Onboarding and Archiving: A Smooth Start for Future Success
Thousands of organizations have successfully transitioned from vendor support to Rimini Street. The proven methodology is tailored to each client, helping ensure rightful access to software entitlements and setting up effective communications to maximize the value of their Rimini Street relationship.
“The onboarding process was easy. The best benefit is the direct line of contact you get through Rimini Street — the Primary Support Engineer model. Having somebody you can go to directly, even when the issue could be with a customization or an interconnected system, gives us a lot of confidence that we can focus on our day jobs without worrying about keeping our systems running.”
“The onboarding process was very organized and extremely well-orchestrated. We had a few minor hiccups, but Rimini Street was more than willing to work with us to resolve them, and that’s key to us —how do the companies you work with respond when there is a problem? Rimini Street takes on ownership of the entire support experience. All of our processes are mature and overall support has been great.”
“One of our goals was to become more flexible in our PeopleSoft applications’ upgrade strategy to be able to decide when and how we upgrade these tools. By archiving the PeopleSoft updates we were already entitled to, we were able to complete an upgrade while on independent support — and do it on our own timeline. If we want to upgrade in the future, that’s a choice we can make without outside pressure.”

A Smart Path to Holistic SAP Security
Malicious parties are constantly searching for new ways to breach enterprise systems and put your valuable data at risk. SAP announces new patches each month on Patch Tuesday. Hack Wednesday is when hackers go on the attack assuming security teams haven’t implemented those patches. And those patches usually only address vulnerabilities that have been identified by the good guys, not the ones that the bad guys are exploiting, zero-day attacks, or other sophisticated attacks. If you’re still relying solely on vendor patches to protect your mission critical SAP assets, you could be putting your data at risk. To fully understand the risks of a patch management strategy alone, read this e-book. In the e-book, you’ll learn: Why vendor patches don’t address all vulnerabilities The benefits of a layered security, defense-in-depth approach Solutions for implementing layered security to protect against zero-day attacks Comparison of a layered security model against SAP patching alone
