Why should I buy Oracle Licences from an Oracle Partner?

Oracle Partners are accredited to assist customers on Oracle Products and you get the benefit of their years of experience dealing with Oracle. A great Oracle partner won’t let you pay more for your licences than you should and will usually get you better discounts than Oracle. Compass Consult has never been beaten by Oracle on a discount. A partner can get you a higher discount on your initial software purchase and, as a result, so your support costs (which is 22% of your initial software purchase) will also be reduced.

Additionally, Oracle is well known for its complex licensing rules and changes to pricing, products, and rules are often not clearly understood by the customer but happen quarterly. Changes to the licensing policy can impact your strategy and budget. An Oracle partner is always on top of the licensing rules and might facilitate you to craft a plan that matches your company’s needs while staying in compliance with Oracle’s changing rules.

Simply put, an Oracle Partner can help you avoid an Audit and save you significant money in the long run. Learn more…
