Infor Expands Global Reach in Key Industries through Partnership with Tata Consultancy Services
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced a strategic partnership with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services and business solutions organization. The agreement, which marks one of the first global systems integrator alliances for Infor, will expand the company's geographic reach in key industries by enabling TCS to market, implement and provide services for certain products of Infor and its affiliate, Lawson Software, in the fashion, food and beverage, and healthcare industries.

- TCS will expand its regional presence through its Center of Excellence to support the deployment and service of certain Infor and Lawson products across the globe.
- The strong customer endorsement of Infor's strategy to deliver applications that are specialized by industry, credited in part for the company's strong growth in 2011, and the relevancy of Infor and Lawson products to critical growth regions, were key factors in TCS' decision to formalize the partnership.
