Retail is immensely competitive. And margins are tight. Those are givens. To gain an advantage, retailers must make digital transformation a priority. But with 80 to 90 percent of a typical IT budget committed to operating existing systems, where will the IT innovation funding come from? Retailers who are early adopters of third-party enterprise software support have unlocked innovation funding by freeing up their precious resources: avoiding unnecessary ERP vendor upgrades, and letting overpriced vendor maintenance contracts expire. These retailers also follow a Business-Driven Roadmap that aligns all IT spending with business priorities, not vendor priorities. Taking these strategic, fundamental savings steps unshackles valuable IT resources-both budget and staff-for more critical initiatives such as: improving loyalty programs and delivery systems, enhancing customer service through artificial intelligence, integrating mobile technologies into the shopping experience, and even trying out robots in the warehouse.

“The breadth of experience that Rimini Street brings has definitely mitigated risk for T-Mobile.
The strength of the Rimini Street team made it possible to support the significant customizations that SAP struggled to handle. We get everything and more that we had from SAP at half the cost — it really was an unassailable proposal!
It became very clear that moving to a third-party support provider offered a compelling alternative for us.”
“Because we’ve had, and continue to have, such a positive support experience through Rimini Street for our PeopleSoft HCM software, the decision to add Oracle EBS support was much easier.”David Jamieson Financial Applications Manager
“We knew an upgrade was going to be very labor intensive. It was going to cost us a fair amount of money, tie up our EnterpriseOne experts and, in the end, it would not have brought any added value. What we have experienced with independent support is the freedom to take on tasks that actually serve our business and are a value-add while retaining the ability to upgrade if we choose to in the future.”Ernie Spardy VP IT
“We turned to independent support to help reduce costs and improve service. With a virtual patching strategy recommended by Rimini Street Global Security Services, we found we could also significantly boost database security and reduce overall risk.”Ron Traub Senior Operations Manager
