Top Cost Reduction Strategies for Oracle and SAP Software
Analyst Advice for Taking Back Control of your IT Budget - And How Third-Party Support Can Help

Duration: 60 minutes

80% of the typical IT budget is spent just maintaining current IT operations and systems. This leaves little budget left over to drive innovation or support new requirements, putting IT leaders at risk of falling behind the business and becoming less relevant.

Oracle and SAP costs represent a large portion of that 80%, including expensive annual support fees, costly upgrades just to stay supported, large consulting contingents, related hardware costs, hosting services and other expenses. Today, smart IT leaders are questioning the value they get from the traditional enterprise software business model but aren't sure what to do about it.

Join Constellation's Principal Analyst & CEO, R "Ray" Wang and Rimini Street's President Sebastian Grady as they explore key strategies and techniques for addressing the huge enterprise software cost burden. Also included is a brief review of third-party support, a cost reduction strategy which can help you cut your total cost of maintenance for Oracle and SAP by up to 90%.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What running Oracle and SAP means for your IT budget
  • How to calculate your total cost of maintenance
  • How to evaluate the ROI of a potential upgrade
  • How a "cartel" of industry players creates systemic pressure to force change in your systems
  • How third-party support can reduce your total cost of maintenance
