SaaS Licensing Options
By shupadhy on May 28, 2009
If I would to filter out the two most common topics we discuss with partners in our one on one meetings or through our email account firstname.lastname@example.org, it has to be Licensing & Data Architecture.
As one of our partners put it, Oracle understands SaaS Operations and our licensing supports “real usage” versus static server / cpu / core model. Further, based on your business model we have different options to license Oracle SaaS Platform in order for you to be successful. Similar to Oracle Fusion MiddleWare, the Oracle SaaS Platform is not a single item on our price list, but you license the components you need. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, increasingly a number of our customers have started buying most of our components, which are tested to work together. This enables them to quickly assemble a common platform in-house to deliver different subscription based software services to their customers. I know, you will still have questions about how our licensing can adapt to your business model. In our monthly SaaS webinar series, we will be covering this topic in June. Please register here." We also send a recording link to registered folks in case they are not able to join.
I'll cover the Data Architecture topic in a later post
