Technology Support Services Extends the Life Span of Oracle and SAP
Software vendors provide a short number of years in which full support
with tax, legal and regulatory updates is available for a particular
release of their software and drive mandatory upgrades. Consequently,
software vendors have no strategic focus on maximizing the life span of
each release. Rimini Street, on the other hand, is exclusively focused
on maximizing the life span and ROI for existing client software
releases. Rimini Street now guarantees clients a minimum of 15 years of
full support on any enterprise software release in use when they switch
to Rimini Street support, with no required upgrades or migrations.
Rimini Street also will extend the 15-year minimum support guarantee to
any newer release(s) the client "stores on the shelf" for a potential
future upgrade, if an upgrade is ever desired.

releases from challenges caused by ever-changing infrastructure and IT
