Provides a clear picture of licensable Oracle Database usage
Without a suitable tool, keeping track of current Oracle database installation and usage data is impossible. Besides Oracle’s active auditing activity posing a significant financial risk of inappropriate use, there are additional problems. This risk is vastly increased by the lack of transparency in licensing terms and the possibility of unlimited activation of unlicensed database options, as a single click can multiply the license requirement without warning.
IT teams responsible for Oracle operation will clearly benefit from an independent tool that tracks current usage and licensing requirements according to Oracle’s licensing rules. It reduces the risk of either long-standing or newly activated unlicensed usage and simplifies the identification of savings opportunities.
ORCA (Oracle Compliance Analyzer), developed by IPR-Insights, reads the output of data collection scripts, analyzes the hardware and database data they contain, and calculates software usage and licensing requirements. The results are displayed through a web-based user interface. ORCA shows the current licensing requirements, which would also be demonstrated by an Oracle audit. This way, the organization is not exposed to any unpleasant audit surprise – moreover, based on the results, cost optimization is available in almost all cases.
