Mythics signs $293.2m USAF deal for Oracle products and services
The US Air Force (USAF) has awarded a $293.2m enterprise software licence agreement (ESLA) to Mythics for Oracle products and services.
The agreement means USAF will now have access to Mythics License Orchestrator (MLO) as a centralised enterprise portal to effectively manage its portfolio of Oracle products.
Mythics federal sales executive vice-president Paul Seifert said: "The Air Force award is an acknowledgement of Mythics' expertise in providing our customers with Oracle products and technologies to support their mission.
"We are honoured to support the proud men and women across the Air Force, providing cost effective Oracle information technology solutions to help secure the United States and keep America safe."
Mythics' customers will be able to efficiently manage enterprise-wide agreements using the MLO 3.1 IT asset management and reporting tool.
The MLO will allow USAF users to order through online forms accessible by desktop and mobile devices.
It is also said to offer customisable validation and approvals via a robust workflow management process and system.
USAF's MLO serves as a centralised repository for all contacts, documentation, and deliverables associated with the contract.
The ESLA is expected to reduce costs by streamlining the procurement of Oracle technologies, and will enable the USAF to realise Oracle's full potential through effective tracking, deployment and utilisation.
It is also said to provide an unlimited licence agreement for a core set of Oracle technology products, including Oracle Cloud and a catalogue with established discounts for Oracle core technology products throughout the duration of the contract.
The ESLA will allow improvements in Oracle licence management, provide access to the MilCloud and other cloud service providers, allow use of Air Force Oracle software in the joint environment, and replace multiple Oracle products that are approaching the end of their serviceable life.
