For years (before Feb 3rd 2015) the number of 0.7893 meant something to those who are working on regular basis with licenses in Europe. This number is the ‘Current local Pricing Exchange rate’.

And Oracle is entitled to change this rate twice a year:


This rate remained rock solid for a whole lot of years, but Oracle has decided to change this rate at February 3th, 2015, and as a coincidence I noticed it was again changed at September 2019.

The new rate of the Euro is now 0.8981 (as of September 3rd 2019).

A few (unofficial) examples of the consequences:


Product license List price in dollars Old Euro price, before Feb 2015
New Euro price, as of Sep 2019
RDBMS EE proc 47.500 37.492 42.659
NUP 950 750 853
Diagnostic pack proc 7.500 5.920 6.736
NUP 150 118 135
Weblogic Suite proc 45.000 35.519 40.414
NUP 900 710 808

At least the prices in U.S.-dollars of the examples didn’t rise the last years…

When you feel the urge to take your calculator: this is an increase of 13.7%.
