Most companies experience Oracle as an ever-increasing line item in the IT budget. Attempts to reduce this cost have either proven futile or introduced risk deemed greater than the reward. Afterall, systems running Oracle are often mission-critical and Oracle’s business practices are widely regarded as aggressive at best and punitive at worst.

Remend Stands Behind Your Savings
Cost reduction is the most over-marketed benefit of IT products and services. It is one thing to promise and even deliver savings; it is another to stand behind those savings with services that remain involved to maintain lasting value. For Oracle, this requires insight into pricing, proper asset management, long-term planning, and fearless execution.
