Infor announces Infor CloudSuite™, the first group of industry-specific application suites available on Amazon Web Services' (AWS) cloud.
Infor CloudSuite provides beautiful software with deep industry functionality and a flexible, subscription-based delivery model that significantly reduces upfront IT expenditure.
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. This core, along with fast and simple provisioning and a SaaS pricing model will enable Infor CloudSuite to change the way enterprise software is delivered and consumed.
"SaaS today refers primarily to HCM, CRM, or another edge application, never to mission-critical business operations," said Infor CEO Charles Phillips. "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."
"Customers want help figuring out how to move more of their operations into the AWS Cloud. They want to shift their resources to focus on what they do best, rather than on the undifferentiated heavy lifting of managing IT and complex software," said Andy Jassy, SVP of Amazon Web Services. "We are excited that Infor is addressing these needs using the AWS platform. Infor CloudSuite on AWS delivers a simplified and enhanced user experience, across a multitude of industries, and provides all the agility, elasticity, and cost benefits of the AWS Cloud to enterprise customers around the world."
