Rimini Street, a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, has signed a new whole-of-government volume sourcing agreement with the Australian Government.
The deal has the potential to generate significant savings on enterprise software support for government, the company said.
The agreement is part of the government’s agenda to transform ICT procurement to make it simpler, clearer and faster for agencies and industry to transact services.
CEO of the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Agency, Randall Brugeaud, said the agreement with Rimini Street will make it easier and more cost effective for government agencies to access third-party software support for major software products.
“The Digital Transformation Agency continues to expand whole-of-government volume sourcing agreements to ensure that agencies have ready access to the best pricing, terms and conditions that leverage the buying power of government,” said Brugeaud.
“Government agencies of all sizes now have easier access to an affordable alternative for their enterprise software maintenance and more options to consider in support of the GovERP Initiative,” said Emmanuelle Hose, regional general manager for Australia and New Zealand, Rimini Street.
“This agreement provides an opportunity for government organisations to take back control of their IT roadmaps and drive innovation while lowering costs.”
Rimini Street already works with a number of government agencies in Australia, including the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, and the Victorian Government Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, among others.
