We have over 20 years inside Oracle licensing experience and have mastered all aspects of licensing Oracle and Oracle negotiations.  SLC is not an Oracle reseller so you will get 100% unbiased advice on how to license Oracle, negotiate the best Oracle contract and reduce your Oracle license costs.

Since 2003, we have worked with some of the top companies creating strategies that help reduce Oracle costs, increase deployment and avoid unexpected compliance issues.

Co-founder ands Chief Strategic Officer Ed Ramirez set out to change the way companies buy Oracle Software. With extensive experience in various leadership roles within Oracle, Mr. Ramirez has leveraged that knowledge to help companies negotiate better Oracle license terms and procure their Oracle products in a much more cost effective way.

Over the last 14 years he has been regarded as the ultimate Oracle license expert helping companies reduce Oracle costs and regain control of their relationship.

We focus on how to improve your current license architecture, support stream, and as well as how to maximize any future Oracle purchase. We have saved customers over $850 Million in license costs and ongoing support fees.
