Xynomix Offer Discount Oracle Licensing for NHS Trusts…
Relevant IT decision-makers will be well aware that the NHS Enterprise Wide Agreement with Oracle is fast-approaching its expiry date.This agreement, upon which a wide-range of different NHS systems have been built since 2004, will reach an end in June 2014. At this point any existing Oracle instances will be transferred to local ownership, with their continued licensing becoming the responsibility of the individual NHS trusts.
Whilst this does means that new licenses must be purchased by any trust looking to continue using Oracle Enterprise Wide Agreement products after this date, the situation also represents an opportunity for significant improvements to be made to existing systems. Oracle have added to and improved on their product-range extensively since the agreement was first established in 2004, meaning that IT decision-makers will now look towards Oracle consultants to establish the current ‘best-fit’ solution to their needs.
It is apparent that this transition period is crucial if continuity of service is to be experienced by patients, staff and other stakeholders. The highly experienced licensing consultants at Xynomix are able to easily review and understand the complexities involved with an existing Oracle footprint, ensuring that the correct new licenses are purchased and maintained. Concurrently, the significant commercial pressure on NHS decision-makers to ensure that the ‘best possible’ financial terms are agreed is recognised and accounted for.
As an Oracle Gold Partner, established for more than ten years and with direct links into Oracle, the Xynomix team are perfectly positioned to preside over this transition period, ensuring that the process runs as smoothly and trouble-free as possible. There is also an additional discount on the total cost of ownership available if orders are placed prior to the 30th April 2013, providing an incentive for those affected to tie off the deal well before the agreement’s expiry date!
