We have Flexera or another Oracle Certified Tool: Should we use this?

Oracle’s Certified Tool program is no longer up to date. Most vendors are dealing with outdated scripts. For Certified Tooling vendors, the analysis algorithm is created by Oracle and is aimed at generating license revenue rather than information or optimization. To test drive the difference, just compare the outcome from an Oracle Certified Tool with License Audit.

We have already been working with Oracle Certified Tools who recognize that our engine is second to none and provide much more useful and valuable than the scripts and algorithms provided by Oracle. In fact, many clients use Flexera company wide. We encourage clients to use discovery tools such as Flexera, but can always demonstrate it is better to rely on License Audit for data analysis.
