Comprehensive, Responsive, and Affordable Oracle Demantra Support

Spinnaker Support is a leading global provider of third-party support for enterprises running Oracle Demantra for demand management and supply chain management. Spinnaker Support’s third-party software support replaces Oracle’s annual support. It is always at least half the cost of Oracle-provided support and provides more services through an assigned support team and highly personalized service.

When switching to Spinnaker Support, Demantra customers gain more comprehensive and responsive service, save an average of 62% on their support fees, and can remain on their current on-premise software release indefinitely. Customers trust us to keep their applications running smoothly, securely, and in compliance, and to help them navigate the journey from on-premise to hybrid to cloud.

What We Support

As a third-party vendor supporting Demantra customers, we are uniquely positioned to provide services across the entire product suite:

  • Applications Supported
  • Demand Management
  • Predictive Trade Planning and Optimization
  • Real-Time Sales & Operations Planning

Why Replace Oracle-Provided Support with Third-Party Support?

Support for your operational software is a mandatory expense, but not one that should put your IT budget in a hole. It’s critical to have 24/7 expert assistance to handle unplanned application issues, and support services should be comprehensive and fairly priced.

Oracle-provided support for on-premise software is neither. Hundreds of global enterprises in nearly every industry have now migrated away from Oracle-provided support to our third-party alternative because:

  • Oracle support fees rise each year by 2-4%, with no material benefits.
  • Oracle increasingly relies on a portal-based, self-service model rather than immediate, live assistance.
  • Oracle does not assist with customisations and integrations.
  • They are tired of the long delay for responses of P2 and P3 issues.
  • They feel forced into unjustifiable upgrades or unready cloud products.

years average experience of support staff

Third-party support is especially beneficial for enterprises that run Demantra, as all product versions (except Release 12.2) are only covered under indefinite Sustaining Support.

As the final stage of Oracle’s Lifetime Support, Sustaining Support is the most expensive type of support with the least value to offer to end-users. It excludes any new updates, certifications, security patches, or fixes. A majority of our Oracle customers come to Spinnaker Support because they recognize Oracle Sustaining Support for the raw deal that it is.

While Oracle focuses on selling more software and moving you to the latest release or Oracle Demand Management Cloud, Spinnaker Support is intensely focused on the quality and value of individualized customer service for your current Demantra implementation. We call it “support that is actually supportive.

The Advantages of Oracle Demantra Third-Party Support

Proper demand planning results in higher service levels, greater customer satisfaction, lower inventory costs, and lower distribution costs. Oracle Demantra supports demand management and supply chain management functions by automating the forecast process through quantitative analytics and advance modelling techniques.

Demantra has been a success – before and after its acquisition by Oracle – because it captures demand signals from multiple sources and converts those into an actionable, consensus forecast for all stakeholders and planners. It also integrates well with other Oracle products like EBS Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning, and Oracle Rapid Planning.

As Oracle aggressively pushes for the adoption of newer products like Oracle Demand Management Cloud, it has aggravated its customer base by severely reducing its commitment to support legacy on-premise applications like Demantra. Businesses are relieved to learn Spinnaker Support’s services are purpose-built to deliver continuing and comprehensive support for enterprise applications, regardless of whether Oracle has declared an End of Life to a release.

We have built and retained large, knowledgeable teams of Oracle support engineers to address virtually anything with Demantra, your associated technology stack, and product integrations. Our engineers average over 19 years of experience and help fill your knowledge gaps, ease your staffing constraints, and provide expert assistance for complex product and technology issues.

Organisations choose Spinnaker Support because we:

  • Immediately reduce the cost of support fees by an average of 62%
  • Deliver responses in less than 15 minutes, from Level 4 senior engineers in eight operations centres
  • Supply more comprehensive coverage, including for customisations and interoperability issues
  • Help extend the life of stable, customised, and productive applications, for as long as you need
  • Offer flexible commercial terms that match your licenses and business needs
  • Provide a safe haven until cloud solutions become right for your business
