In this issue: Introducing GEAR 1 - Oracle Licensing Demand Assessment Service, Audits, Data Quality, Opensource, Freeware & Trialware blogs, new training dates & more!


Oracle Licensing Demand Assessment Service


In audit and contract renewal situations Oracle regularly requires the deployment of their 'LMS Review Lite scripts' for Oracle Database servers.

We’ve just released our GEAR 1 service to help translate the Review Lite Script outputs into easy to read reports. The service is low cost, highly secure and completely confidential.


The process is fast, efficient and produces higher quality data by removing the risk of human error. It cuts the cost and time associated with manual analysis.


The resulting report produced is easy to understand, allowing you to take any necessary corrective actions before submission to Oracle where contract terms allow this.


It empowers you in an Oracle audit or renewal process by giving you complete confidence in the level of demand you have and what you are providing to Oracle.

One of the many key process areas for the Software Asset Manager is Software Acquisition.

A common misconception by employees, is that Opensource, Freeware and Trialware can be freely downloaded (where user has admin rights) into the corporate environment as and when an employee sees fit, as it does not require a cost to the company to do so.

So there’s no issue right?
