Infor announced Infor CloudSuite, a group of industry-specific application suites available on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud.
Each industry suite within Infor CloudSuite is built by unifying multiple applications that historically were deployed independently to holistically support core business functions by industry, the company says. “SaaS today refers primarily to HCM, CRM or another edge application, never to mission-critical business operations,” said Charles Phillips, CEO of Infor. “Infor CloudSuite redefines cloud for the enterprise, delivering the first full suite of business applications purpose-built by industry running in a public cloud through Amazon Web Services.”
Infor will leverage the AWS cloud infrastructure to allow customers to take advantage of Amazon’s expertise and economies of scale to access resources when they need them, on demand and with auto-scaling built into the Infor applications. Infor is in the process of consolidating existing subscribers and transitioning current internal infrastructure to the AWS platform.
Infor plans to roll out industry suites delivered on AWS throughout 2014, beginning this spring with Infor CloudSuite Automotive, Infor CloudSuite Aerospace & Defense, and Infor CloudSuite Hospitality. Early this summer Infor expects to deliver Infor CloudSuite Corporate, with a core of best-in-class financials and Infor’s complete human capital management suite.
