I read recently that #Oracle has scrapped its Compliance & Optimization License Services Unit and that it will no longer audit customers for compliance?
That is unfortunately not true- Oracle is still auditing, just last month they received significant news coverage about starting to aggressively audit Java installations. Please read as well enclosed links:
I assume, as long as there is a lot of additional revenue potential, Oracle will never stop auditing. Oracle licensing is and remains complex and customers can still easily download and install Oracle software without a license key. Not everyone will completely move to the cloud and Oracle in the past mainly focused on the database and on bigger customers. There are still a lot of customers and products to audit and even if the internal audit resources might shrink, there are LMS qualified partners that more and more process and support audits, also with a focus on smaller customers. Palisade Compliance is seeing especially smaller business at risk as well, because those customers can be better pushed to the cloud.
I support Alexander position, I see personally Oracle audit for quite small Oracle installation. It's not yet the trends, especially if we consider that Oracle Cloud is not so successful.
