Infor Global Solutions, Inc. Key Developments

Boskalis Selects Infor CloudSuite to Support Global Business Operations

Infor announced that Boskalis has selected Infor CloudSuiteTM, a fully integrated, cloud-based solution suite delivering core ERP, integration, social, and analytic capabilities. Boskalis has transitioned over the last years from a dredging company to an integrated maritime service provider. Infor CloudSuite will enable Boskalis to focus on implementing a fit for purpose backbone for the core activities in its growth plan rather than its IT infrastructure. Infor CloudSuite is built upon Infor's offerings available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), combining beautiful software with rich functionality. The solution offers Boskalis enhanced flexibility and the opportunity to reduce costs while benefitting from higher availability, by leveraging the global infrastructure of AWS for its worldwide operations. Boskalis will complete this project through the Infor UpgradeX program, which provides a simple, predictable path to help customers upgrade from on-premise applications to the Infor Business Cloud. Companies like Boskalis can leverage existing Infor investments to migrate to the 10x-enabled versions of Infor applications in the cloud, helping them to reduce associated costs and risks, and minimize disruption to daily operations. Boskalis will begin implementing Infor CloudSuite in the Netherlands and expects its first users to be operational in 2016. When most of the Netherlands is operational, the deployment will spread to Boskalis locations globally over the course of the next years. Included in the suite of applications are Infor LN, Infor ION, Infor Ming.leTM, Infor Expense Management (XM), and Infor Dynamic Enterprise Performance Management (d/EPM).

Vari-Form Selects Infor CloudSuite Automotive to Help Support Global Expansion

Infor announced that Vari-Form has selected Infor CloudSuite TM Automotive to improve business processes and streamline product innovation. Vari-Form sought to implement technology that would make the company more dynamic in creating more than 7 million parts each year. Infor CloudSuite Automotive provides the company with reliable access to a flexible technology platform that will help reduce customizations, lower risk and increase overall productivity. Vari-Form is currently undergoing a companywide expansion, which includes creating new facilities in European and Asian markets. Infor solutions will provide key language components that enable Vari-Form to utilize local language options when communicating within the enterprise. The company also determined that a switch to a cloud environment would be both practical and economical in servicing its growth initiative. Before selecting Infor, the company relied heavily on older technology to perform operational tasks. Many of these technologies included complex modifications and customizations, which can be costly, difficult to maintain and add significant risk to business continuity. By implementing Infor CloudSuite Automotive, Vari-Form gains a modern toolset that creates flexibility and greater access to the global workforce. Infor's strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) will also provide Vari-Form with a high quality, secure hosting environment that promotes a modest total cost of ownership.

Fetim Group Selects Infor M3 Enterprise Resource Planning Application

Infor announced that Fetim Group has chosen to migrate its complete Infor M3 Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application to the cloud. In addition, Fetim will use Infor IONTM to help integrate a range of third-party, best of breed applications, all of which will be deployed in the cloud. An increase in online shopping, combined with globalization, has dramatically reduced the position of the retailers that were once Fetim's core market, whilst opening up substantial opportunities for direct sales. Fetim is moving its applications to the cloud to help equip it with the agility to respond to these changes. Fetim also took the decision to move to the cloud version of Infor M3 following a period of international acquisitions that resulted in large fluctuations in the number of users and IT resources required. As a growing company, Fetim has traditionally had to rationalize the overcapacity and excess legacy hardware that comes as part of acquisition. This has carried with it substantial cost and is a distraction from core commercial activity. As an existing Infor M3 customer, Fetim has been able to influence the functionality included in newer versions of M3 and will deploy the cloud version of Infor M3, with minimal customizations. This will help Fetim to achieve standardized processes quickly. Integration with other applications such as a third party warehouse management system will be handled by Infor ION. Another driver for Fetim's move to cloud is to support a move from desktop to mobile infrastructure, to shift fixed capital investment to variable operating expenditure and to better handle the speed of change for security requirements. Security is a key concern for Fetim and after having successfully dealt with a range of malware and email based threats to the business as a result of its global buying presence, Fetim has chosen to outsource the management of this risk to specialists including Infor and its cloud partner, Amazon Web Services (AWS), going forward.
