Fast, efficient development

Streamlining business process flows and capturing valuable data systematically to minimize program coding, Mongoose maximizes your ability to quickly and cost effectively build anything, from simple web applications to complex ERP systems. Fully integrated with Infor Ming.le™ and Infor ION (Intelligent Open Network), Mongoose can be used with all Infor ION-enabled enterprise apps.

Multi-device ready
Multi-device ready

Providing prebuilt, enterprise-class, full user security (with Single Sign on), Mongoose automatically publishes for both browser and mobile interfaces. With your business objects and logic shared across all device types, creating a mobile or tablet version of your app is simple, fast, and hassle-free.

Automatic upgrades
Automatic upgrades

Requiring no knowledge of complex source codes or programming languages, the platform empowers you to easily enhance and extend your core enterprise solution. Because Mongoose stores user extensions and customizations in metadata, separate from the base application, they'll upgrade automatically when you deploy or upgrade to a new version of your application.

Multi-tenant cloud ready

As part of Infor Cloudsuite™, Mongoose acts as a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), capable of handling and securing data for any number of framework users within the same set of servers.

Flexible deployment

Based on the Microsoft.Net platform with a Microsoft SQL database engine, Mongoose is easily deployable on-premise or in the cloud.

Highlights and core functionality

Connect hassle-free

Creating extensions that leverage Infor ION and/or Infor Ming.le™ is simplified because we have pre-built all events necessary to connect to either application.

Tap added processing power

Mongoose comes with its own workflow engine, to utilize when additional processing is needed in your application. It also works with Infor ION’s workflow engine for situations that require outside events to be interfaced.

Facilitate easy execution

To either run or develop a Mongoose application, all you need to get started is a browser and a Mongoose URL. No client is required to execute anything built within the framework. This results in a very easy deployment to the end user—and constant availability to the developer.

Ensure consistency

Applications built with Mongoose automatically adhere to Infor SoHo style guide standards without requiring any additional steps. This ensures that your applications built will have a look and feel consistent with any of your other Infor applications.

Deliver a rich UX

Mongoose does more than just build application extensions. It can also be leveraged to develop web portals, mobile applications, and Infor Ming.le homepage widgets. A number of new features in the solution allow developers to produce apps of the highest quality, for a rich user experience.

Design like a pro

Mongoose comes with a full theming engine that allows you to set up (or alter) much of your application’s look and feel without requiring any coding at all.
