QCloud License Audit as a Service:
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Licensing – Stay Compliant
Are You Compliant With Your Oracle ERP License?
It can be very difficult to keep tabs on your ERP usage and stay compliant with your license. If you’ve had the call from the Oracle licensing team, you may already know how big the bill can be!
Or perhaps you’re paying for licenses you don’t need. Can you be sure that you actually use all the items you’re licensed for? How would you find that out?
QCloud License Audit provides you with the information you need to optimize your ERP license charges. For a simple monthly fee, QCloud users can log in at any time to request an audit, and get the results back within hours. – with no technical resource required, no SQL scripts, and no panicking.
How the service works
You request an audit via the QCloud portal, then download Q Agent, which gathers the information needed, then pushes it to QCloud.
The data is analyzed and the audit report is produced. An email is sent to notify you that the report is ready, including links to access and download it via QCloud. An interactive view of the audit results is available online.
You will receive reports, with drill-down capabilities, on:
- All users who have carried out transactions in each module
- All users with security which enables them to carry out transactions in each module.
The report highlights any modules where usage exceeds the licensed quota.
