Join Hundreds of SAP Customers Who Are Taking Rimini Street
Whether your ultimate destination is S/4HANA, an alternative modern application, or you haven't settled on a future platform, Rimini Street is your smart path forward. Rimini Street supports customers running SAP on all major releases, including S/4HANA, as well as customers planning an eventual reimplementation onto S/4HANA in the future after a smooth transition back to SAP.
When people think about maintenance costs their primary focus is on the annual maintenance fee which only represents the tip of the iceberg. When you start looking below the water line, you find a lot of wasted dollars that are eating up your precious IT budget.
At Rimini Street, we cut your annual maintenance cost to half the amount you initially spend with SAP. The other costs below the water line go away and you end saving three-fourths of your total cost of maintenance.
Take those savings and invest in innovative and agile solutions including new cloud and internally deployed applications such as mobility, Big Data, or other new projects that your business dictates as a result of your changing environment.
Rimini Street provides a MORE RESPONSIVE, premium level of service and SEVERAL ADDITIONAL SERVICE FEATURES not included with SAP's standard annual support program.
Every client is assigned a named, Primary Support Engineer, or PSE, to be your single point of contact, unlike SAP where you are routed through book-trained technicians and multiple escalation paths before finding a resource who can help. Rimini Street only has senior engineers and does not use a "tiered" call center model at all.
Rimini Street receives roughly 30,000 cases a year. 65% of those cases are related to custom code (ABAP customizations and Z-Programs), interfaces, integrations or performance tuning. These customization issues are not resolved by SAP as they only focus on the base software. Rimini Street provides support for customizations at no additional charge.

Rimini Street helps SAP customers mitigate the cost and risk of their SAP application strategy in the short and long term, freeing up your money, your people and your time to invest in innovation now to drive sustainable competitive advantage - whether you choose to implement S/4HANA now or defer the decision to a later date.
This strategy gives you the flexibility to evaluate S/4HANA over time relative to the ECC capabilities you have today. If and when it makes sense, you can easily return to SAP, or if S/4HANA does not meet expectations or there is a better fit solution available, you avoided making a wrong decision and are positioned to move forward successfully.
ERP today needs to transform and add support for mobile, analytics, and social - not just provide process transactions. But SAP can't innovate fast enough: they acquire yesterday's innovators while the real innovators have long moved on to new ways of delivering real value. Instead of paying SAP maintenance fees for functionality you are not likely to use, you can add real value to your business by using the budget you've been spending on constant ERP software upgrades to do what you've always wanted to do but never had the time or money to do: continue to grow and modify your ERP system to best serve the true business needs of your organization.
The funds you save with Rimini Street support can give you the budgetary boost to add innovative cloud apps and services to your organization - the things that will actually help you grow your business and increase operational efficiency.
