“Selecting Rimini Street support for SAP system applications with our Microsoft SQL Server database including basis administration, maintenance of customizations and upgrade flexibility was the right decision for us to make,” said Marcos Adam, CIO, Rodobens, a group of Brazilian companies that operates a singular business model with strong synergy and presence in automotive, financial services, real estate and corporate communications solutions. “Our enterprise software products are robust and very stable, and will continue to meet our business needs for the foreseeable future. With Rimini Street, we receive a highly responsive, integrated service offering from a single provider. We also benefit from significant savings in comparison to what we were spending with the software vendor.”

“According to Gartner Research, Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and SAP are the top four database software vendors by market share, representing nearly 83% of the total global database market combined1. The addition of these six additional database products from IBM, Microsoft and SAP to our growing portfolio of supported enterprise software products, gives even more enterprise software licensees the opportunity to leverage Rimini Street’s award-winning support, to enjoy a more robust, relevant and responsive support model, and to liberate substantial funds that can be re-directed to strategic growth initiatives,” said Seth Ravin, Rimini Street CEO. “Today’s announcement further executes on our plan to broaden our product coverage portfolio, expand our service capabilities, and increase our service footprint with clients.”
