Rimini Street Increases Investment in Latin America, Appoints Industry Veteran to Lead Market Expansion

New leadership and investment strengthens capabilities to meet the growing demand for SAP and Oracle independent maintenance across the region

LAS VEGAS and SAO PAULO, August 19, 2015 Rimini Street, Inc., the leading global independent provider of enterprise software support services for SAP SE’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, today announced that Edenize Maron has been appointed general manager, Latin America. In this newly created role, Maron will lead the continued growth and development of this fast-growing region, and will oversee all sales and delivery of Rimini Street support services in Latin America.

With over 19 years in the IT industry, Maron has proven experience in leading enterprise software sales, service and development operations. She has held senior leadership positions at SAP, where she served in several executive roles, including sales director, CRM products, Latin America, and most recently as country manager, Portugal. Maron also held a senior leadership position with Progress Software, where she served as country manager, Brazil & South America. Immediately prior to joining Rimini Street, Maron served as the vice president for Southern Latin America at Software AG.

“The Latin America market is increasingly discontent with the current ERP business model presented by enterprise software vendors – namely the high cost of annual maintenance, the high cost to upgrade and being forced to upgrade their stable systems – and is looking for ways to invest in innovative technologies that will help grow their business versus continuing to over-spend on vendor maintenance for the core transaction systems,” said Maron. “With Rimini Street, clients can save up to 90 percent on their total maintenance costs, take back control of their ERP systems, choose if and when to invest in an upgrade, and choose where they will invest the savings from a switch to Rimini Street support.”
