Certero for Oracle

Optimize your Oracle Database, Middleware & E-Business Suite applications with Certero’s dedicated Oracle discovery & license management solution

Your Oracle investment doesn’t stop at Databases, neither should your SAM and compliance tools.

Certero for Oracle addresses two major technology governance concerns: it helps you both respond to/defend against and manage Oracle compliance audits and optimize your global Oracle spend across Databases, Middleware and E-Business Suite environments.

Unlike most Oracle license compliance alternatives, Certero for Oracle covers your entire Oracle estate, including software installed on Windows, Linux and Unix devices. It provides coverage of application server Middleware products (WebLogic Server, SOA Suite) and has inbuilt functionality to apply vendor rules and policies automatically.

An Oracle LMS/GLAS Verified Solution

The Certero for Oracle product is verified by Oracle License Management Services to provide information that Oracle will accept whenever accurate measurement data is required. This verified status has been achieved by Certero in all three categories:

  • Oracle Database & Database Options
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware
  • Oracle Java SE

Being a verified 3rd party toolset means that Oracle’s audit team will accept data from Certero for Oracle during an official audit, as an alternative to installing Oracle License Management measurement tools.

Certero for Oracle gives you constant clarity and understanding over your Oracle estate, enabling proactive management of Oracle license compliance, costs and strategy. It also means you’re fully informed during the audit processes, with full visibility of data being submitted.
