Oracle had previously taken Rimini to court for copyright infringement of its software as a result of Rimini offering third party support, but its action for “willful” infringement was rejected by the court.

Seth Ravin, Rimini Street CEO, said: “We continue to see strong, growing global demand for Rimini Street’s support services and solutions that can save clients up to 90 percent in operating costs over a decade.”

He said: “In 2016, Rimini Street plans to continue its aggressive investment in new markets, new services and expanded global sales and service capabilities, with a relentless continued focus and commitment to deliver the best support value and service available in the marketplace.”

Rimini Street clients include more than 125 Fortune 500 and Fortune Global 100 companies.
