Rocela Events ….. coming up!

As we enjoy our typical Scottish summer (!), our thoughts turn to our next stream of Rocela events programmed for autumn and, dare I say it, winter!

Our Thought Leadership Sessions are as popular as ever – events in the enterprise software marketplace continue to provide much fodder for speculation, debate and serious discussion;

• The rate of Oracle’s acquisitions must be causing much consternation in most CIO and Senior IT professionals’ minds. How does a large enterprise organisation manage this ever increasing portfolio of products? How do they ensure value for money and risk reduction?
• Oracle aside, what about the bigger picture – enterprise application software asset management covering all the biggies! Where do you start with this sometimes herculean task?
• And more recently, the recent ECJ ruling on used software trading has raised many questions with no clear answers at this point. This one is likely to run on and on and on.

How to control costs, reduce risk and remain compliant is still high on enterprise organisations’ agenda. Our Rocela Control™ sessions remain a firm favourite with our prospects who relish the chance to discuss this often complex area in a safe environment. They value listening to our clients who have, more often than not been in similar licensing situations and with Rocela’s help, now enjoy a high degree of license management and cost control.

Finally, the interest in R12 is still running high. Our professional services team have been very busy over the last 12 months with numerous R12 Upgrade or implementation projects – we have an unprecedented level of expertise in this area that we can bring to these very popular R12 sessions.

If any of these sound interesting and you would like to attend, then please contact Linda Anderson on to be added to the invite list.

We hope to see you soon.

Oracle experts Rocela events for 2012

Rocela’s Oracle experts have been involved in a considerable number of client side activities this year – from assisting large enterprise organisations declare their Oracle ULA to helping a global utilities company upgrade to Oracle R12.

Our website, twitter and blog all try to educate, deliver value and convey our deep knowledge of ‘all things Oracle’ however there is nothing better than looking us in the eye and asking us the difficult questions.

That is why we are planning a Roadshow of events for 2012 – taking us all around the UK (Edinburgh, Aberdeen, London, Manchester) to talk to large enterprise organisations on;

• Oracle Thought Leadership – a peer to peer ‘behind closed doors’ session discussing Oracle trends, product roadmap, Cloud, ULA’s, Virtualisation, Strategic Vendor Management to name a few.
Rocela Control ™ Session – a presentation on the complexities of Oracle license management and how our proven SAM methodology, Rocela Control ™ can help. This will also include a client case study, where one of our customers will present on their situation, what problems and impacts this was causing and how engaging with Rocela benefited.
• R12 Sessions – presentations and peer to peer discussions on how we can help assess whether Oracle R12 is best for your organisation and how its new features/functions will benefit.

We have run a number of these sessions before which have prompted the following comments;

“Great to hear from other contacts in the industry and how they have tackled the same sort of issues we are facing.” IT Director, Retail Company

“(This session) has helped us consider whether Oracle R12 is the right move for us.” IT Manager, Public Sector Organisation

“Rocela has given me an invaluable insight into the benefits and pitfalls of Oracle’s ULA’s – many of which I was not aware of before!” License Manager, Financial Institute

If you are struggling with the complexity of Oracle licensing, need to reduce risk and cost or need advice on Oracle R12, then please email Linda Anderson on with your contact details and highlight which event you would be interested in attending.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2012.
