What Oracle's Cloud Strategy Means for End Users from a Compliance Perspective

Date: 15th March

Time: 11:55- 12:40

Room: Balmoral One

Oracle has been progressively bolstering its cloud offerings and cloud solutions will increasingly be offered to end users as a solution to meet their needs. However migrating into the cloud does not relieve the end user from being audited. Oracle's License Management Services (LMS) can and does conduct cloud audits. This presentation will cover what an Oracle end user need to be aware of if they move into the cloud from an LMS perspective.
