Cloud is a dominant force in enterprise software today. Moving data and workloads to cloud-based environments can drive competitive advantage, particularly by helping enterprises meet changing customer demands and enable new processes. Despite their popularity, cloud systems may not be the optimal strategic solution for entire IT landscapes. In many cases, internally deployed, customized ERP systems are robust and highly-functional, and there is no business case to move them to the cloud. Creating a hybrid IT strategy then becomes a smart path to optimizing IT budgets, choosing best-of-breed SaaS solutions, and accelerating digital transformation. To help fund these hybrid IT solutions, many organizations are switching from software vendor support to independent, third-party support, saving up to 90% on total maintenance costs and redirecting scarce IT budget dollars to innovation. In this informative e-book, you’ll meet five Rimini Street clients that are executing a hybrid IT strategy facilitated by third-party support, reallocating savings to initiatives such as: Low-code application development New marketing programs Rollout of electronic data interchange (EDI) for e-commerce Development of a cloud-based information technology service management (ITSM) application Freeing up IT staff for new projects Find out more about the benefits of third-party support for hybrid IT solutions.

Many Oracle JD Edwards customers share the same concerns: they are getting less new value from Oracle today than they received in the past, and are caught in an expensive cycle of paying Oracle nearly 22% of the license fee per year in maintenance costs — essentially repurchasing their existing legacy software every five years. What has greatly impacted many JDE licensees is Oracle having no new major release on its roadmap for either JD Edwards World or JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and only extending full support for the latest releases — until April 2025 for World A9.4 and until December 2031 for EnterpriseOne 9.2.1 Rather than developing major new releases, Oracle has instituted a continuous release strategy through enterprise software updates (ESUs), which may or may not include valuable, new functionality for individual licensees. Implementing the ESUs can be expensive and labor-intensive, consuming even more critical enterprise resources that are needed for growth, and forcing painful funding tradeoffs. Fortunately, Oracle JD Edwards customers can skip the ESUs, save up to 90% on total software maintenance costs, and drive digital transformation with Rimini Street third-party support. In this e-book, you’ll meet five JDE licensees who regained control of their IT roadmaps by partnering with Rimini Street. They received comprehensive, engineer-led service and invested their significant support savings into strategic initiatives such as: improving efficiencies through the use of mobile hardware and applications developing advanced web portal capabilities for customers and consultants increasing funding for a subscription engine, a product data model, an HR system, and several e-commerce platforms reinvesting funds into business intelligence and master data platforms To learn more about how to stop paying excessive support fees and start funding innovation, read the eBook today. 1 JD Edwards Premier Support and Continuous Delivery FAQ
