Business cloud software company Infor has announced the release of its new Enterprise Automation Solution, as well as its new Developer Program and Developer Portal. The news coincided with Infor hosting its Infor Now conference Oct. 4-5 in New Orleans, bringing together customers and industry analysts to learn all about the company’s latest offerings.
Enterprise Automation Solution
Infor’s Enterprise Automation Solution is a set of Infor Operating Service multi-tenant cloud services — built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) — which are designed to help companies rapidly scale automation across their organizations by connecting data integration, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and robotic process automation capabilities into a single platform, the company said in a news release.
With the new automation solution, companies can “continuously expand enterprise resource planning (ERP) automation capabilities across diverse applications and achieve business results faster,” while minimizing integration costs and risks, Infor said. The solution also enables customers to create unlimited automation processes that interact directly with Infor CloudSuites or “any other application experience without human intervention.”
“Infor’s Enterprise Automation solution is unique because it delivers automation capabilities through a single composable platform, Infor OS, which connects systems and people through back-end automation, decision automation and — with the release of Infor RPA — front-end automation,” the company said in a statement.
Developer Program and Portal
The other new services Infor announced — the Developer Program and Developer Portal — are designed to provide developers with the information and tools they need to build applications on top of Infor cloud ERP systems. The portal includes baseline concepts and definitions, a centralized library of APIs (application programming interfaces), and a set of specific tutorials that will “help developers assemble the components they need to build next-generation solutions,” Infor said.
“We view the Infor Developer Program as an on-ramp for launching solutions on our Infor Marketplace,” said Story Monforte, Infor’s Senior Director of Digital Strategy. “It is another key part of our growing partner ecosystem, which helps deliver a myriad of choices and innovation to our customers.”
