This transformation project is born from the simple realization that fewer applications lead to easier management and less distraction from our core activities," said John Booth, BAE Systems' Head of Project. "The next step in that process is to standardize on applications that do not need customization to deliver the functionality we require, with a clear, simple upgrade path to help keep us competitive."
"BAE Systems MAI and other defense contractors must work smarter and faster than ever before in order to reduce the cost of defense projects in the face of ever tighter margins," said Arsenin Rodriguez, director of business consulting, Aerospace and Defense, Infor. "A trusted source of live, contextual information, delivered to the right person to help them make the best decisions is a cornerstone of competitive advantage. Infor provides this new level of business information to help companies like BAE Systems MAI win on the global defense stage."
"This project validates that Infor has gained significant momentum in the aerospace and defense industry with the latest release of Infor10x," said Edward Talerico, industry director, Aerospace and Defense, Infor.
