A global internet holding requested help in the control and optimization of all of his Oracle products’ licensing, including E-Business Suite (OEBS), Database and its Options, Weblogic, Hyperion and Oracle Business Intelligence (Analytics). The company used E-Business Suite for e-services provided in multiple regions and supporting its partners.


The customer provides electronic services to aggregating partners distributed by industries and territories. The industries included: Transportation, pharmacy, food delivery, e-commerce, finance, travel, communication, digital content provision, among others.


For this e-services support, the customer used E-Business Suite applications to control the financial, procurement, and human resources information. The situation became challenging when the number of e-services and partners increased significantly and it became critical that we retain control over the software licensing cost. The project was complicated due to the E-Business Suite customizations, and usage of different license metrics, including application users and employees.

Solution provided

  • Usage assessment: Using our knowledge and experience, we evaluated the usage of Oracle products; including E-Business Suite (OEBS), Database and its Options, Weblogic, Hyperion and Oracle Business Intelligence (Analytics) as Oracle themselves would do, and we identified potential non-compliance.

  • OEBS clean up: We helped the customer to clean up the system according to Oracle's formal procedures - eliminated users, remapped them to only required modules, retrieved the unnecessary rights.

  • Usage optimization: Based on results of the assessment we provided recommendations to address the non compliance issues, in order to eliminate the financial risks.

  • OEBS mapping report: We created a "mapping report" to support the customer with customizations.
