About this event

This webinar has now taken place.


Join Paul Bullen, Principal License Consultant from Version 1 and Rich Gibbons Licensing Analyst from ITAM Review for a live webinar on Thursday 5th March at 4pm GMT. 

This is a topic which affects everyone; not just Oracle customers! There’s a lot of discussion about Oracle’s change to the way that Java is licensed; sadly there are also a lot of myths and misunderstandings. This session will look at what the changes are, what they really mean and whether you need to panic or not!

We’ll also discuss options available, the processes you should undertake, what you need to count and how to count it, including the dreaded ‘VMware rule’. We will also provide insights into findings of our reviews of enterprise approaches to Oracle Java.
