AWS, Azure and Oracle Cloud Services

The options, rules, and policies around  SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, and BYOL are complex. Rules vary for deployments
based on the provider.
We provide services for Oracle Cloud, AWS, and Microsoft Azure.  Cloud costs can get out of control quickly without a deep expert on your side.

Oracle and Workday Negotiation

Bold experts provide unparalleled insight and strategy for negotiations.

Our deep understanding of dynamic licensing rules, business practices, and customizable agreements ensure our clients the best outcome
when making a purchase.

Oracle Licensing is complex - multiple license metrics, models, types, editions, and bundles can cause confusion.  There are thousands of products, numerous price lists, licensing prerequisites, limitations, and minimums.  Agreements can also be customized. In some cases license types can be negotiated that may not be commercially published. Special terms can significantly impact the long term value of software assets. Oracle makes many changes to License and Service Agreements each year and keeping track of these changes can be challenging and time-consuming.

Disruptive Technologies 

Virtualize, secure, and manage data with the Delphix Data Platform.  Provision lightweight, compressed copies of production data in minutes, while keeping them in sync. Secure sensitive data in adherence to security policies and ensure regulatory compliance. Move and manage data from any environment – on-prem, cloud, or hybrid. The Bold team is a Delphix Partner and this disruptive technology has helped many of our clients

to increase agility and lower costs.

"Bold's extensive Oracle expertise is second to none.  I have worked with Oracle for over 20 years and I thought I knew all of the in’s and out’s of Oracle pricing but Bold had additional insight that I did not have.  They helped us maximize our Oracle investments and they are a pleasure to work with.  Their “inner Oracle workings” advice around discounts was invaluable in negotiating optimal pricing.  In addition, they are available at all times to answer questions and walk you through all scenarios."
