Life continues to be busy in the Oracle business stream with a focus on responding to requests for software quotes and preparations for the software support renewal exercise in October. The time invested in influencing the 2017-2018 Oracle Higher Education Price List is likely to pay off in September with the release of an expanded set of products on the List, including cloud-based applications. A survey of the HES-Oracle Consortium members continued with further interviews planned for the ACT and NSW. The results of the survey will be presented to the HES Board in December and become the basis for activity in 2018. Work progressed on the renewal of the HES-Oracle contract with a legal review of the Oracle contract templates, HES’s negotiating position clarified and a university-based advisory group established. If you would like further information, or have any questions, please contact Wendy Jones on firstname.lastname@example.org.
