Manage Your Oracle Java Footprint

You know it. The application owners know it. The security officers know it. The IT and SAM departments know it. Everyone knows that Oracle changed its licensing policy for Java in 2019 and that these changes have an impact on your deployments of Java. However, you may not be sure what this impact is from a financial, audit and security risk perspective. Defining a strategy for Java is crucial, but where do you start? It all starts with insight into your current situation and understanding how it impacts your business. It can be challenging to get everyone on the same page, but the good news is that you don’t have to face this situation alone.

SoftwareONE’s Java Advisory Service provides the support needed to manage your Java footprint and reach your goals. By working with SoftwareONE as your trusted advisor, you will be able to detect and mitigate risks, achieve cost savings, obtain maximum benefit from your existing licenses and most importantly, define a long-term Java strategy.

Do You Ask Yourself Any of These Questions?

Do I need to pay a subscription fee for all my Java deployments to make use of the latest Java updates and patches?

Does the use of Java Commercial Features always require a payable license or subscription?

Does running older versions of Java pose serious security risks?

Do I have to license my complete VMware infrastructure for the deployment of Java?

Are there cheaper alternatives to Oracle Java?

All of the above are valid questions that Oracle customers are asking about their Java entitlements and deployments – and the answer is not always straightforward. Our specialists will work closely with your team to assess every installation of Java that is being used, ensure your license forecast fits your Java applications on your virtual machines and help you understand every aspect of using the free version, including if there are any risks involved.
