White Paper: Procurement’s Lead Role in Reducing Oracle Database Spend

Many Oracle Database customers like their products but are frustrated with the poor value and limitations they can experience with Oracle support. Fortunately, their procurement teams can help.

In a recent Rimini Street survey,1 97% of respondents (Oracle Database licensee IT organizations) report that the cost of Oracle Database is one of their top challenges; and nearly 83% feel that costs for Oracle Database support and maintenance are excessive, or that they are paying too much.

In that same survey, 73% of Oracle Database licensee respondents report that they do not feel they are getting enough valuable database enhancements from Oracle; and more than a quarter report not receiving any valuable Oracle Database enhancements at all.

Procurement professionals are in a unique position to help their IT organizations by considering independent, third-party enterprise software support. Third-party support delivers fast, comprehensive, high-touch services ─ including support for customizations; cloud advisory services; and global tax, legal, and regulatory updates, all at no extra charge ─ at a savings of up to 90% on total support and maintenance costs.

With independent, third-party support, the IT resources saved (both budget and time of staff) can be quickly reallocated to strategic innovation projects.
