Being compliant, though reducing risk
The London Borough of Hackney was keen to reduce the risk of over-spend on Oracle software licensing, but with essential public services underpinned by Oracle solutions, it's also vital to have a compliant software estate. Traditionally the Council transacted directly with the vendor, but it didn't have the in-house skills and resources to ensure that its licence agreements matched its need.

Analysing requirements for optimisation
As the Council has an ongoing relationship with us for hardware supply via the CITHS (Commodity IT Hardware & Software) framework, it decided to turn to us for help. Over three months, we completed a thorough analysis of the Council's Oracle requirements and existing licences. We then advised on the licences that were no longer necessary, and those that could be consolidated.Download the full case study here.
