, hard partitioning, core factor and options can significantly impact the cost to your business. Existing licenses and configurations tend to change over time and this can lead to a gap in coverage which can lead to discrepancies for your next Oracle license review.

The discussion will cover recent experiences with the Oracle License Management Services (LMS) and the license review process and what can be done to prepare for the review. A regularly scheduled internal review process will also be discussed with the end goal of reconciling actual usage versus entitlement.
