Infor Helps Spanish Students Prepare for the Global Digital Economy

United States – February 13, 2018, 09:00 AM

Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced an agreement with the University Camilo José Cela, an innovative university in Spain with a disruptive academic model based on interdisciplinary, innovation and internationality, in partnership with Infor partner, IG Business Solutions. The agreement will see the Madrid-based university adopt Infor's Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) platform in order to help equip students with some of the skillsets and real-world experience necessary to compete in modern business environments. Specifically, the goal is to help graduates leave the university with appropriate skills for digital transformation programs across the manufacturing and logistics sector, which will become increasingly important as traditional skillsets are retired.

University Camilo José Cela chose to partner with Infor's Education Alliance Program (EAP) to help meet the talent needs of both local and wider European industries. Bringing industry projects and knowledge transfer to students looking to work in logistics and transportation, the university will be integrating Infor's EAM solutions into its undergraduate Transportation and Logistics Sciences course.

Practical classes introducing Infor EAM, and exposure to modern, digital automation processes, are designed to help students develop their skills and employability. As digitalization brings opportunities for innovation and competitive business advantage, there is an urgent need to help ensure demand for future employment skills is met, and this model is structured to help to bridge this gap.

"We are delighted to welcome University Camilo José Cela, in partnership with IG Business Solutions, to our Educational Alliance Program," comments Mark Stewart, Director, Infor Education Alliance Program, EMEA. "IG Business Solutions brings its Infor EAM knowledge and industry experience to the program, offering real customer projects which are designed to help participating students with future career opportunities. The university offers an exciting vision for their students. It sees industry collaboration as a critical requirement to ensure the next generation of talent is prepared for the future. Through the provision of Infor's EAM solution, together with IG Business Solutions, we look forward to helping students develop the skills that progressive employers seek."

"Through Infor's EAP, University Camilo José Cela's students can learn ways to deliver value and help solve challenges of real companies in the supply chain management and enterprise asset management areas," comments Francesco Sandulli, innovation vicerrector, University Camilo José Cela. "This alliance is designed to help support the strategy of the University Camilo José Cela to transform its students into future outstanding professionals. Working with world-leading providers of business software, such as Infor, reflects the commitment of the university towards new learning methodologies and approaches more focused on teaching our students to solve real world, rather than theoretical, problems. Finally, this alliance can help both institutions develop new business and academic opportunities."

"As Infor's partner in education we look forward to delivering value to all involved, helping to facilitate real world experience through the use of modern software products," comments Ivon Ramalho, CEO, IG Business Solutions. "IG Solutions is highly committed to support both University Camilo José Cela and Infor on software models configuration and execution for logistic operations management."
