TekStream Oracle Licensing Services
Get the best Oracle products for your organization without falling afoul of complex Oracle licensing rules
Oracle offers some of the best enterprise software available for a wide variety of applications. Many companies want to leverage custom suites of products, yet few understand the complexities involved in licensing this kind of software. That’s why many organizations end up either overpaying for unnecessary licenses or accidentally failing to purchase the right licenses, which leads to costly audits. Either mistake can dramatically reduce the ROI of these valuable offerings. TekStream’s Oracle licensing consultants can help you get the right licenses you need, while minimizing your costs.
About Our Oracle Licensing Services:

Our team has decades of Oracle licensing experience, so we can clearly lay out all your options. We help you choose the Oracle licenses that work best for your organization and ensure you get the best price. With our deep knowledge of the Oracle discount approval process, we can ensure you leverage every possible option to save money, while staying compliant with Oracle’s complex licensing rules.
- Support Renewal Reduction Consulting— If you simply want to save money on your annual Oracle support renewals, we can provide Oracle licensing consulting to identify potential savings. We pinpoint areas where you may be overpaying and provide you with viable alternatives that reduce costs without taking away vital services.
- Audit Defense and Prevention— TekStream’s Oracle licensing experts have worked with many customers to help prevent Oracle licensing audits. We explore your current position and see how we can avoid any future audit. If you are already undergoing an Oracle audit, our team can identify and fix potential compliance issues to mitigate any fees Oracle might try to impose as part of the audit.
- ULA/ELA Evaluation Services— Is your Unlimited License Agreement with Oracle really a good deal? TekStream consultants can help you to evaluate the ROI of your current usage and identify any alternatives that could be more cost-effective for your organization. Often, your projected use in these agreements doesn’t match up with your actual use, which means that you may be overpaying. Our evaluation services help you maximize the ROI of your ULA.
- MySQL, Oracle Linux, and Oracle VM Support— Unlike Oracle’s other support offerings, TekStream is able to offer additional discounts on support for these Oracle products— even after the first year of purchase. If you currently are purchasing support for these software offerings directly from Oracle, TekStream can save you money on your next renewal.
Oracle licensing can be complex, confusing, frustrating, and expensive. It is challenging to comply with all licensing rules, no matter how carefully you approach the process internally. Avoiding Oracle audits is critical to keeping your costs under control. At TekStream, we leverage the years of experience of our licensing consultants to reduce costs and complexity— so you get the best possible deal.
In addition, Oracle is making a massive investment in Cloud technologies that can help companies get even better results with Oracle products. This has resulted in thousands of new Oracle products, metrics, purchasing rules, and pricing structures. TekStream has consulted on Cloud technologies since day one of their release, which means we can guide you through the maze of Cloud options. Whether you want a traditional On-Prem solution or are looking to take your business into the Cloud, our team ensures you get the products and performance you need without taking on a high recurring operating expense.
