On CNBC's "Squawk Alley" Monday morning, CEO Charles Phillips talked about Infor's disruptive business software and building a better business cloud with Amazon.
"The biggest change in our industry has been the shift to cloud," Phillips said. "People have become used to simple applications running in the cloud, but we run mission-critical applications in the cloud for hospitals, manufacturing, and government, for example."
"We decided to not be vertically integrated, and instead, to optimize our applications of the Amazon cloud. A lot of other software companies wish they could do what we're doing, but they have too much invested and they can't really change now."
