Application software firm Infor has announced the release of Infor XI, an enterprise technology platform for next-generation applications.
Building on its current Infor 10x platform, Infor XI aims to address cloud applications for specific industry needs with design infused with machine-learning and Big Data analytics.
“Modern technologies like the cloud, Big Data, machine-learning, and mobility have created new and exciting engines for innovation and increased the pressure on companies to stay current and competitive,” said Lee Miles, Regional Director, Infor, Middle East. “Infor has spent more than a billion dollars in research and development that will culminate in Infor XI-powered applications that will help our customers stay ahead of the game in today’s rapidly-evolving global business climate.”
Infor XI applications will include multi-tenancy and support for open source systems, and the company will leverage Amazon Web Services’ cloud infrastructure and open source solutions including Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise Middleware.
XI’s applications will be engineered to publish standard application programming interfaces (APIs) and will feature predictive science.
The solution builds upon the company’s latest enterprise release, Infor 10x, which was delivered in 2013 and featured a reinvented HTML5 user experience (SoHo), the Infor Ming.le social collaboration platform, and in-context analytics embedded throughout workflows packaged within the Infor ION integration framework.
Infor is delivering elements of Infor XI now, and will roll the platform out across its product suites, including Infor CloudSuite industry suites, enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM), human capital management (HCM), customer relationship management (CRM), and supply chain management (SCM).
