Rimini Street invests in growing A/NZ demand for Oracle & SAP

02 Nov 2016

Due to accelerated demand with Rimini Street’s enterprise software support for Oracle and SAP licensees, the company is looking to grow its investments in Australia and New Zealand.  

In order to meet these growing demands, the company has expanded its presence into the region with the opening of its new opening in Melbourne.

Tanya Whiteing, acting CIO at George Weston Foods, says SAP is a critical system.

“Engaging Rimini Street has enabled GWF to substantially lower the ongoing cost of ownership for our on-premises SAP applications,” she explains.

“This will allow us to pass direct savings to the business as well as to fund new innovation.”

As well as a huge increase in the number of signed clients, Rimini Street has also achieved a 78% revenue growth across all of its Oracle product lines for the 12-month period ending September 30, 2016.

The company first opened its Sydney headquarters in 2008, and today supports a total of 88 global organisations with operations in both Australia and New Zealand.

Clients in the region include Betfair, ActewAGL, The New Zealand Refining Company, Murrin Murrin Operations, and Viva Energy Australia.

Andrew Powell, managing director for Rimini Street APAC and Middle East, says this year has seen a spike in client demand not only from commercial entities but also government organisations across Australia and New Zealand.

“As the market matures and organisations become increasingly canny about their IT spend, we find that many CIOs are simply not willing to pay high vendor maintenance fees anymore,” he explains.

“By switching to Rimini Street support, these businesses can save up to 90% of their total cost of maintenance and reinvest their savings in areas of strategic importance instead of continuing to spend needlessly on ongoing operations.”
