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.
Verified Oracle LMS/GLAS Solution
The Certero for Oracle product is verified by Oracle LMS/GLAS for Oracle Database, Database Options & Management Packs and Oracle Fusion Middleware.
This means 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, so you do not have to download and run a separate set of scripts. It also means you can have constant visibility of your Oracle estate, giving you clarity and understanding before you submit any audit data.
Oracle licensing is notoriously complex, and so there is some sceptism and myths as to whether a tool can truly achieve Oracle license compliance. Want to know the truth? We set fact from fiction in our latest blog post
