Infor executives and the Infor Partner Network (IPN) team will connect with more than 300 attendees to deliver first-hand updates on the latest innovations, including Infor 10x, Infor Ming.le and Infor ION, enhancements to the IPN, achievements in FY13, and goals for FY2014, Infor said.
The evolution of the IPN will be one of the key talking points of the conference. Infor said that it is making new investments into the programme, and has seen successful results from FY13 to prove it. The vendor will also showcase its planned IPN initiatives – including new incentives and reward components – for the ongoing year.
In terms of products, Infor will use the conference to continue showcasing 10x, its latest enterprise release. The vendor will also speak about the role of EMEA partners in the Infor 10x landscape and how it will open doors for new customers. The vendor will also discuss its hybrid approach to cloud, and the importance of partners in promoting Infor’s cloud initiatives.
Infor will also continue to push its micro-vertical strategy at the conference. Infor wants a micro-vertical-focused partner programme that allows partners to build industry-specific product extensions using Infor Mongoose, so the vendor will spend much time explaining to partners how this can be done. Aside from this, Infor will also discuss the availability of a content syndication platform and implementation accelerators.
Naturally, the conference will conclude with a ceremony that recognises new partners and honours the stand-out EMEA partners of the year.
“The EMEA Partner Conference gives us an opportunity to interact with partners across EMEA to not only discuss how we’re building out the Infor Partner Network, but to gain their feedback on how we can continue to enhance our relationships and utilise them for strategic advancement,” said Jeff Abbott, Senior Vice President, Global Alliances, Channels, Telesales and Field Marketing, Infor.
“Attendees will learn about how we’re helping partners connect faster, market faster, and sell faster through our ongoing investment in partner initiatives.”
