According to Gartner’s Pat Phelan, midsize enterprises face budgetary and headcount challenges when supporting Oracle and SAP ERP solutions. Gartner is experiencing a steady increase of inquiries from Midmarket IT leaders about cancelling maintenance agreements with ERP vendors as they explore alternative Support options.

In a recent Gartner webinar entitled Should Midmarket Leaders Switch to Third-Party Support, Pat shared:

  1.  Reasons why increasingly more midsize enterprises that run SAP and Oracle are switching to third-party support
  2.  Alternative support options
  3.  Counsel on how to best understand the impact of cancelling software vendor support

Spinnaker Support customers range in size from relatively small to very large, with our largest customers accounting for the bulk of revenues.  However, more than two-thirds of our customers represent the midmarket, with revenues ranging from $100 million to $2.5 billion. Midmarket organizations are investigating and adopting third-party support significantly faster than bigger enterprises. Our customers tell us why:

  • The cost to stay current or migrate to the vendor’s cloud solution is prohibitive.
  • Paying fees to support unused licenses creates unnecessary cost pressures.
  • Larger enterprises often drive vendor roadmaps in directions not suitable for the midmarket.
  • Diminishing support attention and response, at higher cost, is no longer the only option.
  • A push to self-service strains internal resources that once received more personalized support from the vendor.
  • Midmarket enterprises are more nimble due to less IT clutter and complexity. Transition to a third-party is straightforward.
  • They value our expert and highly responsive services, delivered by a partner that addresses more of their service needs: software maintenance, managed services, and consulting.
