Market leader in residential lighting products and smart home selects Rimini Street to optimize operations, drive efficiency, bridge IT skills gaps and fund critical projects that improve competitiveness
(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of end-to-end enterprise software support, products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software, and a Salesforce and AWS partner, today announced that GE Lighting, a Savant company, a market leader in residential lighting products and smart home, has selected Rimini Watch™ for Change Management, replacing SAP Change Management (ChaRM) after determining a need for more flexibility and value from its change management system.
GE Lighting, a Savant Company, Reduces Redundancy and Increases Efficiency with Rimini Watch™
When evaluating potential solutions, GE Lighting, a Savant company, reviewed four main criteria for its new change management system:
A robust system that supports approval processes
Provides insight to “collisions” with changes
Ability to document and move attachments
Capability to migrate all its change history to the new tool
Rimini Watch for Change Management met these criteria and was selected. Rimini Watch exceeded expectations and provided the desired flexibility and seamlessness, and GE Lighting, a Savant company’s team saw a significant reduction in friction for its internal clients who relied on the change management system for their SAP landscape.
“There was a real partnership in helping our teams work through how it needed to be designed for us, how to get all of our historical documents migrated over, and how we utilize and manage it afterwards. Rimini Street made it easy for our team to make the change from ChaRM to Rimini Watch for Change Management,” said Theresa Szoke, vice president of information technology for Savant Systems, Inc., a global leader in the smart home and smart power spaces that purchased GE Lighting in 2020. “We were able to maintain quality in internal processes and have real cost savings to support our transformation agenda.”
From Tactical to Strategic, Rimini Street Powers GE Lighting, a Savant Company’s Competitive Goals
GE Lighting, a Savant company, is setting its sights to expand its investments into the smart home market, including further expansion of its Cync™ application capabilities. In addition, the budget funds saved with the switch to Rimini Watch are now being reinvested back into projects to accelerate their competitive vision.
The IT team is confidently leaning on Rimini Street to support their technology landscape, and the organization is reallocating their time and focus to high-impact projects.
“Day to day, we can focus more on our strategic direction versus on operational issues and getting deeper into analysis. We refer to our partner, Rimini Street, who is responsive, comes with the right analysis, and guides us through each step of the way. In the past year, we’ve moved 350 plus changes across five different landscapes without incident,” said Sanjay Sethia, senior manager of enterprise applications, GE Lighting, a Savant company. “I see a big advantage for my team, having Rimini Street onboarded with us.”
