Nucleus Research Names Infor a Leader in 2020 ERP Value Matrix
Infor has been named a Leader in the Nucleus Research 2020 ERP Technology Value Matrix, recognized particularly for its CloudSuites with industry-specialized functionalities.
For this Value Matrix, Nucleus assesses the ERP market based on product usability and functionality. This year, the summary notes: “Transitions to cloud deployments now command even higher prioritization as remote work and collaboration capabilities have become essential for long-term success.”
Nucleus reports that Infor “delivers its solutions through the CloudSuite platform and targets individual verticals with specialized functionalities and delivery options. The solutions all natively integrate to the rest of Infor’s enterprise application offerings, enabling customers to deploy best-of-breed solutions for supply chain management, CRM, asset management, human resources planning, and product lifecycle management. The solutions can be deployed through a range of options, including pure cloud and hybrid implementations, but the vendor has pledged to support on-premises deployments indefinitely.”
“Infor has distinguished itself as a Leader in the ERP market,” says Andrew MacMillen, analyst at Nucleus Research. “Infor’s product development strategy combines internally-driven innovation with acquisitions that both expand the platform’s coverage to new industries and enhances existing capabilities. Throughout the year, Infor released various usability and performance enhancements to each edition of CloudSuite. CloudSuite’s flexibility and scalability enable it to serve companies of all sizes and, when combined with Infor’s commitment to delivering specialized functionalities for complex verticals, will help the vendor maintain its position as a Leader in future editions of the Value Matrix.”
Harold Vrieling, Infor EVP of Development, says, “Being recognized as an ERP Leader again this year validates our proven strategy of delivering industry-specific capabilities in a unique CloudSuite for each of the verticals we serve. Our customers get all of functionality they need, with the flexibility and agility to grow, and the reduced risk provided by our cloud-based security.”
