Certero Achieves Oracle Fusion Middleware Verification
WARRINGTON UK, DECEMBER 2021 – Certero, an innovator in unified IT Hardware, Software, SaaS and Cloud Asset Management solutions and member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN), today announced that they have been verified as a third-party tool vendor for Oracle Fusion Middleware.
This means that the Certero for Oracle solution – part of the unified Certero platform that also covers cloud, SaaS and IT hardware everywhere in one single solution – is now one of a handful of formally verified third-party solutions to cover Oracle Fusion Middleware as well as Oracle Database and Oracle Database Options by Oracle Global Licensing and Advisory Services (GLAS).
Once a solution has been Oracle GLAS-verified, Oracle will accept data from these tools as an alternative to installing Oracle measurement tools. However, the installation and usage of a tool from a verified vendor does not replace an Oracle License Audit or revoke Oracle’s contractual right to perform one. Usage data gathered from these tools still needs to be analyzed by Oracle to assess license needs and provide the customer with a compliance statement.
Hazel Hopes, Management Consultant and Oracle licensing expert explains how this can help Certero customers: “As an existing verified third-party tool vendor for Oracle Database, we are delighted to add another verification for Oracle Fusion Middleware. This verification process will help provide customers with enhanced and sustained visibility over their Oracle Fusion Middleware solutions and provide them with the power to mitigate risks before they can become a problem”.
Hazel adds, “We use Certero for Oracle to deliver our SAM services for Oracle, so our Oracle licensing experts can make sure you’re informed, controlling your spend and not just at a single point-in-time – these solutions are now live, sustained views of exactly what’s going on. That means you have control over your own data, you have evidence of changes and an understanding of the licensing impact. It’s a great proposition for how IT operates and with today’s rate of change, nothing else is acceptable”.
