"In 2016, Spinnaker Support remained the fastest growing vendor in a fast-growing market," stated Matt Stava, CEO at Spinnaker Support. "Enterprises running SAP and Oracle seek greater value on their maintenance and support spend. Many are taking a break from high support fees while they define their strategic cloud roadmaps.

  • Oracle support services grew by 52.5%.
  • SAP support services increased by 38.9%.

Customer Recognition

Vaisala Corporation, headquartered in Finland, is a global leader in environmental and industrial measurement. After a thorough evaluation, Vaisala made the switch from Oracle to Spinnaker Support for E-Business Suite (EBS) support. "With Spinnaker Support, we are getting more comprehensive support, including tax and regulatory updates, at substantial cost savings," said Bodil Forss, Chief Information Officer for Vaisala. "From the start of the support agreement in June 2016 to date, Spinnaker Support engineers have resolved our issues in a satisfactory way. We are happy with Spinnaker Support's level of responsiveness and quality of support."

"We switched to a third-party support model for our SAP system because we are stable and because we wanted to redirect savings to more strategic programs," said Peter Girgis, Vice President and CIO of Dunn-Edwards Corporation. "After narrowing our search to the two top players in the space, we ultimately chose Spinnaker Support because of their culture, people, and proven delivery model. Spinnaker Support was just a better overall fit for Dunn-Edwards."

2017 Shaping Up to be Another Explosive Growth Year

"New customer wins continue to come from all over the world," continued Mr. Stava. "This year we are opening new operations hubs in Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East, further expanding our global reach and enriching our "follow the sun" support coverage. We continue to hire the finest SAP and Oracle software engineers in the world, who execute to our ISO 9001:2015 certified processes, and who we've armed with the industry's most modern ITSM technology."
