Managing costs and finding ways to fund innovation are critical in today’s business environment. For Oracle licensees, a large percentage of the IT budget goes to license fees and Oracle support costs. What if that percentage could be reduced and the funds redirected to innovation?
To begin reducing Oracle costs, licensees must optimally manage their contracts to maintain license compliance while avoiding risk. Licensees must also analyze their Oracle support and determine if the support received is worth the increasing costs.
This on-demand webinar featuring Craig Guarente of Palisade Compliance and Dan Ashton of Rimini Street discusses best practices for reducing Oracle costs and specific steps that licensees can take today, including consideration of third-party support.
Dan has an extensive background with over 17 years in enterprise product marketing and corporate marketing management as well as sales management roles. As the Senior Director of Product Marketing, he is responsible for Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Technology at Rimini Street. Prior to joining our team, Dan was the Principal Product Director, Procurement Marketing at Oracle and also held key product marketing roles at SAP/Ariba. He was also a director on the marketing team at Chemdex / Ventro, the first B2B market exchange to go public in 1999.
