Oracle Corporation, (Nasdaq: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, has announced the introduction of the Software Investment Guide to give customers a simple, flexible and transparent view of its pricing and licensing. The Software Investment Guide is a global pricing initiative by Oracle to help current and prospective customers better understand and manage their enterprise-wide software costs. By releasing the Software Investment Guide, Oracle becomes the only major software vendor to provide comprehensive guidelines regarding its global software pricing and licensing.

The guide answers its customers' call for clear and easy-to-understand explanations of its pricing and licensing to help them do business more efficiently.
