NEW YORK - Oct 10, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced UpgradeX, a simple and predictable path to upgrade from on-premise applications to the Infor Business Cloud.
Unlike most software companies with disparate products for the cloud versus on-premise, Infor UpgradeX allows customers to evolve their existing investments directly to Infor10x running into the cloud.
Customers will immediately benefit from spectacular user interaction experiences, deeper industry functionality that helps retire their customizations, to provide deeper analytics and simpler integration.
Through UpgradeX, customers will have their existing on-premise solution migrated to the 10x-enabled version of the application in the cloud, reducing costs and risks and minimizing disruption associated with on-premise deployments. Infor will manage the application for customers, providing on-going and predictive support, education, and upgrades to the latest version and reporting tools.
"Business today moves extremely fast; companies running software that is six, eight, ten years old are struggling to keep pace and putting themselves at risk," said Stephan Scholl, president of Infor. "Infor today has the social, mobile, cloud, and analytical tools to help businesses thrive, so we've created the UpgradeX program to enable them to move more quickly and cost-effectively from an old on-premise deployment to a modern application in the cloud, where Infor will also handle maintenance, support, and upgrades."
In addition, deep micro-vertical capabilities that have robust functionality are built-in already, and allow for organizations to adapt systems without disrupting upgrade paths.
On premise customers can transition to predictable subscriptions via a one-time and modest set-up fee to move their data to cloud. UpgradeX is available now for Infor LN, Infor M3, Infor Lawson, Infor SyteLine, and Infor EAM.
Infor is fundamentally changing the way information is published and consumed in the enterprise, helping 70,000 customers in 194 countries improve operations, drive growth, and quickly adapt to changes in business demands. Infor offers deep industry-specific applications and suites, engineered for speed, and with an innovative user experience design that is simple, transparent, and elegant. Infor provides flexible deployment options that give customers a choice to run their businesses in the cloud, on-premises, or both. To learn more about Infor, please visit www.infor.com.
