About the talk
Straight Talk on Oracle Licensing and Licensing Trends
As software infrastructure is stretched between on premise, public clouds, and hybrid clouds, keeping software in compliance is a significant challenge. Sorting through all the FUD and getting straight answers from vendors on the proper way to license software in this complicated world is not easy. Some vendors have turned to Software License Audits as an easy way to generate additional revenues. In this presentation, we will discuss current Software License trends, the difference between Oracle policy and your contractual obligations, Licensing Oracle on a virtualized environment and licensing best practices. Lesson learned will apply to all major software vendors.
