Oracle’s Lock-in Policies Are Wasting Your Money
Remend Spend Analysis exposes the effect of Oracle’s lock-in policies, product bundling and unbundling, inflationary adjustments, acquisition strategy, etc. Over time, what you are spending on Oracle becomes frustratingly disconnected from the value received.
Remend Delivers Value by Executing the Following Steps
Attain a record of all licensing and the associated support pricing at line item detail.
Assess discounting by reverse-engineering support pricing into modern price lists.
Categorize costs into products, metrics, support identifiers (CSIs), and long-term total cost.
Report on savings opportunities independent of license compliance.
When combined with Remend’s other services, Spend Analysis enables customers to make short, medium, and long-term cost reduction plans. Spend Analysis is particularly effective as a strategy to reorganize capital budgets to lower, not increase, long-term costs. Remend’s Spend Analysis is the first step towards saving money on perennial Oracle software support fees.
