Why Read This Report

The popularity of Oracle and SAP software is clear. All you need to see is their long client list and substantial revenues to know they are giants in the technology marketplace. But their high software maintenance costs regularly invoke inquiry calls at Forrester, as their customers question whether they are genuinely getting value for money — or simply filling Oracle's and SAP's ever deeper pockets. Both vendors generate billions of dollars per year from maintenance, so it's no surprise to see them take legal action when a third party seeks to disrupt the status quo and take some of this highly profitable business away from them. One such third party, Rimini Street, has become a market leader in this space by offering to cut Oracle and SAP maintenance costs by 50%. This document explores whether you should be evaluating the use of Rimini Street and other similar vendors.
