Mexico is Key Strategic Expansion in Latin America

With the second-largest economy in Latin America, Mexico is a key part
of Rimini Street’s strategic expansion plans in the region. The
Company’s team in Mexico will focus on supporting and expanding its
growing list of more than 100 clients with operations in Mexico, from
global organizations to local enterprises. To further bolster its
capabilities in the country, the Company has hired new marketing, sales
and service delivery engineers. Rimini Street Mexico will be led by Edenize
, Rimini Street’s general manager of Latin America who has
overseen the Company’s operations in the region since 2015 from the
Company’s Latin America regional headquarters in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Helping CIOs Take Control of IT Roadmap

According to Gartner1, ERP software revenue in Mexico is
forecasted to grow to $295.2 million in 2019, an 11.37% increase over
2018. CIOs in Mexico, like their counterparts around the world, must
optimize IT spending, improve competitive advantage and drive growth.
However, industry analysts maintain that for many organizations, as much
as 90% of overall IT budgets are spent on daily operating costs, leaving
as little as 10% of IT budgets to invest in strategic initiatives that
create competitive advantage and enable growth.

Switching to Rimini Street support from software vendor support can
significantly reduce the proportion of IT budget that is spent on daily
operating costs, enabling organizations to reallocate much more of the
IT budget for investments in innovation. Clients that switch to Rimini
Street third-party support are also freed from the vendor-mandated
roadmaps of expensive and recurring forced upgrades, migrations and
vendor lock-in. With this shift, CIOs can take back control of their IT
roadmap and investment strategy.

“Now, more than ever, CIOs in Mexico are challenged with optimizing
their IT spend and investing more to drive competitive advantage and
growth. Rimini Street has the products, services, strategies and
experience to help Mexican organizations achieve these critical business
goals,” said Ms. Maron. “Today, we are already a trusted partner to more
than 100 clients operating in Mexico who are leveraging a better
alternative to high-cost, low-value SAP and Oracle support programs, and
we are looking forward to helping many more Mexican organizations take
the necessary steps that will put them back in control of their own IT
