SAN FRANCISCO - Tuesday, September 24th 2013 [ME NewsWire]
Oracle OpenWorld 2013
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rimini Street, Inc., the leading third-party maintenance and support provider for enterprise software, including SAP AG’s (NYSE:SAP) Business Suite and BusinessObjects software and Oracle Corporation’s (NYSE:ORCL) Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, E-Business Suite, Oracle Database, Hyperion and Oracle Retail software, today announced significant year-over-year growth for its Rimini Street Support for Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Technology product lines. Annual revenue for the Oracle E-Business Suite product line increased by nearly 400 percent and the number of clients tripled since last year’s Oracle OpenWorld 2012 conference. Rimini Street also quadrupled the number of Oracle Technology clients, including Oracle Database and Oracle Middleware clients, in the past 12 months.
Demand Increases for Rimini Street’s Innovative Support for Oracle Applications
Demand for Rimini Street third-party support has grown significantly among Oracle licensees across all Rimini Street Support for Oracle product lines. In the past 12 months, Rimini Street nearly tripled new client invoicing across all Oracle product lines. This accelerated growth related to Oracle products has been driven by an increase in demand from Oracle licensees and larger overall deal sizes, including the signing of large seven-figure annual fee deals across the Oracle product lines in the past year.
In addition to significant savings in annual maintenance and support costs, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Database and Hyperion licensees are switching to Rimini Street for its innovative, premium-level service, which includes a named Primary Support Engineer (PSE) assigned to each client, 24x7x365 support coverage, 30-minute guaranteed response times, support for customizations at no additional fee and support for a minimum of 10 years for existing releases without required upgrades. Many clients benefit further by redirecting their significant savings in annual maintenance fees to fund strategic initiatives for the business and innovate around the edges of their existing software applications.
