Infor goes all-in with Amazon Web Services for cloud ERP

Infor is betting big on Amazon Web Services for its cloud ERP (enterprise-resource-planning) software strategy, with plans to begin offering a series of product suites on the company’s IaaS (infrastructure as a service).

Dubbed CloudSuite, the software packages will focus on a variety of specific industries, beginning with automotive, aerospace and defense, and hospitality. Later this year, Infor plans to launch a more general-purpose cloud ERP suite on AWS, called CloudSuite Corporate. This offering will include modules for core finance and human resources.

The company also plans to offer analytics, its ION middleware, Mongoose development tools, and other ERP products such as LN, M3 and Lawson through AWS.

Infor’s move is a bold step forward, CEO Charles Phillips said in a statement.

“SaaS today refers primarily to HCM [human capital management], CRM [customer relationship management] or another edge application, never to mission-critical business operations,” he said. “Infor CloudSuite redefines cloud for the enterprise, delivering the first full suite of business applications purpose-built by industry running in a public cloud through Amazon Web Services.”

Work is already underway to move current cloud subscribers over to AWS from Infor’s co-location sites. The process will be completed over the next 24 months, according to a spokesman.

One major consideration behind the move is AWS’ broad global reach, with services in 10 regions around the world. This provides better scalability and disaster recovery for Infor’s software. Infor also gets to take advantage of the work Amazon has done to make its services compliant with local regulations in various regions, which should appeal to risk-averse ERP customers.
