Infor LN Recognized as Leader in ERP by Nucleus Research

Ability to Integrate With Other Applications, In-Context Business Intelligence, and Easy Configuration Contribute to Success

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Infor LN has been recognized as a Leader among enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications in Nucleus Research's latest Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Resource Planning. The ERP Value Matrix is based on functionality and usability, the two core measures that Nucleus has found indicate an application's ability to deliver initial ROI and, ultimately, maximum value over time. Nucleus Research placed vendors in the ERP Leader category who have invested in both functionality and usability features that are most likely to deliver the greatest potential returns.

"One of the major strengths of Infor LN is its ability to integrate with other business software solutions such as ERP and PLM through the Infor ION Suite, which can also be used for business process and workflow management," said Gabriel Gheorghiu, principal analyst, Nucleus Research. "Infor Workspace provides in-context business intelligence and a common look and feel across Infor products."

Scores for usability are based on intuitiveness of the application, availability of role-based interfaces, training requirements, and productivity impact on users. Similarly, composite scores for functionality are based on the breadth and repeatability of functionality in the core application, the availability and ease of integration of add-on functionality that delivers additional benefit, and the vendors' investment in innovative functionality outside the core that will deliver additional benefits.

Infor LN is a powerful and comprehensive system for managing the demands of complex manufacturing, distribution, and service industries. Its deep functionality provides control over the complexities of global operations.

"Infor made some important announcements in the past 12 months regarding Infor LN. The first announcement was its availability on the IBM Pure Systems platform, then Infor announced LN was certified as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) compliant, meaning the solution can be used successfully by companies that are, or intend to become, IFRS compliant," said Gheorghiu.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
