Infor Data Migration Accelerators Speed Time to Cloud

United States – July 11, 2016, 09:00 AM

Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced Infor Data Migration Accelerators to help customers securely transition from on-premise to cloud deployments with ease. With Infor Data Migration Accelerators, customers are able to minimize the risks of migrating to a cloud deployment, while still reaping the benefits of increased flexibility, agility and robust security. Infor Services has aligned with BackOffice Associates, a worldwide leader in information governance and data modernization solutions, to help customers manage one of the most critical assets - data. The Accelerators, powered by BackOffice Associates, will be available through Infor Services and will initially service four product areas, Infor M3, LN, S3 and enterprise asset management (EAM). Also available through Infor Services will be the Infor Enterprise Data Stewardship Platform, which can manage information governance across the enterprise.

Data migration is a considerable task, and for many CIOs, worries over the complexity can prevent companies from achieving the benefits of a modern, cloud-based infrastructure. As a cloud first company, Infor recognized the need for customers to undertake the transition with minimal risk for disruption or inaccuracies to the vast amounts of data involved. Similar to Infor Implementation Accelerators, this portfolio of data migration tools are purposefully designed to address the challenges that prevent customers from taking advantage of the considerable benefits of moving mission-critical applications to the cloud, including increased flexibility, agility, and security as well as seamless upgrades with fewer disruptions.

"Data migration is one of the biggest concerns that CIOs have in trying to transition to a modern, cloud-based infrastructure; they want to reap the benefits of the cloud but worry about their vast amounts of data. The Infor Data Migration Accelerators provide a simple approach for identifying complexities and charting a course for accurate data migration from start to finish," said Darren Saumur, senior vice president, Infor Services. "By aligning with BackOffice Associates, we have fortified the data migration process to ensure that our customers gain visibility and reduce risks when transitioning to the cloud."

Working through Infor Services, a global team of more than 5300 skilled experts, the Infor Data Migration Accelerators alleviate many of the challenges that can provide roadblocks to migrating data from a legacy system to a modern application in the cloud. Infor Services enables companies to undertake the transition by delivering expert guidance for managing data quality throughout the migration process, which helps to reduce risk, lower potential downtime and increase the overall value of the IT investment.

"Shifting from a complex on-premise IT environment to a cloud deployment requires an automated and strategic approach rooted in data quality and sound information governance," said Alex Berry, COO and president of North America, BackOffice Associates. "Infor is an organization that exemplifies the evolution of technology through the cloud approach, and as an industry leader they too recognized the need to partner with us to ensure that customers have the best data management when moving to the cloud."
