  • Effective Licence Positions (ELP) Reporting for Oracle
    • Validated Compliance Report (Audit Preparation)
    A standalone service designed to provide support for a one- time event such as a contract renewal or audit. Useful for clients who do not have a clear picture of their compliance position and where empirical proof of purchase data is to be used. The ELP will highlight where client data is insufficient to determine compliance. The results can be used to re-baseline a full service.
    • Basic Compliance Report (Internal Assessment)
    Similar to the Validated Compliance Report but based on trusted data provided by the client which has not been proven against proof of purchase.

  • Measurement & Usage Technologies for Oracle
    • Discovery
    This service ensures that existing Discovery tools are able to track Oracle product usage. Deployment of authorised scripts from Oracle or manual templates may be used where data collection is impossible to automate.
    • Licence Reconciliation Engine service
    This service provides a licence repository to hold, manage and reconcile licensing contract, entitlement and demand data from which compliance reports are generated. This is available as a hosted or an on premise deployment, using either ITAMS’ technology or the client’s own tools.

  • Licence Operations Process Design for Oracle
    The definition and implementation of required changes relating to processes core to licence management for Oracle (e.g. request management, deployment, recovery, chargeback/cost allocation, audit response and contract renewal preparation).

  • Governance
    To ensure that licensing for Oracle is effectively managed across the organisation, ITAMS will provide assistance to form and charter a Software Advisory Group (SAG) to take responsibility for policy and risk management of Oracle (and other software vendor) licensing.
    A Licensing Compliance Service may also be put in place to ensure that all minimum practices specified in the policies are being undertaken (per the RACI model) and with escalation capability to the SAG.

Oracle_BAU

ITAMS’ aim is to help transition clients to a collaborative Business As Usual (BAU) licence management service for Oracle quickly and efficiently whilst ensuring existing capabilities and resources marry seamlessly into long term management efforts.

The BAU service can be implemented as a standalone service or can include some of the service components from the transition/project services phase.
