Business leaders are placing increasingly greater demands on IT to support strategic priorities such as digital transformation and new business models. Delivering technology innovation for the business can carry a hefty price tag both in terms of funding and resources. Free up people, time, and money for digital transformation projects that create competitive advantage and drive growth.
“Keeping the lights on” is no longer enough but doing so can consume as much as 90% of IT budgets. It’s not surprising that capital for innovation is seemingly always scarce. Short of securing new budget, which is a challenge for most IT organizations, IT leaders must juggle resources to fund strategic technology initiatives that will move the business forward. Switching to Rimini Street can save an immediate 50% on annual support fees and up to 90% on total support costs for ERP and database software. Making the switch means IT is free from the burden of software vendor support costs and can direct liberated funds and resources toward revenue-generating strategic growth initiatives for the enterprise.

As marketing, sales and product teams identify ways to achieve competitive differentiation, grow market share and increase customer loyalty, they often require new applications or services, which they expect to get from IT.
