As an existing customer of Oracle’s, you’ll be aware that Oracle regularly audit their customer’s use of their software licence estate. Oracle may contact you any day, requesting they perform a friendly review that quickly turns into a formal audit. What if the non-compliance bill is over £200k? Has your company budgeted for that type of expense in the next 30 days?
