Infor tries for reinvention with Infor10 software launch

13.09.2011

While Infor10 represents a major engineering effort, it's ready for market, according to Phillips.

"We have production customers with all of this stuff," Phillips said.

About 60 customers are working with ION, a sample size that has given Infor the ability to test ION thoroughly. "There's less to test," he added. "It's not 70 CDs. There's only so many things that can happen."

Partners will need some time to get up to snuff on Infor10, he said. "We have an education task ahead of us. We're probably running faster than the partners are used to seeing Infor go."

Infor10 also includes a number of offerings packaged for various industries, but Infor also intends to go after "micro-verticals," or companies within subsets of broader categories.
