Account Manager at Qualogy

Practial and hands on Oracle training for database administrators (DBAs). Case details:

  • What?
    B.lay delivered an Oracle licensing training at Qualogy to develop the knowledge of their onsite DBA consulting team in order to improve customer service.
  • Why?
    Qualogy wanted their DBAs to be aware of the potential impact of Oracle’s licensing rules, them being responsible for installing database software.
  • Benefits?
    DBAs got the opportunity to understand the logic behind Oracle’s licensing. They now are able to highlight to customers the importance of paying much more attention to Oracle licensing challenges.

Oracle Database and Hardware Infrastructure

The required number of licenses for Oracle’s Database programs are (almost) at all times related to the hardware infrastructure on which the software is installed. Incorrect interpretation or understanding of whether the software is deemed to be installed and how the installed software should be licensed in a certain specific hardware infrastructure is by far the number 1 license compliance issue.
