For years 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 the last couple of years, but Oracle has decided to change this rate at February 3th, 2015.

The new rate of the Euro is now 0.8682.

A few (unofficial) examples of the consequences:


Product license List price in dollars Old Euro price
New Euro price
RDBMS EE proc 47.500 37.492 41.240
NUP 950 750 825
Diagnostic pack proc 7.500 5.920 6.512
NUP 150 118 130
Weblogic Suite proc 45.000 35.519 39.069
NUP 900 710 781


When you feel the urge to take your calculator: this is an increase of 10%.
