Oracle Unified Method (OUM) Customer Program

PURCHASE OPTION NOW AVAILABLE!

Oracle’s Full Lifecycle Method
for Deploying Oracle-Based Business Solutions

The Oracle® Unified Method (OUM) Customer Program has been expanded to include a purchase option.

The Program allows customers to obtain copies of the method for their internal use – including guidelines, templates, and tailored work breakdown structure – in one of two ways:

1.) OUM Customer Program – No-Cost Option:

Customers, who have a signed contract with Oracle for a consulting engagement of two weeks or longer meeting some additional minimum criteria, are permitted to download the current release of OUM for their perpetual use. They may also obtain subsequent releases published during a renewable, three year access period.

2.) OUM Customer Program – Purchase Option:

Customers who do not qualify for the free option, and who do not wish to engage Oracle consultants, can opt to purchase the OUM Method Pack. The price for an unlimited, perpetual license is 16,000 USD. This allows the customer to distribute OUM within their enterprise for internal use. At the time of purchase, customers are also able to purchase an initial three year subscription for 15% of the purchase price or 2,400 USD. After the initial subscription period, the subscription may be renewed annually for 2,400 USD. This subscription allows them to download updates to OUM during the subscription period.

    Contact your local Oracle Sales Representative about enrolling in the OUM Customer Program.
