Public sector and government agencies have struggled with limited budgets and optimizing responses to citizen needs. Newer challenges like cybersecurity risks and rapidly changing taxpayer expectations signal that maintaining the status quo is not an option. Rimini Street independent, third-party support services and comprehensive support solutions help state and local governments maximize the value of current ERP systems, freeing up funds and personnel for digital transformation.
Government agencies scrutinize every taxpayer dollar spent, and recognize that optimizing costs is critically important. Significant savings on large IT expenditures such as enterprise software maintenance can translate into millions of dollars becoming available for new digital, compliance, and security initiatives to address evolving citizen needs. Rimini Street clients save 50% on annual software support fees and up to 90% on total support costs. To date they have saved over $5B.
Citizens want to interact with government digitally, at a time and place that’s convenient for them. The rapid evolution of technology is requiring government agencies to investigate how they can modernize public service. Implementing hybrid IT by "innovating around the edges" of core enterprise software systems with new cloud and digital technologies is one popular strategy that pragmatically speeds innovation and maximizes the value of prior investments. Rimini Street government clients enjoy the best of both worlds: the peace of mind of cost-effective, stable core platforms plus the ability to use savings from Rimini Street independent, third-party support to help fund and deploy newer technologies such as mobile, big data, analytics, social, and cloud components in a hybrid landscape.
Emerging technologies such as AI, blockchain, and the cloud are becoming increasingly integral to government business and public interaction. Government organizations that want to transform to cloud/SaaS models face two critical roadblocks: funding and financing. Rimini Street enterprise software solutions can help free up funds and resources to enable a cloud journey for greater preparedness and agility in delivering critical public services.

As SAP annual maintenance fees rise, the value that licensees gain from the original vendor support model is decreasing. To balance the equation, many SAP licensees are moving from vendor software support to third-party support for SAP. In this comprehensive ROI analysis of 200 Rimini Street clients, you’ll learn about real business outcomes from making the switch as reported by clients and supported by hard data. The data has been reviewed and verified by two independent analyst firms. This report, prepared by Valoir Research, validates the significant savings SAP licensees can experience in the following areas: SAP annual maintenance fees: Break/fix support and tax, legal and regulatory updates Upgrade burdens: The cost and labor of forced upgrades just to stay fully supported when vendor mainstream support windows end Customization support gaps: The cost of supporting customizations that break and are not covered under the standard vendor support model Self-support costs: The cost of additional resources and headcount required to deal with inefficiencies of vendor support, including regression testing, evaluation of hundreds of fixes, issue justification and self-service support Download your complimentary copy of the report for takeaways and insights to help you build a business case for SAP third-party support.
