The IT environment comprised approximately 1500 servers in a number of datacenters. The server environment was multi-platform and involved clusters and virtualization. These factors have a significant implication for a company’s software license requirement, especially in the case of Oracle.
The goals of this project were to:
• Improve the customer’s negotiation position by ensuring they had full understanding of their software deployment and license requirements
• Reconfigure hardware to support high availability
• Ensure that Options were deployed correctly, under the terms of the existing license
• Maximize the value of the existing Oracle ULA
• Maintain compliance
The project delivered optimization opportunities of over £8,000,000 ($12,700,000)
