Valoir Report: Third-Party Support Goes Mainstream

This resource is published by Rimini Street


Adoption of third-party support for enterprise software is now mainstream. In a report sponsored by Rimini Street, industry research firm Valoir analyzed the growing acceptance of third-party support, finding that demand is widespread — from cost-cutters to innovators to a variety of companies in-between. Valoir found that in some instances, even ERP vendors reluctantly acknowledge the utility of third-party support as they focus efforts on the cloud.

Third-party support has evolved into a strategic portfolio management tool for enterprise applications, gaining broader strategic acceptance from its origins as a cost containment tactic. Valoir found that its versatility facilitates:

  • Innovation around the edges of a mature, highly functional ERP system
  • Maximizing value from existing investments
  • Taking a measured approach to cloud evolution
  • Digital transformation

Tactically, independent, third-party software support helps CIOs save resources and keep IT teams engaged with new initiatives rather than routine support. Strategically, it helps CIOs meet business objectives, demonstrate value, and move to a Business-Driven Roadmap from one dictated by an ERP vendor.

In its report, Valoir specifically recognized Rimini Street for its:

  • Breadth of knowledge and depth of support, featuring a dedicated engineer model
  • Pure focus on independent, third-party support versus other IT or consulting services
  • Track record of strong client relationships
  • Value, service, price
