Infor Announces Focused Business Intelligence Offerings

Robust BI Platform Comprised of Infor10 Business Intelligence, Infor10 ION Intelligence and Advanced Reporting and Analytics

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 23, 2012) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced newly focused business intelligence offerings, which now consist of two distinct groups of solutions, each aimed at addressing specific business requirements. By targeting well-defined business needs, Infor's business intelligence and performance management portfolio reflect the company's emphasis on delivering the industry-specific solutions that are tailored to customer needs.

Components of the Infor BI Platform include:

  • Infor10 Business Intelligence (BI) is a best-of-breed performance management solution that enhances and improves the tools managers already use every day. It simplifies complex choices and improves a company's ability to make effective plans and communicate those plans to everyone who needs to be included.
  • Infor10 ION Intelligence incorporates contextually relevant business intelligence features into the company's innovative Infor10 ION Workspace user interface. Users of Infor10 products in all categories will gain the benefits of ION's built-in business intelligence capabilities, without needing to know anything about business intelligence solutions -- critical information will simply be presented when it's relevant to the user's current task.
  • Advanced reporting and analytics will also be part of Infor10 ION Intelligence, which draws on all business systems connected to the ION network to deliver more complete, accurate, and timely reporting and analysis.

Infor10 ION Intelligence is available to customers who plan to run it in conjunction with other Infor10 applications, while Infor10 ION Business Intelligence (BI) is available as a stand-alone solution.

"Because of the complexity and velocity of today's business environment, effective business intelligence tools are essential," says Rod Radojevic, Director of Product and Industry Marketing for Infor's business intelligence solutions. "That's why we've made it our highest priority to deliver the most focused, industry specific capabilities to our business intelligence and corporate performance management customers."
