Report Review

Infor recently announced Infor SyteLine 9.0, a major release of its renowned enterprise resource planning (ERP) application used by more than 5,000 customer locations around the world. This product, which has been around for more than 27 years, and was once known under the Symix, and Frontstep brands (see figure 1), is Infor’s singular multitenant software as a service (SaaS)/cloud ERP offering; it even features the Mongoose platform as a service (PaaS) for partner solutions and end-user system extensions. Given SyteLine’s significant global install base, modern technology, and industry aptitude, one should expect that the product will get as much investment as other Infor’s upper-range ERP products, i.e., Infor LN, Infor M3, and Infor S3.

Infor SyteLine incorporates the latest Infor technology innovations of the Infor 10x platform and broad support for the Infor Ming.le social user experience, Infor ION middleware, and Infor Business Intelligence (BI) framework. Its Web-based technology turns global silo systems into synchronized ones “without borders.” The ERP product has had some pretty big releases, about every 15 months, but this is the ‘biggest’ one and is a new version with an updated user experience that has been in the works for quite some time.
