ATLANTA - Jun 23, 2010
Infor, the leading provider of business software for mid-market companies, today launched Infor ION. Infor ION services are designed to enable companies of all sizes to benefit from advanced yet simple application integration, business process management, and shared data reporting. Traditionally these services involved complex and high-cost middleware implementations. By automating the most difficult data sharing tasks, Infor ION gives mid-market companies the ability to more quickly and easily organize, analyze and collaborate on information from throughout their operations. The services are planned for release in the fourth quarter of 2010.
What Nomaco Says
"We're excited to see Infor's ongoing commitment to simplifying application integration," said Richard Langen at Nomaco, Inc. "To maximize growth opportunities, we needed company-wide interoperability, without the high cost and complexity. Infor Open SOA was already successful in allowing us to integrate faster, more simply and more cost-effectively than with any other vendor's solution. We're looking forward to even greater benefits from Infor ION."
What Forrester Research Says About ERP Integration
Excerpted from It's Time to Tame the ERP Integration Beast, Published May 5, 2010, by Ken Vollmer, George Lawrie, and Mike Gilpin:
"Integration challenges are often the foremost obstacle to getting the full value from packaged enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions ... Integration with these systems has frequently led to significant complications because core ERP applications are often better at collecting information than at making it available in all the places it is required. Therefore, application development and delivery professionals should evaluate their ERP integration strategy and upgrade it to ensure that it rises to the level required today to support agile operations inside and outside the enterprise."
What We Say
"Infor ION brings the world of on-premise applications and cloud computing together," said Soma Somasundaram, senior vice president of Global Product Development at Infor. "Infor ION is designed to make it easier for every Infor customer to integrate and manage their data, no matter where the data resides and no matter what application created it. With this unprecedented simplicity of business document exchange, companies of all sizes will now have a better way to build and use business intelligence from across their entire operations, faster and more cost-effectively than ever before."
