1 Technical Paper Infor Business Cloud How companies are confidently migrating core industry processes to the cloud Options that make sense for you The Infor Business Cloud suite of applications has experienced rapid growth recently, and it now has over 2 million users and 1,200 customers. Unlike the competition, we provide options for companies to run the same robust software on-premises or in the cloud. And options are important today as companies test the waters to see how cloud solutions can work for them. Chances are, if you re like most business people, you think that running non-mission-critical, non-real-time processes on the cloud makes sense. Things like back-office operations, HR, and sales force automation all seem like worthy candidates for the cloud. But what about your core industry processes the applications that make or break your business, like your ERP system, your EAM system, your SCM system, your financial management system? Have you thought about running those, at least partly, in the cloud? Or are you afraid the cloud isn t robust enough, trustworthy enough, or capable enough to handle the applications that you rely on every day? This technical paper describes how Infor offers secure choices for companies those who already have significant investments in on-premises applications, but want to build on that investment with cloud technology, and those who want the economics of a predominantly cloud-based architecture with the confidence that on-premises solutions provide. Table of Contents 1 Options that make sense for you 2 The benefits of cloud architecture 3 The Infor Business Cloud advantage 4 What makes it work 5 See results now

2 The benefits of cloud architecture First, let s briefly recap the advantages of cloud technology. Elasticity. There s no need to bring in new IT resources or hardware to handle peak workloads. By the same token, there s no need to take your new hardware out of service when demand tapers off. With cloud apps, you can easily add and remove capacity as you see fit, and pay for only the amount of capacity that you consume. Economies of scale. In many ways, traditional IT has meant reinventing the wheel for every company having to build your own infrastructure to support the apps you need. Sometimes the roadmap seemed overwhelming, and the result a major investment. Those days are gone with cloud technology, and Infor Business Cloud makes it available to you in an economical plan that takes advantage of Amazon s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2 ) technology infrastructure and our own Infor ION open framework. You can quickly provision new locations by reiterating your existing investment. After quick implementation, management and maintenance are easy and require little intervention by your own IT team. Economies of speed. The cloud offers a wealth of possibilities for quickly configuring and tailoring software to the requirements of a given industry. We call this advantage economies of speed, and it s just one factor that makes cloud technology revolutionary. Implementation is faster and easier, even when you have to meet specific niche requirements. Virtually limitless extensibility. Cloud architecture opens a world of opportunity for extending solutions to meet specific requirements, without having to bring new apps and new skill sets inhouse. You can use Infor Mongoose, our open framework for in-house application development, and Infor ION, our middleware that provides simple, fast connectivity for all applications, to easily create new apps that help you achieve end-to-end functionality. The result is a system that goes the distance. Instant on. As business complexity increases, you need solutions that help you move toward standardization and simplification not just at the application level, but at the infrastructure level as well. Infor Business Cloud solutions make it possible by letting you deploy processes that meet your business requirements, and do it in minutes rather than weeks even if you re conducting business halfway around the world. 2 Infor Business Cloud

3 The Infor Business Cloud advantage Infor Business Cloud provides the basic advantages of cloud computing outlined above, and goes a step further. It is an application suite that delivers enterprise-level functionality for a range of mission critical and non-mission critical processes in such areas as: Customer relationship management Expense management Manufacturing/enterprise resource planning Enterprise asset management Procurement Hospitality management Property management HR service delivery Performance management for healthcare Infor solutions are based on the expertise we ve developed through decades of immersion in the intricacies of your industry, so that we can solve the challenges you face every day. Even though other vendors can now deliver cloud-based software to any spot on the earth, only Infor can bring industry-specific experience and expertise through offices operating in hundreds of countries and local jurisdictions around the world. Cloud applications 2 million users and climbing SyteLine EAM Human Capital Management Customer Relationship Management Financial Management Expense Management HR Service Delivery Cloverleaf Hospitality...more Cloud apps coming soon Infor customers are using a range of Infor Business Cloud solutions to meet specific business requirements. Infor Business Cloud delivers our industry-specific expertise through a variety of cloud-based deployment models from totally cloud-based to hybrid environments, where some functionality is served from on-premises and some functionality is served from the cloud to help you use existing IT investments. However you decide to deploy, you ll get a seamless, unified user experience the functionality, look and feel, and single sign-on are the same for cloud, on-premises, and hybrid deployments. So, no matter where an application is running, the experience for the user is the same. Infor Business Cloud 3

4 What makes it work Infor Business Cloud delivers complete deployment flexibility with the optimal mix of power, availability, functionality, and speed. It builds on the following five essential foundations: Software as a Service (SaaS) Our cloud-enabled solutions currently include a range of Infor ERP, EAM, CRM, and HCM applications, and many more are on the roadmap to optimize for cloud deployment. But SaaS applications are only the beginning of cloud technology. Infor Business Cloud demonstrates our understanding of the fact that SaaS is a way of consuming services, while cloud computing encompasses the full scope of tools and techniques for designing, developing, and provisioning technology on demand. We ve built a broad and powerful foundation for taking the most functionally rich, industry-specific applications and distributing their benefits efficiently through the cloud. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Infor Business Cloud leverages a proven, secure cloud infrastructure. This infrastructure gives you a complete range of management and performance features to keep you operating without a hitch. Requiring virtually no IT footprint on your part, Infor Business Cloud allows your IT staff to focus more on delivering business value instead of maintaining infrastructure. Platform as a Service (Infor ION PaaS) Infor Business Cloud solutions are built with our standard user interface Infor Workspace and our Infor ION, an open framework that facilitates integration and interoperability between solutions. It s a great way to deploy apps in a rapid time-to-market fashion. In addition, Infor s advanced Infor Mongoose development platform delivers all the tools necessary to develop, customize, and deliver exactly the application you need in a fully cloud-based service. Many cloud computing vendors force you into a once-size-fits-all configuration, because they don t have a development environment suited to the needs of cloud computing. Infor Business Cloud offers a rich, flexible platform, so you can get the services you need today and expand into what you need in the future. Local.ly We offer a range of innovative cloud-based apps for handling local requirements regarding taxes, financial management, statutory and regulatory reporting, and local compliance management. In doing so, you get cloud-based localization on demand, so you don t have to bring those capabilities in-house. Xtreme Support We also offer intensive support for Infor Business Cloud apps, including accelerated deployments, proactive and personalized support, and in-place upgrades in the cloud that make it so easy to meet new industry requirements. 4 Infor Business Cloud

5 See results now If you want to get to the cloud, look to Infor. With Infor Business Cloud, we can prepare you for any route you want to take. We can stage your initial design and implementation in the cloud to help you realize profit more quickly, and then move you into an on-premises environment when you re ready to take that step whatever combination you prefer. If your niche focus requires rapid provisioning to meet industry demands, we can assemble a solution that brings together multiple apps and server instances in a single frame that can incorporate both cloud-based and on-premises solutions. You ll have the power to: Choose the deployment option that works best for you. Get up and running quickly in as little as 60 seconds. Give users a seamless application experience, no matter where your applications are running. Lower your capital budget requirements. Better predict your IT costs. Reduce the burden on your IT staff. Ultimately, Infor Business Cloud helps organizations improve their bottom line by deploying firstclass enterprise application functionality quickly, flexibly, and reliably. You make the most of existing IT investments. And you have the confidence of knowing your solutions are setting new standards for economy and efficiency in business computing today. 641 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY infor.com Godlan, Inc Canal Road Clinton Township, MI About Infor Infor is fundamentally changing the way information is published and consumed in the enterprise, helping 70,000 customers in 194 countries improve operations, drive growth, and quickly adapt to changes in business demands.
