Remend can create and defend a business case with Oracle to reinstate or re-license under attractive terms even when you have opted for third-party support. In fact, Remend often recommends third-party support as a temporary step, not necessarily a final destination. To that end, our Third-party Readiness service mitigates similar vendor lock-in policies used by both Oracle and the third-party provider to secure renewals.
There are a few reasons to return to Oracle Support. Perhaps plans to migrate away from Oracle never materialized. Was a major upgrade or license recapitalization always the plan? Perhaps it is necessary to upgrade or patch beyond what is available within the legacy archive. No matter the case, the underlying technical requirements and future-facing business strategies inevitably change such that returning to Oracle under optimized terms is advisable.
