Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced Infor Xi, an enterprise technology platform for next-generation applications. Building on its current Infor 10x platform, Infor Xi will deliver a major step in achieving the company’s vision for cloud applications that address specific industry needs with responsive 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 Duncan Angove, president of Infor. “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.”

The three major pillars of Infor Xi are:

  • Enhanced Cloud - Infor Xi applications will include multi-tenancy and support for open source systems, helping speed performance, boost scale and reduce cost. Infor will leverage Amazon Web Services’ cloud infrastructure to allow customers to take advantage of Amazon’s expertise and economies of scale, and leading open source solutions including Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise Middleware, and EnterpriseDB’s Postgres Plus database
  • Mobile-First Design - Applications will be engineered to publish standard application programming interfaces (APIs) that further enable Infor to differentiate on user experience through responsive design that delivers real-time data and analytics optimized for specific mobile devices
  • Advanced Science - Powered by Infor Dynamic Science Labs, applications will help companies make decisions with the predictive power of science, anticipating problems and responding with solutions, uncovering opportunities and recommending next steps, and helping answer an organization’s most pressing questions

Infor Xi 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 pervasive 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 CloudSuiteTM industry suites, enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM), human capital management (HCM), customer relationship management (CRM), and supply chain management (SCM).
