Infor announces Infor AutoRelease Cloud to provide automotive customers with a cloud-based iSeries solution. This release helps minimize risk for Infor AutoRelease customers that have not upgraded their iSeries platforms to current or supported levels by providing a cost-effective alternative to upgrading their hardware, operating systems, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions.
Infor AutoRelease Cloud provides a software-as-a-service (SaaS) option, enabling automotive manufacturers and OEM providers to stay compliant with electronic data interchange (EDI) trading partners without incurring the added capital expenses associated with full ERP upgrades.
Automotive customers can easily switch from an on-premise deployment to a SaaS subscription. The single-tenant SaaS offering features the latest IBM Power Systems and operating system, along with an automatic upgrade to ArtForm for barcode labels and forms.
"We recognize that our customers vary greatly in both size and scope, so it's important that we provide tools to help each meet the unique goals of their organization in a cost-effective and efficient manner," said Jeff Rheingans, Infor Automotive senior director. "With Infor AutoRelease Cloud, customers can modernize their technology footprint without the need for a full ERP upgrade."
