While the ULA called “All You can eat” deal, it is a fact that it does not cover all situations. This means that you are easily led to a false sense of security and that you can use Oracle software in a way that is not within your agreement. This inevitably results in an unexpected invoice at the end of your ULA or, worse, a violation of the terms of the provision, which means that you are obliged to certify earlier than expected. This can only be mitigated by careful control of Oracle`s succession and future use. Control costs, manage the complexity and compliance of the license with the asset management service of Version 1 Control. This service confirms all of our commitments to help organizations defend themselves against audits, size licensing costs and compliance. The methodology was then developed to maintain this optimal position on an ongoing basis and to reduce risks and costs. Now that you`re doing well, we assume you`ve already entered or considered an ULA for your organization. The first thing to keep in mind is that the contractual document by which you get unlimited disposal rights is actually an order document. This order document refers at any time to a specific license agreement called Oracle Master Agreement (OMA). The license agreement itself defines the terms and conditions for any license, support, hardware and/or cloud orders that you may execute in violation of this Agreement. For example, consider the rights to monitor the programs in your ULA order document.
It is therefore important to maintain and manage the ULA order document and associated licensing agreement in order to obtain a complete and accurate picture of the rights and obligations you have agreed to. The restrictions of an ULA are subject to the terms of the agreement. Some ULA clauses relate to products and uses, while others refer to your organization or the concept of ULA. When your ULA expires, you have two options: you can certify and report your use on Oracle, or you can extend your ULA for a new period of three years (or more).
