Comprehensive, Responsive, and Affordable Agile PLM Support

Spinnaker Support is a leading global provider of third-party support for enterprises running Oracle Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) environments. Our third-party software support replaces Oracle’s annual maintenance and support. Third-party support is always at least half the cost of Oracle support and provides more services through an assigned support team and highly personalized service.

When switching to Spinnaker Support, Agile PLM customers gain more comprehensive and responsive service, saving an average of 62% on their support fees and can remain on their current software release indefinitely. Customers trust us to keep their Oracle applications running smoothly, securely, and in compliance.

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

Enterprise software support is a mandatory expense, but it shouldn’t be one that drains your budget. It’s critical to have expert assistance always available to handle unplanned application issues, and that service should be fairly priced.

Oracle Support has devolved in recent years into a self-service model with slow response times and little value to organizations running stable software and systems like Agile PLM. Hundreds of global enterprises in nearly every industry have now migrated away from Oracle-provided Agile PLM support to our third-party alternative because:

Third-Party Agile PLM Support
  • 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 customizations and integrations.
  • There is often a long delay for responses of P2 and P3 issues.
  • Oracle pushes them into unjustifiable upgrades or unready cloud products.

years average experience of support staff

Third-party Agile PLM support emphasizes more proactive and comprehensive service.

Skilled engineers respond in minutes to your support ticket. They know your organization, understand your product environment, and focus on resolving your issues more quickly, regardless of the source or what personnel are required to weigh-in on the solution.

While Oracle focuses on selling more software and locking you into the Oracle PLM Cloud, Spinnaker Support is intensely focused on the quality and value of individualized customer service for your current environment. We call it “support that is actually supportive.”

The Advantages of Third-Party Agile PLM Support

Enterprises use Oracle Agile PLM solutions to gain visibility and better control over their end-to-end product lifecycles. With Oracle’s increasing focus on building cloud capabilities, Agile PLM users are concerned about the future of their on-premise applications. Many are looking towards an alternative support model to restore higher quality support and escape being forced to upgrade or migrate.

  • Continue to work with support customers after they migrate Agile PLM to a hosted/cloud environment
  • Support all versions of Agile PLM products with no term limitations on support, regardless of whether Oracle has declared an End of Life to a release
  • Offer flexible commercial terms that match your licenses and business needs
  • Provide a safe haven until the cloud solution becomes right for your business
  • Staff large, knowledgeable teams of support engineers who average 19+ years of experience in Oracle products and related technologies
