The question of whether an Oracle ULA actually has an overall advantage has been controversial. The benefits of ULA are cost savings, comfort and simplicity. Agreements work best for companies that expect growth through normal operations rather than through mergers and acquisitions. Oracle stores can group a number of Oracle products under one agreement and one invoice, instead of a mix of complex licensing agreements for each product. Now that you`re doing well, we assume you`ve already entered or considered an ULA for your organization. The first thing to keep in mind is that the contractual document by which you get unlimited disposal rights is actually an order document. This order document refers at any time to a specific license agreement called Oracle Master Agreement (OMA). The license agreement itself defines the terms and conditions for any license, support, hardware and/or cloud orders that you may execute in violation of this Agreement. For example, consider the rights to monitor the programs in your ULA order document. It is therefore important to maintain and manage the ULA order document and associated licensing agreement in order to obtain a complete and accurate picture of the rights and obligations you have agreed to.
I get questions from my network on Oracle ULAs. If your ULA needs to be renewed next year, start planning. This article and roadmap explain why you shouldn`t wait and what steps to take. Good luck! #oracle #sam #itam #licensing #ULA #softwareassetmanagement While the ULA has made the “all you can eat” deal, it is a fact that it does not cover all situations. This means that you are easily led to a false sense of security and that you can use Oracle software in a way that is not within your agreement. This inevitably results in an unexpected invoice at the end of your ULA or, worse, a violation of the terms of the provision, which means that you are obliged to certify earlier than expected. This can only be mitigated by careful control of Oracle`s succession and future use. The restrictions of an ULA are subject to the terms of the agreement. Some ULA clauses relate to products and uses, while others refer to your organization or the concept of ULA. When your ULA expires, you have two options: you can certify and report your use on Oracle, or you can extend your ULA for a new period of three years (or more). If, on the other hand, you already have an Oracle ULA, but you don`t have full transparency and control over your software resources, you should have the tools and skills to do so.
In this way, you can decide whether keeping in an ULA agreement provides a satisfactory king. If not, you can prepare for an explanation at the end of the term ULA, because you know what you are likely to pay. You will also have the intelligence to defend yourself in an exam situation if you need it. We also offer free 2-hour online training on Oracle ULAs and other Enterprise-style agreements.

If you have used directly outside your territory, you have a problem that will cost your business money if it finds out. The ultimate goal is to make sure that the fees you pay are a good return on the products you use.
