Q Software Global has announced QCloud License Audit – a cloud-based service that enables clients to evaluate their usage of ERP modules against their licensed allowances. The company said with this service, Oracle ERP customers can now login to the QCloud portal to request an audit and then receive their results in just an hour. The service’s analysis results show customers how many users have updated tables in each module and also find any modules where usage exceeds their licensed quota.
Brian Stanz, Chief Technology Officer, Q Software, said, “As organisations grow and ERP usage expands, it can be difficult to keep track of who’s using what. If the Oracle License Audit team come knocking, this can lead to unexpected, and often large, bills for non-compliant usage. This handy service, which can be run on demand, with no technical effort, makes it easy for Oracle customers to monitor usage and stay compliant.”
For now, the customers who wish to utilize the service will be required to log in to the QCloud portal and set up their license details using the ERP module listing. The company said, at the next release, customers will be able to automatically populate license details by fetching them from the Oracle Support site. Once the audit is complete, requesters receive an email notification with links to the results.
According to Q Software, this audit helps customers to not only keep an eye on license usage, but also avoid unexpected charges for non-compliant use and provide evidence for the Oracle License Audit team. The company also announced a special offer for the QCloud License Audit launch wherein customers who sign up for a QCloud Security Audit before the end of this month will receive a License Audit free of charge.
