FAQs

The design and development of the Infor CloudSuite Corporate platform has been in the making for the past six years. Recently, Infor has realized the complete vision for this modern ERP solution—an end-to-end ERP in the cloud, built on Infor’s java-based platform that leverages a common UX, analytics, and complete integration across the portfolio.

This new cloud solution provides existing customers with a compelling and modern destination, with significantly enhanced features, capabilities and time to value for this modern operational technology backbone. Going forward there will be twice yearly releases, with continuous improvements and greater industry functionality for a complete suite.

Infor CloudSuite Corporate includes Infor CloudSuite Human Capital Management and Infor CloudSuite Financials & Supply Management—now a combined suite, fully integrated, automated, and supported in the cloud (or on premise). CloudSuite Corporate replaces all previous product versions released in 2016 or earlier, featuring the re-platformed financials, supply management and HCM solutions, along with the full Infor tech stack (Infor Ming.le, Infor ION, BI).

CloudSuite Corporate can be deployed two ways: in the cloud or on premise. Some HCM extension applications, particularly Infor Talent Science, HR Service Delivery, and Learning Management, are available only in the cloud.

No more manual updates and immediate access to the latest release. Faster cloud deployments so you can start using products faster. Better disaster recovery, leading to reduced potential downtime. Automated hardware scaling helps you achieve better performance. Lower MT costs helps you save money. Out-of-the box integrations for Talent Science, Workforce Management, Learning Management, HR Service Delivery, and EAM allows for faster deployments and adoption.

One of the most exciting new capabilities is the re-architected and redesigned General Ledger. This new functionality means that you no longer are restricted to the traditional set of accounting attributes in your legacy systems. You can establish industry dimensions for more strategic insights. The new GL can also serve as a data warehouse, providing the ability to bring non-GL and operational data into the GL, among other things.

Infor has an upgrade path for all customers and will work toward your success. Experts from Value Engineering, Infor’s Consulting Services team and our partner community will work with you to ensure the deployment methodology that best meets the needs of your organization, enables you to rapidly capitalize on new technology, and leverages deployment and transformation best practices. For customers already on a CloudSuite version deployed in 2016 or earlier, migrating to the new platform will require a services engagement due to the new tech stack.

Standard deployments are estimated to take 6-12 months, but this will vary depending on client requirements such as data migration needs, new/incremental functionality deployed, and whether the move involves the creation of a new chart of accounts structure. Most customers will need to plan for requisite configurations and integrations required for their unique business environments.
