When a customer ends their support agreement with their software vendor, they no longer have access to that vendor’s password–protected websites, thus no access to downloads or patches. While code patches do block vulnerabilities, the reality of the software patching process often does not meet its promise.

Our security philosophy:

  1. We deliver a layered, Defense in Depth approach to security. This means targeting the weakness category (CWE) rather than chasing individual historic threats or CVEs or trying to predict future CVEs. Addressing individual vulnerabilities is counterproductive. Many are active but not yet discovered, and others are still exposed because the patches did not work.
  2. Our proactive approach future proofs the security of your environments. We use hardening techniques and compensating controls to ensure your systems can pass penetration testing and audits. This comes standard with our third-party support. Using CIS & STIG Benchmarks, we guarantee you a more secure environment.

SPCs (Software Protection Codes) are part of your perpetual application license agreement with the software vendor and are not tied to annual maintenance support contracts. These codes are always available from the vendor through the License Code website (Oracle) and via the SAP Support Portal.

Spinnaker Support has a major advantage over other delivery methods to address fixes. وتمثل الطريقة الأكثر شيوعًا لتقديم الإصلاحات في الاتصال عن بعد ببيئتك وبدء تحليل مشكلاتك واستكشافها وحلها وتصحيحها.

وقد تعتقد أن فريق شركة Spinnaker Support يمثل عنصرًا ممتدًا لفريق الدعم الداخلي الخاص بك. بمجرد عزل المشكلة يتم تجهيز الإصلاح واختباره في بيئتك، والذي يؤثر فقط على التغييرات المطلوبة. وهذا من شأنه التقليل من التأثير على البرامج والكائنات الأخرى.

تختلف طريقة شركة Spinnaker Support عن طريقة البائع القياسية، التي تتطلب تركيب تحديث في شكل حزمة، يشمل بدوره تغييرات غير مرغوب فيها في أجزاء أخرى من التطبيق، بما في ذلك تخصيصاتك. The latter method increases the risk of “breaking” other parts of the application, which can result in lost time, frustration, and greater expense to the customer. وقد تتطلب التغييرات غير المرغوبة في التطبيق استغراق وقت لإعادة تعليم المستخدمين و/أو تدريبهم.

A.

نعم. Spinnaker Support offers global services from 9 regional operations centers to customers in over 104 countries worldwide supporting 14 languages.

The Third-Party Support Market

A.

Excellent question! All you need to know is in the video below.

A.

As any long-time Oracle customer knows, the cost of annual support steadily grows, while the number of the support features and updates shrinks. Sustaining Support, the final and most expensive support stage has little real value to offer to end-users.

Read our blog post on Sustaining Support, where we explore what it is and isn’t and compare it to Spinnaker Support.

A.

We see the difference in three areas: Reputation, Relationships, and Risk.

Reputation – Our character and standing in the market are unmatched.

  • Best independent customer reviews on Gartner Peer Insights.
  • The happiest employees in the industry deliver better services!
  • We have the most satisfied customers, with nearly 100% satisfaction based on our annual customer survey that measures the relationship, not merely ticket resolution. >97% of customers are willing to recommend us and our Net Promoter Score is 79, an exceptional rating.

Relationship – “We treat every customer like the only customer.”

  • You’re assigned an entire team. We personalize our service to you, and we’re the only support provider that gives each customer a hand-picked assigned team. Every customer, large and small, is our top priority. That means quicker time to resolution.
  • You only work with the experts. Our software engineers average the most years of industry experience (19+). They’ve seen it all and fixed it all.
  • We accommodate your unique technical and commercial needs. Our fees are always aligned with your use case to maximize your savings, even if you experience changes in your business.

Risk – You’re Safe with Spinnaker Support

  • No financial risk. We maintain a healthy financial status, and every dollar you spend with us is allocated to delivering service to you. We have financial superiority and do not expose our customers to any risk of financial uncertainty, service disruptions or inconsistency.
  • No legal risk. Unlike many other providers, who have been crippled by litigation with Oracle, our service delivery model has been proven to be proper and is uninhibited by Oracle. You will be working with a partner whose processes have been reviewed and approved by Oracle, and you will not be compromised by limits on our ability to deliver or distracted by ongoing legal battles.

In summary, with Spinnaker Support, you get:

  • The highest-rated, happiest engineering team
  • Personalized attention and services
  • Long-term stability
  • Commercial flexibility
  • A safe third-party support choice

الأسئلة الشائعة حول الملكية الفكرية (IP) للدعم المقدم من أطراف خارجية

A.

إننا بلا ريب لسنا بحاجة إلى انتهاك شروط الملكية الفكرية وأحكامها! World-class support is about customer-focused processes and a commitment to customer satisfaction. تنبع خبرتنا في مجال الحلول، الوظيفية والفنية على حد سواء، من فريقنا الذي يتألف من مهندسي دعم ذوي خبرات ومهارات عالية، ويبلغ متوسط تلك الخبرة 19 عامًا في دعم تطبيقات الشركات من SAP وOracle.

Our support is performed entirely through remote connections to our customers’ systems and environments. Spinnaker Support staff does not possess any Oracle or SAP environments on its computers and performs all work just as a consultant would do sitting in a customer’s office. Almost 100% of the fixes we provide are authored by our support team and are customer-specific—we don’t share code between customers, nor do we access any password-protected websites from third-party software vendors like Oracle or SAP to provide these fixes.

A.

نعم. Spinnaker Support has a strict policy to protect the IP of Spinnaker Support, our customers, and all third-party software vendors used by our customers. Our IP Policy is communicated to each of our support team members, and each is required to read and understand the policy on a regular basis. وتعتبر سياسة الملكية الفكرية هذه صارمة، وتخضع لمراجعة قانونية شاملة.

The highlights of this policy are communicated to our customers to ensure that their staff, their vendors, and Spinnaker Support’s legal interests are protected. ونراجع سياسة الملكية الفكرية داخليًا بشكل دوري، ونقدم التحديثات حسب الحاجة. All updates are communicated to our customers.

Documented within our comprehensive Support IP Policy is a list of items from software vendors which Spinnaker Support WILL NOT download, store, or receive from our customers. Spinnaker Support WILL NOT download to any Spinnaker Support systems, any material from a vendor on a customer’s behalf – no tools, no documentation, no patches, etc.
