Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, has relied on AWS as its cloud infrastructure for nearly a decade to deliver secure, scalable, innovative, and compliant solutions that transform how companies utilize technology to achieve their goals. Infor uses AWS services, such as Amazon SageMaker and edge computing, to develop richer, more complete solutions that help businesses gain more access to and insights from their data, processes, and customer relationships. In 2014, Infor once famously remarked, "Friends don’t let friends build data centers,” setting the stage for its cloud-first strategy. On AWS, Infor is empowered to focus on its mission of helping customers accelerate winning digital strategies.
Infor Builds the Future of Industry Enterprise Cloud Applications on AWS
In a conversation with Kevin Samuelson, Infor CEO, and Soma Somasundaram, Infor CTO, learn how Infor leverages data to continually improve business outcomes. Rod Johnson, Infor Global President and CRO and Nancy Matternberger, Infor CCO share how the partnership with AWS helps Infor exceed customer expectations with a common culture.
When we set out to build our software for the cloud, like many companies we had a choice. We could not just build the software, but we could also build data centers to run the software. And the thought of trying to do that on our own really made no sense. That's just not what we're good at. The idea that we could partner with someone who's extraordinary at that, who has the best security around, who can make sure uptime is unmatched, who can put data centers anywhere in the world, we view it as a huge competitive advantage."

AWS Supports Infor's Rapid Expansion to New Markets with the Agility of the Cloud
When Infor made the decision to move to the cloud and offer comprehensive industry suites, the company identified many customer advantages. “Our business was growing in places like Asia and Europe, and we wanted to be able to bring up applications faster for customers in those regions,” says Randy Young, director of cloud operations at Infor. “To do that, we needed more agility, and building data centers did not make sense for our customers and the business. We wanted to get away from managing our own hardware procurement and provisioning."
We’ve seen much stronger performance for our database-backup workloads with the Amazon EBS st1 volumes, and we’re also saving 75% on our monthly backup costs."

How Infor Moved to Fully Managed SMB Storage, Reducing Costs by 50%
Storage is a strategic component of the enterprise business cloud software products at Infor. Infor migrated its shared storage to fully managed Amazon FSx from a third-party hosted solution. After moving about 11 TB of data in three Regions, Infor was able to reduce its storage costs by about 50%. With less time and money spent on data storage, this freed up Infor's teams to focus on delivering for customers, without having to worry about pre-provisioning storage as solutions scale. Learn about Infor's migration path for its most successful Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) commercial software offerings, called Infor LN, to AWS.
We constantly ask ourselves, ‘How do we dramatically shrink the time it takes to deliver new technologies, tools, data, and insights to users?’"
