A global provider of enterprise software products and services and the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products, Rimini Street, Inc. announced that Fujitec Co., Ltd., a leading manufacturer of elevators and escalators swapped to Rimini Street support for its Oracle Database software.
Switching to Rimini helped Fujitec save upto 50% from what they had been paying Oracle for annual support fees, and they are also receiving Rimini Street’s more comprehensive, responsive support. For a minimum of additional 15 years, Fujitec can run its robust, stable Oracle Database 10.2 and 11.2 releases.
“When evaluating our overall IT budget, it was clear that Oracle’s annual maintenance and related costs for our Oracle Database landscape was a significant spend. When we evaluated Rimini Street support services, it became the obvious choice for us. We benefited from the immediate 50 percent reduction in our annual maintenance fees, labor savings from not having to perform release upgrades and additionally, we are now receiving more responsive and comprehensive support than what we had been receiving from Oracle,” said Kenji Tomooka, chief information officer, Information System Department, Fujitec Co. “With the cost savings realized by switching to Rimini Street, we have been able to fund other innovative IT projects. Our company has been successful migrating much of our IT infrastructure to the cloud and continuing our transformation toward a digital enterprise, while being able to keep applications we develop in-house on our core Oracle Database landscape.”
