Why Us


We understand Oracle and its licensing principles, processes, practices, and people like very few other companies do. We spend a lot of time researching the changing nuances of Oracle’s approach to licensing its products to their customers across the globe.

Rythium has, in the 5 years since it was founded, has helped nearly 140 customers to manage Oracle contracts, license audits, audit defenses, ULAs, and PULAs. We have helped remediate and re-balance deployments to reduce risks & costs.

Our CEO is vain enough to believe that he is the best in this business. And our customers believe in this too. We are also proud to state that we do not have a single even slightly unhappy customer in this business.

Our Skill Sets

Oracle has one of the largest set of product portfolios in the software market & each of them can, and do, have different licensing methodologies. Advising a customer regarding Oracle licensing requires the consultant to:

  • Understand infrastructure technology – Operating Systems, Databases & Middleware
  • Understand applications – ERP, CRM, SCM, Telecom, Banking, Insurance etc
  • Understanding deployment architectures – Virtualization, Processor types, replication methods etc
  • Understand Legal Contracts – licensing rights, IP rights, usage terms etc
  • Understand Negotiation – what can get approved, what is the right ask, etc
  • Understand Risk Management – how far is too far, what is the right thing to do, etc

Rythium has all the above skills and tools to give the best independent Oracle License Management services.


We have built an arsenal of proprietary tools to discover Oracle deployments in different platforms and installation configurations. Our tools can ferret out the details of installations and usage in any deployment scenario. We also use queries and scripts that are widely accepted for cross-verification.


No Conflict of Interest

We are neither a partner of Oracle nor a re-seller of their licenses.
Nor do we fix deals.
We are on the same side of the table as you.

Most license consulting companies – be it the large audit firms with IT service arms or ‘SAM’ service companies – have an inherent, built-in conflict of interest because of their association with Oracle either as a license re-seller, integration partner or implementation partner. These companies play on both sides of the table. Any potential license non-compliance situation is a revenue opportunity for them rather than a situation that should be interpreted correctly and resolved with multiple remedial possibilities.

There are also some firms that, while not being official partners, manage & fix deals with Oracle. Their interests are more aligned with those of Oracle than your own.

We make no money from reselling Oracle licenses or implementing/integrating Oracle solutions. Nor do we fix deals. We love Oracle’s technology & application, understand its licensing in-depth and use this knowledge to reduce our customer’s risk & exposure.

We are financially motivated to remedy noncompliance.
