NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) - Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Infor Human Capital Management (HCM) has been recognized as a Leader among human capital management applications in Nucleus Research's latest Technology Value Matrix for Human Capital Management (HCM). Nucleus Research placed vendors in the Leader category who continue to improve in offering HCM solutions that are legitimately end-to-end, helping to enable employers to practice HCM as an interconnected discipline.

"Infor remains a Leader in the HCM Value Matrix. Over several years Infor has put together an HCM suite comprising natively developed functionality and acquired applications together covering the following: new-hire on-boarding, off-boarding, employee rewards management, payroll, time and attendance, scheduling, absence management, compensation management, goal-setting, learning management, advanced pre-hiring assessment, financial management, and elements of core HR," said Brent Skinner, analyst, Nucleus Research. "With the release of its latest Infor CloudSuite HCM, the vendor has consolidated a number of these different platforms for HR technology. Notable new capabilities and integrations found in the newest release of Infor CloudSuite HCM address key components of talent management, with data science embedded throughout the suite."

Nucleus Research also states that Infor continues to expand globally, in Q3 of 2016 announcing significant investments in India, the Middle East, and Africa -- with a focus on HCM. In addition, it states that Infor continues, as well, to make good on providing users with a discernible, achievable path to the cloud, namely with the latest release of Infor CloudSuite HCM. Nucleus Research sees Infor making further progress in helping users make sense of their Infor-based applications' potential to work in concert -- and in bringing remaining on premise functionality fully into the cloud.1

"Infor is honored to be named a Leader again by Nucleus Research, as it further validates all of the key investments and product innovations that we have incorporated over the past year to build our cloud-based, industry-specific HCM applications," said Ken Fung, senior director, Strategy, HCM and Learning, Infor.
