Killexams : Why I Have A Hold Rating On Oracle
Oracle corporation sign

Marlon Trottmann


Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) is an American computer technology company that is mainly known for their cloud systems and database management systems in the Systems Software Industry. We can see that year-to-date, ORCL stock is underperforming the broader market and they have lost as much as 27.43% of market value while SPY declined by 23.62%.

Data by YCharts

After first analyzing the company’s financial performance, I do not believe this is an optimal buying opportunity for ORCL right now with reasons such as mediocre financial growth, valuation providing minimal upsides, and more. Investors, in my opinion, should "Hold" and wait for a better buying opportunity in this stock. Let's begin with an overview of what has occurred so far in the company activity analysis.

Company Activity

Oracle recently released fiscal 2023 Q1 on September 12th, and it has some mixed financial results. In case you missed it, here is a quote from their filings page that I found helpful in recapping the company’s performances thus far:

Total quarterly revenues were up 18% year-over-year in USD and up 23% in constant currency to $11.4 billion. Cloud services and license support revenues were up 14% in USD and up 20% in constant currency to $8.4 billion. Cloud license and on-premise license revenues were up 11% in USD and up 19% in constant currency to $0.9 billion. For the first quarter of fiscal 2023, Cerner contributed $1.4 billion to total revenues.

I then looked into Oracle’s Financials section and compiled the history of 2 important metrics: Normalized Diluted EPS and EBITDA. Oracle is a mature company and they have steadily grown EPS at a moderate 10-year 4.77% CAGR (calculations from May 2013 to May 2022). I also calculated the 10-year CAGR on EBITDA from the same time period to result in a meager 1.39% CAGR. These growth rates are mediocre for a company in a growing industry, and I am unsure if Oracle will keep pace with the industry. For example, if we take a look at the top companies in the Systems Software Industry, we can see Oracle hovering around the 14th to 15th position in growth, performance, etc. To further put this into perspective, Oracle has lagged behind the System Software Industry's growth rates. According to NYU Stern's historical data, the broader Software System & Application Industry has grown at a 23.04% 5-year CAGR with regards to net income which is far below Oracle’s growth rates mentioned above.

In addition to slow growth, there has been significant insider selling activity within the past 4 years. Insiders have bought $3.18 million while they sold nearly $1.48 billion in the time frame mentioned above. This is somewhat troubling and I believe that this could signal poor insider confidence within the company.

MarketBeat Oracle Insider Buying Screenshot


But, there are positives to note here. In Oracle's Q1 10Q, I noticed that management has been repurchasing shares in the past months and has a large buyback program of nearly ~$9 billion. Investors would be pleased to note their commitment to shareholder value, which would ultimately provide some support for the stock price. Here is a quote below on more details of these stock buybacks below from the 10Q:

Our Board of Directors has approved a program for us to repurchase shares of our common stock. As of August 31, 2022, approximately $8.9 billion remained available for stock repurchases pursuant to our stock repurchase program. We repurchased 7.5 million shares for $559 million during the three months ended August 31, 2022 (including 0.3 million shares for $26 million that were repurchased but not settled) and 94.0 million shares for $8.0 billion during the three months ended August 31, 2021, under the stock repurchase program.

Dividends Appear to Have Stable Recovery

Currently, Oracle has an annual dividend of $1.28 per share at a 1.79% annual yield. This yield is higher than SPY’s 1.70% but under the industry average of 2.21%. The company’s dividend program means the company falls short of the top 75% of dividend-paying corporations in the United States. Additionally, the company's EPS of $2.66 is more than enough to cover the annual dividend per share, leading to a sustainable payout ratio of 48.12% (derived by dividing annual dividend per share over EPS). ​Dividend yield rates additionally have seen recovery from the 2015 value and have grown back at a 15% 7-year CAGR since, providing investors with constant dividend growth for the last decade.

Stock Valuation

Oracle offers stable dividend payouts compared to its lumpy Free Cash Flow metric; thus, I valued the stock using conservative assumptions for the Gordon Growth Model ('GGM'). The GGM valuation approach works by assuming a constant sustainable dividend growth rate and discounting it back into the current stock price with a required rate of return. This is all summed up into this equation: "value of the stock" = "dividend per share" divided by "discount rate - dividend growth rate". It is worth noting that GGM frequently undervalues stock prices in general since dividend growth is conservatively expected to remain constant.

Knowing this, I first based my model on an annualized $1.28 dividend per share calculated by adding the preceding four quarters' $0.32 dividends (price history via Seeking Alpha). Then, I reasonably derived a discount rate of 5.9% from the cost of equity based on a 3-year levered-beta of 0.5. I estimated that dividends will grow in-line with inflation to be conservative, which I estimate from the 10-year treasury yield chart below. Plugging these three key values into the equation above, I found that the model yielded an intrinsic value of $63.68 per share, reflecting a minimal 0.6% upside over the current price of $63.68.

Risk Headwinds

The biggest risks that stand out for Oracle are the rising competitive landscape within the Software Industry and the harsh effects of the Federal Reserve's Monetary policy. We have been observing more and more well-known technology companies significantly investing in sectors where Oracle was dominating in, and, as a result, Oracle was unable to maintain its competitive positioning. It is evident that the other companies above the company all together can cut losses and cause the company to spend more cash. Here is a graph and a quote from an article from Ibisworld summing up the accurate activities:

“There are 16,431 Software Publishing businesses in the US as of 2022, an increase of 10.4% from 2021”

Ibisworld software companies screenshot


In addition, the overall macroeconomic landscape caused by the Federal Reserve’s attempts to taper down the inflation rates still makes it difficult for companies especially like Oracle to operate in. Inflationary rates have been leveling out to roughly 8.3%, but these rates still are the highest it has been in the past 5 years.

TradingEconomics inflationary rates


Competitor Comparisons

The last part of my thesis revolves around Oracle's competitive positioning and its comparison with competitors in the Systems Software Industry. I created a simple table below to compare Oracle’s financial performances (with data from Yahoo Finance) to similar competitors that income investors may seek out as an alternative such as Microsoft (MSFT), Adobe (ADBE), and more.

As a result, this table of P/E, P/S, and EBITDA yielded moderate results to say the least. When compared to industry giants like Adobe and Google (GOOGL) (GOOG), Oracle has a far cheaper P/S and P/E valuation. Not to mention, ironSource Ltd. (IS) (the top-ranked stock in the Systems Software Industry on Seeking Alpha) still has a higher P/S and P/E ratio. But, Oracle’s EBITDA is comparable to its competitors as they provide a higher EBITDA than Adobe, ironSource Ltd, SAP (SAP), and more. Overall though, competition in the industry is fierce and similar companies have the possibility to pressure and cut Oracle’s market share. With all of this, though Oracle is cheaply valued relative to peers in the industry, competitive pressures are still a concern to note.

Cisco Systems Inc






Again, I do not believe that ORCL Stock is an optimal purchase right now. Oracle historically has been growing at below industry average rates—this is reflected in EPS 4.77% 10-year CAGR and EBITDA 1.39% CAGR compared to the Software System & Application Industry 23.04% 5-year CAGR. My conservative Gordon Growth Dividend model resulted in a valuation price of $63.68 which is only a slight 0.6% upside from its current market price. I also think that competitive pressures and inflationary risks all together can be a serious headwind for Oracle. I will reassess my thesis following Oracle’s 2023 fiscal year Q2 earnings announcements or when the macroeconomic environment improves, but for now, with all the reasons discussed above, I recommend a “HOLD” on ORCL stock.

Killexams : Best System Administrator Certifications for 2019

When it comes to managing computer systems, whether in an office environment, on a campus or in an enterprise data center, there’s a long list of tools and technologies SysAdmins need to master. There are numerous certifications can help validate knowledge and skills in those areas.

In addition to server and client configuration and maintenance, many system administrators must understand access controls, network services and resource requirements for applications. They often find themselves working with directory and name services as well as network addressing, database services, web and desktop applications, email, and more.

Making sense of all these different system administrator roles and accompanying certifications is no easy task. After examining various credentials, we came up with a list of our five favorite system administrator certifications for 2019.

The following chart shows the results of an informal job search we conducted that gives you an idea of the relative frequency with which our top five certifications appear in real job postings. While all the certifications are popular, the CompTIA Server+ stands out as the clear favorite.

Job Board Search Results (in alphabetical order, by certification)*

Certification SimplyHired Indeed LinkedIn Jobs Linkup Total
MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure (Microsoft) 112 247 253 151 773
Oracle Linux System Administrator (Oracle) 311 377 124 304 1,116
RHCE (Red Hat) 507 625 864 286 2,282
Server+ (CompTIA) 98 111 165 25 399
VCP6.5-DCV (VMware)* 219 275 169 192 855

*When searching for VCP – Data Center credentials, we found most job descriptions didn’t indicate a specific version.

Although employers tend to pay SysAdmins less than some of their IT peers, such as network engineers and data architects, a career in system administration is still worth pursuing. SimplyHired reports $77,296 as the national average salary for SysAdmins, in a range from $49,746 to $120,102. Indeed.com pegs averages at $75,967 for plain-vanilla, and $88,032 for senior systems administrators.

MCSE: Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

The Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification has long ruled the hearts and minds of those who work on Microsoft-based systems, servers and clouds. MCSE certifications focus on the latest technologies for business applications, cloud infrastructures, data management and analytics, mobility, and productivity.

But when it comes to system administration certifications in general, the brightest lights are those that address Windows Server at the enterprise and server administrator levels. While these credentials don’t all specifically use “system administrator” in their descriptions, they all fall well inside the roles and responsibilities of system administration jobs. They’re also in high demand in job postings and classified job advertisements.

The MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure targets IT professionals seeking to promote careers such as information security analysts or computer support specialists. Those obtaining the certification will find that the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure credential is designed to validate the skills necessary to effectively run a data center, including networking, storage, systems management, virtualization and identity management.

Note: The Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) is Microsoft’s prevailing mid-range IT certification. It covers most administrative job roles, including system administration at both the desktop and server levels, as well as more specialized job roles that include SQL Server and Office 365. MCSA: Cloud Platform is a gateway certification that feeds into these MCSE certifications.

System administration candidates might also want to take a close look at the MCSE: Productivity credential, which garners nearly as many hits on job boards as the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure cert. The MCSE: Productivity focuses on Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint or Skype For Business. Because communications systems and services of all kinds are so important to business, these are good areas for aspiring and practicing system administrators to specialize in.

The Microsoft Certification Program underwent extensive changes in September 2016. Once you earn one of the latest MCSE credentials, you do not have to recertify within three years as used to be the case. However, by passing an elective test each calendar year, you add an entry to your transcript that indicates your commitment to staying current on technologies and expanding your skillset.

Oracle Linux System Administrator

Although known for its database products and solutions, Oracle also has its own distribution of Linux, geared for the enterprise and designed to support cloud environments. In fact, Oracle Linux is optimized for various Oracle products and platforms, such as Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Database Appliance.

To support Oracle Linux, the company offers the Oracle Linux System Administrator certification at Associate and Professional levels. A single Oracle Linux Certified Implementation Specialist credential is also offered. We focus on the Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) version in this section.

The OCP Oracle Linux System Administrator certification, currently at version 6 (although version 7 should be coming soon), covers a lot of details. Candidates must be well-versed on the Btrfs file system, control groups, Linux containers, advanced storage administration techniques, Oracle cluster management and package management. The certification also tests for knowledge of dump analysis, dynamic tracing, network and security configuration and more.

The OCP Oracle Linux System Administrator certification requires that candidates first obtain the Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administrator certification and pass one exam.

SysAdmins who support Oracle Solaris might be interested in the Oracle Solaris System Administrator certification, which Oracle offers at the Associate and Professional levels. Oracle also offers several server-related certifications for SPARC and Fujitsu servers.

Oracle Linux System Administrator Facts and Figures

RHCE: Red Hat Certified Engineer

In the realm of Linux system administrator certifications, Red Hat certs really stand out. Red Hat’s more senior-level certifications are especially popular among IT professionals as well as the employers who hire them. Those holding the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) credential qualify for job roles such as senior Linux administrator, senior UNIX administrator, senior systems engineer, infrastructure systems engineer, IT analyst and the like.

The RHCE is regarded as a high-level credential that’s not easy to obtain. Candidates must first obtain the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) credential and then pass a three and a half hour, hands-on, performance-based test that’s intense and demanding. Those who earn the RHCE can go on to earn the Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) in Infrastructure credential.

The current RHCE test is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. RHCE certification is valid for three years from the date the certification was achieved. To maintain the certification, a credential holder must pass any RHCA test or pass the RHCE certification test again before the end of the three-year period.

Note: In October 2018, IBM announced that it was acquiring Red Hat for the princely sum of $34 billion. It’s too early to tell what impact this may have on Red Hat certification offerings, if any.

CompTIA Server+

CompTIA offers a long list of entry-level certifications, such as the A+ for hardware technicians, Network+ for network admins and Security+ for security specialists, all of which are highly regarded in the computing industry. The CompTIA Server+ certification is no exception. Companies such as Intel, HP, Dell, Lenovo, Xerox and Microsoft, as well as the U.S. Department of Defense, recommend or require that their server technicians earn CompTIA Server+.

The Server+ certification test focuses on foundational server-related syllabus that are vendor-neutral in nature, including server hardware, operating systems, storage systems, networking, the IT environment (documentation, diagrams and best practices), security and disaster recovery, virtualization and troubleshooting.

The Server+ credential, along with sufficient experience, is a great asset for individuals seeking a position as a server or network administrator, systems engineer or website administrator. You can also consider it as a stepping stone to a more focused certification, such as the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) or the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA).

VCP6-DCV: VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization

The VMware family of certifications are must-have credentials for IT professionals interested in the field of virtualization. Offering a comprehensive certification program that encompasses all skills levels, VMware credentials are recognized globally as best in class.

The latest incarnation of the VMware vSphere product is Version 6.5. VMware currently offers two credentials which target vSphere V6.5 users: the VMware Certified Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization and the VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization (Design and Deploy). It’s anticipated that the VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX-DCV) will be available soon.

Although Version 6.5 is the latest version of the vSphere product, interested candidates can still certify on vSphere V. 6. The VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP6-DCV) is one of VMware’s most popular credentials with more than 100,000 certified credential holders. The VCP6-DCV prepares credential holders for more advanced certifications, including the VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP6-DCV) and the pinnacle cert, VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX-DCV). For this article, we chose to concentrate on the requirements for the VCP6.5 – DCV since it’s based on the latest version of vSphere.

Training is required for non-credential holders seeking to obtain the VCP6-DCV. VMware offers a variety of training options to meet the training prerequisite: self-paced (on demand), live online and live classroom, some of which include virtual labs. Those possessing a valid VCP5-DCV or VCP6-DCV credential need only pass a delta exam to obtain the credential.

Beyond the Top 5: More SysAdmin Certifications

Beyond the five system administrator certifications featured in this article, there are many other certification programs that can help to further the careers and professional development of IT professionals who work in system administration.

It makes sense to investigate the plethora of vendor-specific programs available for those who work with systems from companies such as Brocade, Dell EMC, HPE, IBM, NetApp, Symantec and so forth. Many of them play into key system specialty areas, such as storage, security or virtualization, while others offer a broad range of platforms for these and other technology areas. Here are some examples:

  • IBM Certified System Administrator (and Advanced Administrator), for WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, AIX, DB2, Connections, Sametime, Lotus Notes, Informix, IBM i and more
  • NetApp Certified Data Administrator (NCDA), geared toward professionals who manage NetApp data storage controllers running the ONTAP operating system
  • ServiceNow Certified System Administrator, aimed at professionals who are adept at configuring, implementing and managing ServiceNow systems

Likewise, vendor-neutral certification programs also offer a variety of interesting and potentially valuable credentials. For example, the LPI LPIC certifications, which had been in our top five list for several years, are well known and widely recognized in IT shops and operations that depend on Linux servers to handle their workloads. It’s best to think of our top five certifications as a good place to start, while also realizing that there are many other options to consider as well.

Killexams : Oracle’s ‘Swiss Army knife’ approach to DBaaS continues to pay off with MySQL HeatWave ML

Open MySQL databases are the workhorse of data processing and analytics, with performance and cost benefits rivaling all the major cloud platforms.

But while traditional MySQL databases offer reliability and cost-savings, they suffer from limited reporting and analytics capabilities, low automation potential and zero machine learning ability. Database administrators have overcome this by adding on separate services in a “right tool for the right job” approach. It’s a method certainly employed by other cloud giants, where a smorgasbord of database options is fast becoming the norm.

Oracle Corp. chose a different path. With the popularity of its market-leading Oracle Database showing a very slow, but steady, decline as cloud databases started to pick up share, the company challenged convention by converging all database functionality in its MySQL HeatWave fully managed database service.

“We see Oracle, which is taking the Swiss Army Knife approach, converging database functionality, enabling analytic and transactional workloads to run in the same data store, eliminating the need to ETL, at the same time adding capabilities into its platform like automation and machine learning,” stated theCUBE industry analyst Dave Vellante in a CUBE Power Panel on the database market.

Vellante dug into MySQL Heatwave’s rapid evolution during a CUBE Conversation this week with Nipun Agarwal (pictured), senior vice president of MySQL Database & HeatWave at Oracle, and Kumaran Siva, corporate vice president of strategic business development at Advanced Micro Devices Inc. They discussed how in-database machine learning is becoming essential to provide the performance levels that modern analytics demand.

Automated training removes need for ML specialists

There are multiple reasons that Oracle chose to integrate ML into MySQL HeatWave rather than take the specialized database approach chosen by AWS and other competitors, according to Agarwal. First is security.

“Customers don’t need to move the data. And if they don’t need to move the data, it is more secure because it’s protected by the same access-controlled mechanisms as the rest of the data,” he explained.

Also, a single database is faster and let’s users avoid dealing with multiple services. Plus, they don’t have to pay for external ML services, according to Agarwal. Another differentiator is that Oracle has automated the ML training process within MySQL HeatWave. This removes the need to hire ML experts, as no specific parameters need to be provided, just the source data and the task on which the ML is to train.

“This is something which is very important to database users, very important to MySQL users,” Agarwal said. “They don’t really want to hire data scientists or specialists for doing training.”

Automating ML training speeds up the process, which makes more frequent retraining possible and enables models to be kept up-to-date.

“And, as a result of the models being up to date, the accuracy of the prediction is high,” Agarwal added.

Customers can then run inference to obtain actionable insights from the models. And, in what Agarwal said is “the most sought-after request,” they can obtain explanations for any model generated or trained by MySQL HeatWave ML.

How does MySQL HeatWave ML beat the competition?

MySQL HeatWave’s impressive performance statistics were discussed by Agarwal and Siva in a previous CUBE Conversation. And when it comes to MySQL HeatWave’s ML performance, Oracle provides numbers that come with bragging rights. Citing a comparison between MySQL HeatWave and AWS Redshift ML, the aggregate performance of HeatWave ML on 12 data sets for classification and six data sets on regression was 25 times faster than Redshift ML at 1% of the cost, according to Agarwal.

Research conducted for Wikibon, SiliconANGLE Media’s sister market research firm, by analyst Marc Staimer put MySQL HeatWave ML up against the competition. Results showed that in the total cost of ownership/performance, MySQL HeatWave beat Amazon Redshift ML by 82x, Azure SynapseML by 85x and GCP BigQuery ML by 88x.

“There are many techniques that we have developed specifically for machine learning,” Agarwal stated. “[These] provide us the better performance, better price performance, and also better scalability.”

This performance comes not from the more powerful Graphics Processing Units, as most would assume, by the less-energy-intensive Central Processing Units. This is enabled by AMD’s EPYC processors that power the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

“What you see in the AMD architecture for EPYC for this use case is the balance and the fact that you are able to do the pre-processing, the AI, and then the post-processing all seamlessly together — that has a huge value,” Siva said.

With MySQL HeatWave ML, inference, explanation and training all use the CPU in the same OCI infrastructure. Using the same infrastructure results in better TCO, as well as better performance because “you’re bringing the data to the computation,” according to Siva.

“The in-database HeatWave ML puts Redshift ML and Snowflake on notice,” Ron Westfall, senior analyst and research director at Futurum, said in the CUBE Power Panel. “Are these solutions more like yesterday’s tech in terms of engineering, performance and cost? Because they’re slower and more expensive, chances are the answer is yes.”

Killexams : Imperva Meets Enterprise and Public Sector Data Security Needs for Critical and Sensitive Workloads on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

The MarketWatch News Department was not involved in the creation of this content.

SAN MATEO, Calif., (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Imperva, Inc., (@Imperva) a cybersecurity leader whose mission is to protect data and all paths to it, announces that Imperva is extending its award-winning, hybrid data security platform to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to help customers simplify migration, and automate compliance monitoring of cloud data instances. Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) has achieved Powered by Oracle Cloud Expertise status and is now available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace, offering added value to Oracle Cloud customers.

Imperva DSF provides unified data-centric security controls across the entire data estate offering scalability and simpler infrastructure. Through a single interface, Imperva Data Security Fabric helps discover and protect sensitive data types, including structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data, as enterprise customers migrate from globally dispersed data centers to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. In addition, Imperva DSF supports several Oracle Database versions including Oracle Database 19c, and Oracle Database 21c, as well as Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW). Imperva is also a member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN).

“The cloud represents a huge opportunity for our partner community," said David Hicks, group vice president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. "Imperva’s commitment to innovation with Oracle Cloud along with knowledgeable execution can help our mutual customers deploy cloud-enabled cybersecurity solutions optimized to meet critical business needs.”

“Improving the customer experience is a top business priority driving digital transformation. With customers becoming more attuned to the value of their data and the risks present as a result, organizations need to consider security and data protection as part of this transformation,” said Jennifer Glenn, Research Director for the IDC Security and Trust Group. “For Oracle customers considering moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Imperva Data Security Fabric can provide visibility and automation across each environment, helping protect critical data at each stage of the migration.”

“Imperva and Oracle have collaborated for years, helping mutual customers monitor and secure their sensitive data,” says Dan Neault, SVP and GM, Data Security, Imperva. “We are excited to share that we have extended our platform to customers migrating their data to OCI with Imperva Data Security Fabric, now available in the Oracle Cloud marketplace.”

Security complexity has hindered cloud agility

The cloud has revolutionized IT, offering organizations a strategic accelerator to rapidly pursue new market initiatives and adapt their operations in the face of new business challenges and opportunities. However, uncertainty about how best to overcome security risks and ensure regulatory compliance has slowed cloud adoption historically.

Significant differences between on-premises and cloud database environments have led organizations to try extending traditional database security tools to their cloud environments. Often they encounter unavoidable limitations, from the technical impossibility of installing agents on database as a service (DBaaS) deployments, to the practical limitations of directing all cloud database traffic through a proxy service. This has resulted in organizations using a patchwork of individual tools. This approach raises the likelihood of human error, unnecessarily increasing the risk of a breach or compliance failure.

Automation for many data security and regulatory compliance tasks reduces, and in some cases, may eliminate the burden placed on data security teams to manually keep compliance updates, records, and audit trails. Imperva DSF can help save time and reduce the cost of securing data by unifying security tasks including data activity monitoring, sensitive data discovery, classification, compliance, risk analytics, and threat detection.

Powered by Oracle Cloud, Imperva DSF provides information security leaders with an approach for enabling security, compliance and governance outcomes. Security teams can benefit by simplifying the protection of the organization’s diverse data ecosystem, with single-pane-of-glass administration, integration with other IT security investments, and broad database coverage.

Killexams : Oracle verifies Java licensing tools from Flexera and Lime Software © Provided by The Register

While one vendor says they help prepare for audit, expert warns they don't defend compliance

Oracle has begun to verify software tools from third-party vendors designed to monitor the licensing of Java products in enterprise environments, prompting a warning from one expert.…

In March, the omnipresent software giant began to include Java tools in its software licensing audits, often feared by users who can get caught out by the small print if not the spirit of the contract.

Big Red first introduced two new licensing models for its commercial Java platform, Standard Edition (Java SE), in April 2019 when it began charging license fees for previously free Java. This requires users to purchase an annual subscription for commercial Java SE products in order to receive patches and updates.

By September 2021, when Oracle released Java 17, it began to offer a no-fee license with free quarterly updates for three years – but only for that iteration, not earlier releases such as Java 7, 8 and 11.

Oracle has now Checked vendors who offer product tools to help monitor licensing and usage data of Oracle database, Fusion middleware, and Java. The two approved vendors are Flexera and Lime Software.

Oracle has an approved set of licensing tools for its broader set of application and infrastructure software, and experts have warned that, while they can be useful, they do not secure the user organization a cast-iron license position in defense of an aggressive audit. In fact, Oracle is free to use the data from the tools to inform its case in the audit.

In March, Garrick Brivkalns, program manager for Oracle Global Licensing and Advisory Services, told a webinar that Oracle only Checked raw usage data on these tools. It was "not working to verify any other aspects that the tool might possess such as entitlements tracking, matching entitlements, the usage, and compliance position determinations," he said.

Craig Guarente, founder and CEO of Oracle licensing advisory firm Palisade Compliance, told The Register this week that the new Java audit tools should come with a similar health warning.

"None of these tools can provide you a compliance position," he said. "These Checked tools, whether they are for Java or other products, just mean that Oracle verifies that the tools bring in all the information Oracle would need to conduct an audit. For example, if the tools say you are using 100 licenses, that does not mean that Oracle will agree you are using 100 licenses. It just means that Oracle will be able to take the raw data and do their own analysis and come up with their number."

Although the tools could make it easier for Oracle to audit a user, they were useful at least in the sense they provided a data point. "That's better than nothing," Guarente said.

Palisade has a Java licensing tool which would never be Checked by Oracle because "that is not in the best interests of our clients," Guarente said

However, Lime Software argued that since 2010, Oracle had accepted the data collected by various tool vendors.

"Tool [verified] vendors should bring back the same data Oracle would," director Alex Andrew told The Register. "When we build our products, we break down each licensed component, build test scenarios for usage of each product, and demonstrate that across all platforms and versions we were collecting the right data."

He said the tools were safer to use than Oracle scripts themselves because they are not supported by Oracle for production environments. "I'm not saying that I have ever seen a case where the scripts failed or caused production issues. It's just one of those things that makes the management team nervous," he said.

Use of Checked licensing tools was "a great way to defend against an Oracle audit," Andrew said.

"Forewarned is forearmed, especially in the case of Oracle Java. There has been a lot of misleading advice about Java licensing given it is a fairly new and extensively wide-scale problem hitting C Level procurement and software asset management teams."

But there are exceptions where versions and environments do not need licensing, Andrew said. The Lime Software was designed to reveal that information, but it should be used in isolation, he said.

A more complete approach to compliance involves tools, people, and processes to get most out of their agreements without becoming non-compliant. "The tools should be identifying the risks, the consultants should be managing those risks, the processes should mean that the risks don't recur," he said. ®
