Oracle has changed the Exchange rate of the Euro to 0.8682

0

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:

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:
