Impact of BREXIT on Oracle price list in the UK
Posted by John Hallas on July 7, 2016
I saw this from an Oracle account manager who I deal with.
Oracle’s regional price lists are based on a constant Dollar based price list, and these are usually recalculated at the beginning of each financial quarter. Given the recent sharp decline in the £ against the $, I’m expecting an increase of roughly 15% for Oracle’s next financial quarter, beginning September.
For illustration, a single Oracle DB EE license has a current GBP list price of £31,597. Based on the constant Dollar price list and today’s exchange rates, this price should be £36,862.
I am sure the rate will stabilise soon but it is yet another indicator of the impact of allowing the masses to decide on national matters. Needless to say I voted REMAIN. I also suspect that if we had the vote again it would be 60% in favour of staying – but alas too late now
