How ISAM Helped a Government Agency Reduce Software Costs by 50%
The agency expressed concerns about their software support costs with Oracle. They were in an annual support plan and wanted to explore options for reducing licenses, costs, or both. Oracle’s approach made it difficult because repricing was inevitable in reduction efforts. Additionally, with the shift in technology, Oracle’s presence at the agency was decreasing, potentially weakening the agency’s negotiation standpoint.
We were able to create an effective license position with Oracle by aligning the agency’s unused software with Oracle CSIs and canceling any that were no longer needed. With this information, we were able to negotiate further reductions with Oracle, resulting in significant cost savings for the agency. By utilizing this approach, we were able to not only ensure initial compliance but also provide reduction opportunities within the current contract period while ensuring long-term savings.
Real solutions, real stories, real success.
I was very happy with my ISAM experience and only have good things to say.
