Be Bold, Become Empowered
Bold's mission is to enable our Clients to make better investments in technology. We succeed when our customers become highly informed buyers. Our portfolio of complimentary services empowers our clients to maximize their investments in software licensing and cloud services.
AWS, Azure and Oracle Cloud Services
Taking control of your Oracle Costs begins with a detailed assessment. It's critical to understand your entitlements, risk, projected future costs and all licensing options. The assessment serves as the roadmap to a better long term licensing strategy.
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.
Workday, Salesforce and Oracle Consulting Services
Software Asset Management
Bold consultants are seasoned experts with 15-20+ years experience. We offer Services for Oracle, Salesforce and Workday. Our teams help Bold clients set strategies, define architectures, integrate applications, deliver solutions and support. We offer project based services as well as strategic staffing.
Real time accurate insight into your organization's Oracle deployments helps to better negotiate licensing contracts, plan budgets, avoid over-provisioning costs and eliminate the risk of being non-compliant.

"Bold was a game-changer. With an extremely complex set of requirements and contract needs they helped save over $5+ million while supporting the elimination of future risk. Bold gave us a total win, even reducing deployment time constrained models. They are the best in this space."
"Bold is a real asset to our organization and trusted advisor. They help us manage a large Oracle License and Cloud footprint and ensure that we are fully prepared and explore all options when working with Oracle. Having Bold on our side provides peace of mind that we are negotiating the best agreements and keeps us a highly informed buyer. I would recommend Bold to any Oracle customer looking to maximize these important software and cloud investments."
"Bold has been an excellent partner to work with over the years and they are experts in Oracle licensing. I highly recommend their services for any organization who has made or is considering investments in Oracle software and services."

"Jennifer’s insight into and knowledge about Oracle licensing terms and processes were invaluable to our organization. She provided expert guidance from start to finish, and I highly recommend reaching out to her when dealing with Oracle."
Giovanni Candeloro, former Guardian Life Insurance, Director, Database & Middleware Engineering & Support
"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."
