Oracle Vendor Management program is Rythium’s premier offering for customers who want to control the entire lifecycle of Oracle procurement, license compliance and reduce costs of the Oracle ecosystem.
Why is Oracle an extremely difficult vendor to manage?
- Oracle products are deeply embedded into the IT infrastructure and used for core operations.
- Oracle cost increases are unpredictable.
- Oracle deployment sprawl needs governance.
- Oracle’s contracts are long term contracts without easy exits or correction possibilities.
- Oracle tends to use very aggressive sales practices and the fear of license audits to grab huge revenues from their customers.
- Oracle has a huge ecosystem that wants to make money from their customers. The partners of Oracle act in unison.
Rythium’s OVM is not a ‘staff-augmentation’ to get additional vendor management resources.
Rythium’s OVM is a transformational engagement to manage Oracle compliance risks and reduce procurement and lifetime Oracle costs.
Rythium’s Expertise in Oracle Vendor Management:
- Knowledge of Oracle’s business practices. This knowledge has been honed through decades of working on Oracle negotiations, license management engagements and vetting of Oracle contracts. We have worked with more than 180 customers.
- Operational Expertise across the multiple facets of the vendor management process – managing license compliance, contract amendments & pricing structures.
- Knowledge of Oracle’s technologies and Applications. Negotiations with Oracle is not about money alone. It is also, and maybe even more important, about the functionality, deployment use cases, restrictions on usage of feature sets etc. Without the ability to understand how these factors affect your procurement it can get difficult to get the best value from your investments into Oracle licenses.
