At the Strategic Partner level, Infor has ongoing initiatives with several key global companies—IBM, Microsoft, Ciber, and Progress—that offer IT platforms, infrastructure, and tools that support our solutions.
IBM: Strategic Alliance Partner
Infor has 70,000 customers worldwide. A large percentage of them rely on a solid infrastructure of IBM hardware and middleware to support our applications. The Infor and IBM strategic alliance leverages the core assets of our two companies to ensure performance is strong, costs are low and quality is consistently high. Through this partnership, our customers don’t have to worry about obsolescence; our development teams collaborate to be sure current solutions and new releases from both companies are complementary.
Our professional services teams work closely together, too, when our joint customers need help with business process alignment, project management, systems integration and hosting, training and support. In addition, we recently launched an initiative with IBM to develop standardized solutions that combine our applications with IBM’s infrastructure offerings and corresponding services—with the goal of providing additional choices that are more affordable for our enterprising customers.
Microsoft: Strategic Alliance Partner
Infor recognized long ago that Microsoft was a key vendor in many of our customers’ businesses. We developed a strategic partnership that is now a long-standing one—built on a close working relationship to deliver business specific solutions that meet the individual needs of our customers. Infor leverages the Microsoft platforms and tools to enrich, extend and evolve Infor solutions to help our customers manage the fast-paced changes in their businesses.
