Selected for an Oracle Licence Audit – What now?

Posted by Daniela Jimenez

Oracle Corporation, like most software vendors, grants the right to use its products through software licence agreements or sublicence agreements. Unlicensed use of Oracle's software may constitute a breach, violation of intellectual property rights laws and in many cases significant penalties from the Oracle Licence Audit Team.

So, what happens when your company is been selected for an Oracle Licences audit? Firstly, there is no need to panic if your company understands and ensures that they are utilizing their licences in accordance with Oracle’s terms and conditions. In fact, in some cases during an audit, some customers find out they are paying for licences that they do not really need.

The reality can be different for other Oracle customers, who can struggle to remain in compliance with Oracle policies. There are many contributing factors which can lead to this situation; growth of the business, increased workforce through recruitment, acquisitions or mergers that result in increased usage volumes, misinterpretation or lack of understanding of Oracle's licensing policies.
