Infor Announces Cloud-Certified FIAR Solution

United States – September 17, 2013, 00:00 AM

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced a cloud-certified solution that offers federal government agencies a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) approved platform. The Infor Approva tool establishes a cloud platform to automate Financial Improvement Audit Readiness (FIAR) planning and continuous controls monitoring. The Infor Approva tool provides a single-option solution to automate FIAR compliance.

The FIAR automated solution streamlines the information flow across multiple agency departments and levels. The tool is designed to help close the gap between segregation of duty and transactional items, allowing for a clean option that can be expanded upon into the future. Decision-making is based on an enterprise view of demand, allowing for better customer service while still protecting the integrity of the data. The joint solution can help obtain compliance on a number of government initiatives such as the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISCMA 800-37), the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act (FFMIA) and OMB Circular guidelines.
