“As a public school district, we are constantly assessing ways to reduce costs in order to put that money back into the classrooms and other investments that help our students in their educational pursuits,” said Gautam Sethi, chief technology officer at Douglas County School District. “One of our most expensive contracts was for Oracle EBS and database products, and after speaking to several organizations that had already moved to independent support, we concluded that switching to Rimini Street was the smart strategy for us. They deliver exactly what we need – mission-critical support and better service – while dramatically cutting our annual ERP and database maintenance budgets in half and enabling the school district to get far more value out of its IT budget.”
Savings from Maintenance Budget to Help Drive Key Initiatives
The Douglas County School District is responsible for the education of over 67,000 students in 86 K-12 schools, and employs more than 7,500 employees. In 2014, the school district reported nearly 89% graduation rates, one of the highest in the Denver Metro Area. In response to concerted efforts to curb costs and achieve greater efficiency from their ERP landscape, Douglas County School District decided to switch from Oracle to Rimini Street for support of the organization’s existing Oracle EBS application, as well as the Oracle Database product.
As a result of making the switch, Douglas County School District slashed annual maintenance costs in half, but more importantly, avoided an expensive and potentially disruptive forced upgrade to EBS R12 which would have cost the District $3.5 million. They are redirecting the savings towards delivering a new platform that will allow the district to view data holistically across all aspects, from its students and teachers, to the budget and facilities, in order to help better inform district managers and decision-makers.
Douglas County School District also enjoys much higher levels of service than it received from the vendor, including 24x7x365 support from a named, local Primary Support Engineer (PSE), support for its highly customized application at no additional cost, as well as guaranteed support for up to 15 years on their existing Oracle ERP products.
“Through the passion and dedication of its talented educators and pioneering leaders, Douglas County School District has made it possible for thousands of students to succeed in the college or career path of their choice. Rimini Street is proud to be a partner to this organization and to help enable their commitment to ensuring that students receive a world-class education,” said Seth Ravin, CEO, Rimini Street. “For the past 10 years, we have made it our mission at Rimini Street to help organizations all over the world achieve their IT and business goals.”

FCF: Greenpeace Allegations Unfair and Deceptive26.5.2018 18:02 | Pressemelding
FCF Fishery, Co. President Max Chou today released the following statement regarding recent misleading Greenpeace human rights abuse allegations made against the company: “We realize that as one of the world’s largest marine products integrated supply chain service providers with more than 30 subsidiaries, fishing bases, and shipping agents around the world, we are a prime target for organizations seeking to garner publicity and those not fully aware of the latest development and improvements that are currently taking place in the fishery industry. However, in their efforts to curb egregious human rights abuses, we believe it is unfair and deceptive to lump our company in with those who condone cruelty and neglect of their laborers. “Although we recognize the meaningful work of Greenpeace in exposing and eliminating human trafficking and sustainability abuses, we are equally disappointed that they are implicating FCF in old incidents and cases that have since been in all instances addr
