Straight Talk On Oracle Licensing & Licensing Trends

As our organization’s software infrastructure continues to stretch between on-premise, public clouds, and hybrid clouds, keeping it in compliance is more challenging than ever. Plus, getting straight answers from vendors on the proper way to license software isn’t always easy. (Some have even turned software license audits into a revenue generator!) This session will cover software license trends in this cloud-fueled world, the difference between Oracle policy and your contractual obligations, licensing Oracle on a virtualized environment, lessons learned, and steps every organization should take to stay in license compliance and not be the victim of their next software license audit. Many of the lessons learned will apply to all major software vendors.

Speakers: Michael Corey, LicenseFortress & Don Sullivan, VMware
