Ultra-Responsive, Premium Software Support Services for the UK Public Sector
Rimini Street has an established client base among UK public sector organizations ranging from central government departments to local authorities and public sector bodies. Switching to Rimini Street support from software vendor support can significantly reduce the proportion of IT budget that is spent on daily operating costs, enabling public sector organizations to reallocate much more of the IT budget for investments in innovation. Clients that switch to Rimini Street third-party support are also freed from the vendor-mandated roadmaps of expensive and recurring forced upgrades, migrations and vendor lock-in. With this shift, CIOs can take back control of their IT roadmap and investment strategy.
"Rimini Street has been serving the unique needs of UK government clients for years, and we are delighted to be named a supplier for UK G-Cloud 11," said Mark Armstrong, general manager, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Rimini Street. "With the urgency to reduce IT operating costs and deliver innovation and digital transformation within a constrained budget, along with the challenges and uncertainties surrounding Brexit, Rimini Street can help UK Public Sector organizations drive significant cost savings, continue leveraging their stable and valuable existing Oracle and SAP applications without any forced, costly vendor-mandated upgrades or migrations for at least an additional 15 years, and use the savings to fund business transformation."
