Top UK Manufacturer Successfully Expands and Upgrades Global SAP Footprint under Rimini Street Support
TT Electronics Continues to Enhance SAP Landscape with Independent Support
LAS VEGAS - December 17, 2014 - Rimini Street, Inc., the leading independent provider of enterprise software support for SAP AG's (NYSE: SAP) Business Suite and BusinessObjects software and Oracle Corporation's (NYSE: ORCL) Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, E-Business Suite, Oracle Database, Oracle Middleware, Hyperion and Oracle Retail software, today announced that TT Electronics plc has successfully upgraded its SAP environment while under Rimini Street support. Since switching from SAP support to Rimini Street in 2012, the United Kingdom-based global electronics company has continued to expand its ERP footprint across three continents and purchased additional user licenses from SAP. Recently, the company completed its upgrade from SAP R/3 4.6 to ECC 6.0 while under Rimini Street support.
"Rimini Street was extremely helpful in supporting us through our SAP upgrade," said TT Electronics Chief Information Officer Ed Heffernan. "With the expert advice and guidance they provided throughout our multiple complex upgrades, including a successful archiving process to make sure we had all the required software components and documentation from SAP that we were entitled to, Rimini Street has played a critical role in helping drive improvement through our SAP landscape to support our business requirements."
Global Tech Manufacturer Turns to Rimini Street during SAP Upgrade, Expansion
In 2012, TT Electronics upgraded all aspects of its SAP infrastructure, switching primary support from SAP to Rimini Street, while also upgrading its multiple SAP implementations to ECC 6.0. Immediately after switching to Rimini Street for support of its ECC 6.0 system, TT Electronics was able to redirect significant savings from annual SAP support fees to more meaningful investments that expanded and improved its SAP footprint, including procuring additional licenses from SAP, adding more divisions to the platform and developing consistent SAP processes and security standards across three continents.
“Though it may sound counterintuitive, switching from SAP to Rimini Street support actually enabled TT Electronics to better extend and optimize our use of SAP software on a global basis,” added Heffernan. “We are now far better positioned to tackle our next innovation needs.”
"More than 100 clients, like TT Electronics, have successfully performed upgrades within their existing Oracle or SAP applications while benefiting from Rimini Street's premium service model and significant cost savings," said Seth Ravin, Rimini Street CEO. "Our clients have continued innovating with their Oracle and SAP applications, including purchasing additional licenses from the vendors, rolling out new modules, expanding geographic coverage and upgrading when and if it meets their business objectives. With nearly 900 signed clients around the world, including more than 100 Fortune 500 and Global Fortune 100 companies, Rimini Street remains committed to helping its clients achieve optimal value and return from their existing Oracle and SAP investments."
