Cornwall councillor suggests authority paid £2m for Oracle licences that no one used on contract originally worth £4m


"It was a requirement that the Council was licensed for Oracle Cloud throughout development and implementation phases, and this is standard practice"

This certainly isn't my experience. If you are migrating from Oracle on-prem to cloud they will give you one solution "for free" until the migration is complete - so you are not paying twice.

They actually use this in their sales pitch versus moving to one of their competitors.
