Why It’s the Right Time to Sever Ties with Oracle’s Application Support

White Paper Cover Image

To help facilitate their cloud revenue business objectives, Oracle has modified its approach for delivering on-premise application support. Whereas customers once paid maintenance fees to get more personalized support, in-version product enhancements, and the right to new upgrades, they now pay fees for self-support tools, fewer enhancements, and the right to repurchase cloud-based replacement solutions. Despite Oracle’s de-personalized support environment, many of their customers remain on board, viewing changes through a lens of “business as usual.” Many are still unaware of proven alternatives like third-party support.

For increasingly more Oracle users, third-party support providers are restoring higher quality support, reducing the cost of maintenance fees, and providing a safe haven until cloud solutions/digital innovations become right for them. The significant savings are in many cases funding and accelerating journeys to cloud – or funding business-driven strategies to advance their digital transformation. Ironically, it’s the decreasing value proposition of Oracle’s support model, coupled with Oracle’s zealous push to cloud, that third-party support is so quickly emerging in popularity and adoption.
