Java License Assessment Service

Our Java License Assessment Service & Analyzer is designed to  provide customers a deep dive into current usage patterns to avoid compliance penalties.

Java’s licensing maze

For enterprises worldwide, navigating the ever-shifting landscape of Java licensing has become a growing headache. Oracle’s recent overhaul of the Java license metric has drastically inflated the cost of Java usage, with estimates suggesting a 10-fold to 14-fold increase.
