The media and entertainment industries are in disruption, with streaming content in the spotlight and the future of soundstage and in-studio production not yet known. But the show must go on. Rimini Street independent, third-party support services and comprehensive support solutions help media and entertainment clients save a substantial percentage of their IT software support budgets which can then be invested in strategic initiatives such as new content delivery systems and remote production capabilities.
Globalization and the intense battle for the best content mean the pressure is mounting to reimagine engagement and invest in transformational media and entertainment technologies. The burdens of software vendor policies, vendor-dictated roadmaps, and unresponsive support models, however, can create severe budget constraints. Rimini Street Support Services help media and entertainment clients save considerable time, money, and resources that can be reallocated to key digital innovation priorities to create differentiation and accelerate growth.
Content creation and distribution can be difficult when a software vendor is directing the support service storyline. Rimini Street application support and enterprise software solutions can maintain the current ERP release for up to 15 years, to help maximize ROI and avoid unnecessary, disruptive upgrades. This also provides time and flexibility to craft a Business-Driven IT Roadmap that aligns all IT spending with business goals like captivating loyal audiences and attracting new ones.
Many entertainment companies run lower-margin businesses, and their IT teams are in a daily war against costs. A penny saved per transaction, per process, per minute can result in millions of dollars to the bottom line of a media balance sheet. Rimini Street clients save 50% on annual support fees and up to 90% on total maintenance costs, liberating funds and IT staff for game-changing business pursuits, acquiring new subscribers, and delivering new entertainment experiences.
