NEW YORK - Apr 08, 2014
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced Infor CloudSuiteTM Aerospace & Defense (A&D) to offer industry customers access to applications within the cloud environment. Infor CloudSuite A&D builds upon Infor's offerings available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), combining beautiful software with rich manufacturing industry functionality. With a flexible, subscription-based delivery model to considerably lower upfront IT expenditure, Infor CloudSuite A&D provides specially configured functionality that is able to meet the unique needs of the aerospace and defense industry.
The release of Infor CloudSuite A&D provides Infor customers with a greater range of access when utilizing core industry applications. The suite can help significantly lower capital investment for IT, while allowing customers to collaborate electronically across their supply chain in real-time. Infor CloudSuite A&D provides greater flexibility, better manufacturing and reliable financials with less cost to implement and sustain.
The suite also offers customers access to industry specific analytics, which are delivered through a unified suite comprised of a unique user interface to provide critical data and metrics to end-users. The suite also utilizes Infor ION®, a purpose-built middleware and social collaboration engine Infor Ming.leTM, which facilitates internal and external communications between customers and their suppliers. These enhancements support globalization by allowing users to view real-time data at anytime and from any location. Infor CloudSuite A&D enables applications to be launched remotely, which in turn can provide access to emerging partners, suppliers and joint ventures.
Customers experience a faster return on investment (ROI) with Infor CloudSuite A&D and a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO), as cloud delivery with AWS is managed through a monthly subscription. Without the need to purchase additional onsite servers and hardware or hire supplementary IT staff, Infor CloudSuite A&D is more cost effective upfront. It is positioned as an operating expense, rather than a capital expense like traditional on-premise deployments.
"Aerospace and defense manufacturers are consistently looking for new ways to reduce overhead and cut costs," said Edward Talerico, industry director, Aerospace & Defense, Infor. "Infor CloudSuite A&D gives them the option to manage their technology in the cloud without a large capital expense, allowing them to realize both immediate and future savings while still maintaining flexibility."
Infor will help customers to take advantage of Amazon Web Services' expertise and economies of scale by leveraging the AWS Cloud, providing access to resources when they need them, on demand and with auto-scaling built into the Infor applications. AWS provides services in 10 Regions, with 25 Availability Zones and 51 Amazon CloudFront Edge locations globally.
