The Internet of Things has wide-reaching implications for all the industries that Infor serves, and Infor OS is built to capitalize on those opportunities as they evolve. With the ability to monitor, collect, aggregate, and visualize data gathered from sensors across a wide variety of equipment and devices, Infor OS connects information from formerly disparate sources into a data lake that makes analytics accessible across the organization. The result is real-time, actionable information that addresses the specific challenges of your business and industry.

Data Lake

Data Lake

Infor OS simplifies getting the most out of your data with its Data Lake capabilities—integrating business process, enterprise graph, asset, and user data with network insights from the commerce cloud and machine-learning infused business intelligence. Fast, reliable, and refreshable at the touch of a button, your data is visualized in real-time to give users at all levels the information they need to make better decisions faster.

Highlights and core functionality

From automated workflows and a common user interface across applications to in-context business intelligence and personalized team-based homepages, Infor OS is all about efficiency. Employees can spend less time looking for information and more time acting on it.

Infor OS is designed to bring information to you – when and where you need it – automatically. You can be alerted when potential problems arise, pop in and out of applications, and collaborate in real-time and in context with colleagues to resolve issues. With conversations captured and persisted into enterprise-wide streams for ongoing reference, you'll be in the best possible position to prevent history from repeating itself unnecessarily.

Business needs change over time, and your systems need to be able to change along with them. Infor OS gives you the flexibility to add to and modify systems as your business grows, creating an environment that evolves with you, rather than tying you indefinitely to a moment in time. Cloud-deployment options also dramatically simplify upgrades and allow you to scale capacity up or down to support your business as it changes, meeting any level of requirement for transaction volume or system up-time.

Organizational systems too often sit in silos, unable to talk to each other. The result is pockets of information, unnecessary rework, preventable errors, and ultimately, severe limitations on the value delivered from your technology investments. With Infor OS, you get systems without borders. Using Infor's loosely coupled architecture, you can integrate both Infor and non-Infor applications with minimal effort, giving you access to real-time information across your business.

Highly-customized, aging systems with tenuous or non-existent integration to other enterprise applications place heavy burdens on stretched IT staffs and limit return on technology investments. Infor OS gives you the flexible architecture needed to respond to changing needs, while Infor's industry-driven CloudSuite solutions make outdated systems a thing of the past. With cloud deployment, system maintenance and upgrades become Infor's responsibility, allowing you to remain forever modern. We focus on your technology so you can focus on your business.

Infor believes that business software not only can but should be intuitive, easy-to-use, and beautiful. Infor OS redefines expectations for the way enterprise applications look, feel, and function. The result is increased user adoption, improved productivity, and software you look forward to using.

Simplicity and efficiency are the driving forces behind Infor OS. Its architecture is inspired by the internet, which is the most scalable and integrated application ever designed. If one application goes down, the internet doesn't go down with it. Infor OS is built to be every bit as open and resilient. The result is systems that are flexible and stable, as well as easier and more cost-effective to maintain.

With Infor OS, you can transform information into actionable insights. Team based homepages, role-based analytics, and automatic alerts speed decision making and support proactive problem solving, while mobile capabilities let you monitor and drive your business anytime, from anywhere. Pre-packaged role and industry-based analytics also allow you to meet the specific needs of your users, business, and industry.

Infor OS allows you to build a centralized space for collaboration, business process improvement, enterprise document management, and contextual analytics that's fully embedded within ERP, financials, and other organizational systems. By putting critical content where people can easily find and use it to execute the business processes for which they're responsible, it allows employees to work smarter and faster and enables your business to create a work environment in line with modern employee expectations.

Infor OS combines real-time information from ERP, SCM, enterprise asset management (EAM), and financial systems, as well as any other transactional information, on a single screen, automatically sensing what users are working on and displaying relevant data. You can drill back to determine the root cause of issues, interact with all types of information without having to switch between systems, and even extend the platform to third-parties, like customers and suppliers.
