On the Radar: Rimini Street — Third-party support and maintenance for SAP and Oracle platforms
In this report Ovum confirms Rimini Street is squarely on the radar in any evaluation of Third-party support and maintenance for SAP and Oracle platforms. For most of ERP’s history there has been no alternative to paying maintenance and support at vendor specified rates in what was essentially a monopoly market.
Third-party maintenance has emerged as an appropriate solution for a wide range of situations, including platform transitions, stable legacy installations past the maintenance expiry date, and when the enterprise determines that major upgrades or additions are not likely to add significant value. The size of Rimini Street’s installed base and growth in recent years attest to the applicability of its service offerings.
