License Audit is an initiative from License Consulting BV, a consulting company established in 2007 and primarily run by ex-Oracle LMS auditors. Today the company is the oldest consultancy firm dedicated to Oracle licensing, providing expertise to many partners and clients. In 2014 a project was initiated to automate the audit script analysis process and develop better, free and secure Oracle Database audit scripts making License Consulting’s highly regarded skill set available to Oracle users and Oracle Partners worldwide. The automated reports provide meaningful information for Oracle license compliance managers, Database Administrators, IT Architects and their IT / SAM Partners.
Oracle’s license requirements for Database Options and Management Packs have always been controversial. Many clients only learn about current (un)intended or historical deployments during Oracle LMS audits, after which they are again exposed without means to maintain compliance and control. With the help of License Audit, clients and their IT Partners are now able to understand and control the deployment of Oracle Database Options and Management Packs.
