Oracle Audits


 

Business Oracle licensees should proceed with caution when analyzing their Oracle licensing position, especially if the licensee receives an inquiry from Oracle’s License Management Services (LMS) team requesting that it complete an Oracle Server Worksheet.

Before responding to an Oracle licensing inquiry, it is important to identify a mutually agreeable framework for the response. Make sure that you understand the scope of the audit and know how the audit materials will be used. Clarifying what Oracle expects to see in the audit response can make the audit more efficient and the outcome less surprising.

Before submitting any data or information to Oracle, it is critical to understand which license agreement and what terms will govern the licensing review.

A thorough understanding of the license obligations can help an organization determine which information Oracle has the right to request in an audit. Without a thorough review of the appropriate licensing terms, it can be difficult to know how to appropriately complete an Oracle Server Worksheet or otherwise respond to an Oracle license verification.
