Announcing the contract, Rimini Street said by providing “efficient, timely, and cost-effective database maintenance and support”, it plans to actively support Hyundai-Kia Motors in their endeavour to implement a business-driven IT roadmap.
“To support response to paradigm shifts in the automobile industry and active technology innovation, Hyundai-Kia Motors set out a new IT strategy that strives to maximise value across the IT landscape,” said Rimini Street.
Rimini Street said Hyundai-Kia Motors has been exploring options to reduce their reliance on the existing software vendor database support and achieve cost optimisation by identifying alternative solutions.
Lee Beom Tae, head of Hyundai-Kia’s Cloud Infrastructure Team, said: “Rimini Street has been demonstrating its competitiveness by offering robust and responsive database support along with cost saving benefits.”
“On the basis of the partnership that has begun with Rimini Street, we will work to actively push forward innovation and offer greater value to our customers.”
Today, Rimini Street says it provides support to clients operating in more than 100 countries, including “hundreds of database clients and many thousands of database instances worldwide, and serves clients with database architectures that range from single global instances to large, complex landscapes that include thousands of mission-critical instances”.
Seth Ravin, chief executive and chairman of the board, Rimini Street, said: “We are pleased to welcome Hyundai-Kia Motors to our fast-growing Rimini Street family of global and Korean clients, and we look forward to working together in the years ahead as their trusted partner for mission-critical software support.”
“Hyundai has achieved its strategic objectives with a switch to Rimini Street support. They are now saving significant costs, getting more robust and responsive service, avoiding costly updates, and able to re-invest the financial, labour and time savings in technology innovation and other initiatives that create competitive advantage to support growth.”
