The Oracle Enterprise software licensing model is based on so-called Enterprise metrics, which are defined by an organization’s size of some kind, for example: Enterprise Employee, Enterprise $M in Revenue, and $M Revenue under Management. The Enterprise metrics are independent of the real number of users or systems on which the Oracle software is installed. This may seem easy to understand and applied but in reality many companies encounter various difficulties when fulfilling their annual reporting obligations.

Decreasing the risk for organizations of not being compliant with Oracle policies and contractual rules or regulations requires a clear understanding of the rationale behind the Enterprise licensing type. Addressing and discussing details and issues will reduce the risk of noncompliance since end-users will be educated, equipped and enabled to manage their software licenses properly.
