Rimini Street Launches Rimini Connect

 Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), 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 launched Rimini Connect™, a new and easy-to-deploy suite of integration and interoperability solutions provides unique, innovative, and economical tools for connecting browsers, operating systems, and email used with Oracle, SAP, and other software. 

 

Three initial solutions are now being brought together and made available in the new Rimini Connect suite of integration and interoperability solutions. The Rimini Connect launch follows the recent introduction of the Rimini Protect™ suite of security solutions. 


Connecting a Growing Landscape of Complex Software 

Organizations have a growing landscape of complex, mission-critical applications that range in age, technologies, and platforms, and are highly customized. Making matters more challenging, technology components such as hardware, operating systems, browsers, and back-office application data connections change frequently. 

 

When a change in a technology stack component causes an issue with an application, the software application vendor’s typical response is to either do nothing, provide a code update, require an upgrade to a new release, or sometimes even require a complete migration to a different product to address these integration and interoperability challenges. 

 

Further, setting aside the significant costs, labor, and time it could take to make such application changes, there is a significant risk that such changes could create interconnection issues to other applications and system issues that ultimately lead to operating disruptions for users. This situation is even more complex when organizations have customized applications in their landscape. 

 

A Need for Rimini Connect Solutions 

Rimini Street began developing visionary solutions in partnership with its clients to insulate applications from environmental changes using technology that acts as a “universal translator” between otherwise incompatible technologies and code. 

 

The response received from early solution adopters was very positive, because they were provided with advanced technology that enabled them to easily and continuously re-configure their IT environment. They also benefited from smooth integrations and interoperability without having to apply changes to application or database code. 

 

Rimini Connect Solutions Are Proven and Save Money 

It is time to just make things work together consistently and easily, now and into the future, with proven Rimini Connect solutions. 

 

Over the past 17 years, Rimini Street has successfully resolved thousands of compatibility issues for clients. The Company’s more than 800 engineers worldwide have thousands of years of combined experience resolving integration and interoperability challenges between software products in complex environments, and also has an Advanced Technology team specifically dedicated to resolving the most complex of these continuously evolving challenges. 

 

With Rimini Connect solutions, there is no longer any need to have an application software roadmap limited by a software vendor’s application and release compatibility matrix that may require costly, risky, and time-consuming application code updates, or release upgrades or migrations.  

 

Rimini Connect solutions are generally available to all organizations globally. The first three Rimini Connect solutions are: 

      Rimini Connect™ for Browsers

      Rimini Connect™ for OS

      Rimini Connect™ for Email

 

Clients Achieve Fast and Durable Results  

“Many of our clients are running these Rimini Connect solutions successfully in production and will save millions of dollars, extensive labor, and significant time avoiding the need for software vendor code updates, application updates or migrations just to maintain integrations and interoperability,” noted Desmond Whitt, vice president, Advanced Technology Services, Rimini Street, Inc. 

 

Officeworks, a large every-channel retailer in Australia, was able to avoid an expensive, business-disruptive, and complex SAP software upgrade, thanks to Rimini Connect for Browsers.

 

“In the long run, Rimini Connect has allowed us to prioritize our technology investments to drive an easy and engaging customer experience,” noted Michael Howard, chief operating officer, Officeworks.  “This project really was a collaborative experience with the Rimini Street team; when any implementation issues occurred due to our unique environment, they proactively helped us look for a solution and to troubleshoot. For us, it was about making the transition as seamless as possible without any interruption to business, and Rimini Street helped us achieve that.”

 

MilliporeSigma, a services provider for the pharmaceutical industry providing state-of-the-art tools, services, and expertise to perform experiments and engineer new products under strict federal regulations, implemented Rimini Connect for Email to meet its needs. 

 

“Email compatibility for us is very critical. The Rimini Connect implementation was flawless. There was no system downtime. Our end users didn’t know that anything happened,” noted Karen McAfee, IT-AMD senior business analyst, MilliporeSigma. “Rimini Street has been a game changer for me and is giving me the peace of mind knowing I have someone good and reliable to go to for help supporting our system.”

 

Rimini Connect™ for Browsers 

Rimini Connect for Browsers supports one or more browsers that are incompatible with the HTML messaging being sent by ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) applications. Most organizations today have multiple desktop and mobile clients, sometimes with multiple versions operating at the same time. Rimini Connect for Browsers resolves these challenges: 

      Helps “future-proof” the compatibility of current and future applications and releases 

      Extends the lifespan of existing enterprise applications and minimizes change for users with a variety of current and future browsers and versions   

      Does not require server portal and browsers to be changed  

      Does not require updates, upgrades, or migrations to application code 

      Does not require application regression testing   

Rimini Connect™ for OS 

Rimini Connect for OS supports new versions of the operating system that may be uncertified or incompatible with the ERP applications. To meet evolving security and compliance standards, most organizations do not realize they have alternatives to updating and upgrading these operating systems. Typically, an application upgrade is also required to support these newer operating system releases. Rimini Connect for OS resolves these challenges: 

      Helps “future-proof” the compatibility of current and future applications releases with a variety of current and future operating systems releases 

      Extends the lifespan of existing enterprise applications and minimizes change for users 

      Manages enterprise application and operating system roadmaps independently 

      Enables option to upgrade operating systems 

      Does not require application regression testing  

Rimini Connect™ for Email  

Rimini Connect for Email supports new authentication and email protocols for seamless integration. Modern applications use email to drive workflow, but frequently use older methods to connect to these evolving email services. This solution allows the adoption of these new standards without any change to application code. Rimini Connect for Email solves these challenges: 

      Preserves email-based notification and authentication workflows as mail server authentication protocols evolve 

      Quickly resolves incompatibilities as Microsoft Exchange Online migrates to the Open Authorization 2.0 (OAUTH2) protocol on January 1, 2023  

      Extends the lifespan of existing enterprise applications and minimizes change for users 

      Does not require updates, upgrades, or migrations to application code 

      Does not require application regression testing
