Company background

A multinational pharmaceutical corporation had been grappling with escalating Oracle licensing costs.  As their operations expanded, so did their reliance on Oracle databases and applications, leading to substantial licensing fees.  Seeking a solution to mitigate these expenses without compromising performance or functionality, they turned to Northdoor for assistance.


Escalating costs: Oracle licensing costs were increasing disproportionately as their business expanded, impacting their bottom line.

Complex licensing structure: Understanding and managing Oracle’s complex licensing model proved challenging, leading to potential compliance risks.

Scalability concerns: With plans for further growth, the business needed a solution that would scale efficiently without incurring exorbitant licensing costs.


The organisation partnered with Northdoor to optimise its Oracle licensing strategy and reduce costs while ensuring compliance and performance. Northdoor proposed the following approach:

License assessment:
We comprehensively assessed the existing Oracle licensing agreements, infrastructure, and usage patterns to identify inefficiencies and potential cost-saving opportunities.

Optimisation strategy:
Based on the assessment findings, we devised a tailored optimisation strategy focused on rightsizing licenses, optimising infrastructure utilisation, and leveraging alternative licensing models where applicable.

Technology integration:
Northdoor and IBM integrated their proprietary tools and technologies with the organisation’s infrastructure to automate license management, optimise resource allocation, and ensure continuous compliance with Oracle’s licensing policies.

Vendor negotiation support:
Leveraging our industry expertise and vendor relationships, Northdoor provided negotiation support to the organisation during discussions with Oracle, helping them secure favourable licensing terms and pricing.


Cost reduction:
By implementing our optimisation strategy, the Client achieved significant cost reductions in their Oracle licensing expenses, resulting in substantial savings for the company.

The automated license management tools and expertise ensured the client remained compliant with Oracle’s licensing policies, mitigating the risk of non-compliance penalties and audits.

The optimised licensing strategy allowed operations to be scaled efficiently without incurring disproportionate licensing costs, supporting growth objectives.

Our solution maintained and improved performance, ensuring seamless operations and user experiences with applications and databases.
