Re: "the murky world of licensing and software asset management"

"Licensing should be simple : you have how many people using this software ? It's this much."

But also what features are they using and how many servers / CPUs is not unreasonable to consider?

What was most unreasonable about Oracle licensing last time I had to use it (has this changed?) was that they refused to acknowledge non Oracle virtualisation. So if you installed say a one vCPU instance of Oracle on a vSphere cluster, as far as Oracle were concerned you had to license Oracle on every CPU in the cluster?! Madness.
