Oracle has introduced new pricing models to simplify the way users pay for its JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Siebel and Oracle E-Business Suite products.
Oracle said the Component Model is “a simple a la carte” plan that offers on demand, or utility-based pricing. The Custom Application Suite Model offers the ability to create custom bundles based on specific business needs.
The Enterprise Applications Model sets prices based on specific metrics, such as a firm’s annual revenue, and it offers unlimited use of applications. There is also an SMB Model, targeted at small and medium-sized businesses.
“We are combining the best of Oracle, PeopleSoft, Siebel and JD Edwards licensing programmes to provide our customers with a variety of flexible licensing models from which to choose,” said Jacqueline Woods, vice-president for global pricing and licensing strategy at Oracle.
Users can purchase software using the new pricing models or previous licensing models when purchasing additional products from old price lists. Newly released products will be offered under the new pricing models.
