Staying on SAP’s path to the cloud can be riskier than you think, even if you delay the move to SAP S/4HANA. The slow road to S/4HANA is problematic, while the fast road to S/4HANA has its own roadblocks. In reality, those are not the only choices. With third-party support from Rimini Street, you can cut the cost of ongoing support for SAP, reinvest the savings and avoid a forced migration to S/4HANA. Or you can use what you save with cost-effective, high-quality support to offset the expense of beginning the reimplementation of your ERP on S/4HANA – but at your own pace. Watch Rimini Street VP of Market Research Pat Phelan explain how to lower the cost and risk posed by SAP’s roadmap so you can focus on investments that drive competitive advantage.
Global Enterprises Drive Innovation with Hybrid IT Strategy
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.
