The education industry is in disruption, with remote learning thrust to the forefront and the long-term future of conventional, on-campus programs not yet known. Rimini Street independent, third-party support helps educators save considerable IT funds which can then be used to continue advancing the educational mission through investment in digital transformation.
Keeping education standards high while reducing overall spend can be challenging. Traditional student and enrollment models — and delivery systems — continue to shift, making it increasingly important to manage institutional IT investments in learning equitably and effectively. Rimini Street enterprise software services and application support expertise for the education industry can substantially reduce costs, free up resources, and help institutions from K-12 to higher education continue to focus on student achievement and educational attainment.
Rimini Street education clients avoid expensive and disruptive upgrades to mission-critical applications through guaranteed support of the current ERP implementation for at least 15 years.

Complacency and reactive efforts can leave institutions behind in today’s challenging and ever-evolving education marketplace. Flexibility, adaptability, and strategic planning will be led by IT, and maximizing innovation opportunities is key to success. Rimini Street helps education clients liberate resources for higher-purpose technology endeavors through expert, efficient application support. To date, many global educational institutions from K-12 to higher education have directed savings from Rimini Street third-party support to essential strategic initiatives.

“I can’t think of any organization that does not want to save software maintenance support costs. To also get customizations supported is a huge bonus. In this case, it has meant that IT has been able to retain the essential talent it needs in order to build the tools that help its 580,000 students get the education they need.”Joel Gibbons IT Director
Many PeopleSoft customers share the same concern-they feel they are receiving less new value from Oracle than they did in the past. They may also be caught in an expensive cycle of paying Oracle nearly 22% per year in maintenance fees, essentially repurchasing their existing software license every five years.

Free up IT capacity by securing support for your existing PeopleSoft release (including customizations) up to 15 years, without forced upgrades or continuous updates? Accelerate growth now, improve the speed and quality of IT’s response to business needs; and stop paying for-and waiting for-unknown future software innovations? With Rimini Street independent, third-party support for PeopleSoft software, you can—just as eight featured PeopleSoft customers have as they extended the lives of their ERP investments, freed up IT teams for critical projects, and funded new innovation and growth initiatives.
