Oracle audits should be easy to spot. Oracle notifies you of an audit, your executive receives the notice, and the two companies engage in that back and forth that is an Oracle license audit. Easy, right? Well, as with everything Oracle, that's not exactly how it works. In fact, Oracle has created several paths to audit your use of software without calling it an audit. These secret audits are even more risky than the official audits and can cause even more economic harm to your IT budget. In a secret audit you may not have your guard up as it can appear very cordial. You are most certainly not expecting Oracle to hit you with a big non-compliance finding.
Join Craig Guarente, CEO of Palisade Compliance and former Global Vice President of Oracle Contracts, Business Practices, and Compliance as we analyze how Oracle conducts their non-audit audits, what you can do to identify these events, and how to protect yourself should you see Oracle moving in. Every Oracle customer, no matter the size, can benefit from this session. Don't be forced to buy more Oracle, enter an unwanted ULA, or move to the Oracle cloud because of an audit, especially one you didn't know was happening.
