Infor – It must stop being a “best kept secret”. Now!


The following highlights the key capture points on Infor from the recently completed capture document.
• Infor has an impressive history of building its scale and revenue quickly through strategic acquisitions in recent years. Unfortunately the typical “buy it, not build it”, philosophy has come at the expense of the overall Infor brand which remains largely weak and poorly presented, critically, even with clients.
• Infor has staked its future on an integrated stack with Microsoft. This is the critical relationship for Infor. Quite simply, the future of Infor applications depend heavily even exclusively on a successful Microsoft and the continued growth in the Microsoft Azure platform to drive Infor, particularly the obligatory Infor cloud offering, Infor24.
• IBM remains the key partner from a partner and services point of view. As a result of the poorly marketed and disintegrated nature of Infor, it is not on the any radar of the larger Systems Integrators and ISVs. This must change, and change soon, with aggressive partnership development and investment.
