“Our strong fiscal 2016 Q2 results are a reflection of the global market’s fast-growing, accelerating demand for Rimini Street’s ultra-responsive, premium level enterprise software support services. We over-achieved against our fiscal 2016 Q2 new and renewal sales plan, and all of our service delivery operational metrics,” said Seth Ravin, Rimini Street CEO. “IT budgets remain largely flat to only single-digit growth, and CIO’s need to cut excessive spending on ERP systems to free up additional budget funds for innovation that will enable growth, while at the same time obtaining more comprehensive, relevant and value-driven ERP system support. Rimini Street is meeting this market demand with support solutions for Oracle and SAP products that reduce a licensee’s total maintenance costs by up to 90%, while providing a breadth of premium support services and responsiveness that far exceeds that of standard software vendor maintenance offerings.”
