Infor and Ciber Expand Partnership to Europe

Collaboration Further Enhances Ecosystem of Major Systems Integrators for Infor Applications

NEW YORK, NY and GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO--(Marketwired - February 17, 2015) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, and Ciber®, a leading global IT consulting company, today announced an expansion of their partnership to include Europe in addition to North America. Building on strong momentum in the U.S. and Canada, the companies will now partner to offer implementation, integration and upgrade services to customers across Europe. By providing resources with insight specific to the region, Infor and Ciber will work together to help customers upgrade their applications to offer the full benefits of the more than $1 billion in R&D investment by Infor since 2011.

"Modernizing existing deployments is critical for customers to take advantage of the step change Infor has delivered in cloud, mobile, social and analytic capabilities and the deep industry functionality that helps companies work smarter and faster," said Stephan Scholl, president of Infor. "Ciber has been a key partner for Infor for many years, and the expansion of our relationship will help more customers capitalize on their Infor applications by increasing the scale and expertise of Infor's services network."

In Europe, Ciber will work specifically with Infor M3 and the Infor Lawson suite, which includes industry-specific applications for financial, human resource and supply chain management. With more than 300 joint customers in North America, Ciber has been an Infor Alliance partner since the program's inception and was recently named an Infor Alliance partner of the year.

"Our partnership with Infor and expansion of joint services into the European market is a strategic imperative for Ciber," said Michael Boustridge, president and chief executive officer at Ciber. "The momentum has already begun as a number of our executive leaders from the Infor practice recently attended EMEA Inforum to position Ciber as a market leader."

As part of the alliance, Ciber will collaborate with Infor Consulting Services on a joint initiative to upgrade customers to the latest Infor releases for the newest features and functionality. The combined knowledge and expertise of both teams allows companies the opportunity to maximize the potential benefits of deepening their Infor footprint.
