Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series started by analyzing a certain change of the guard and a related product strategy shift at Infor.

Microsoft’s Underlying Platform Parts for Enterprise Applications: Somewhat Explained - Part 4


Part 3 of this blog series analyzed the ever-evolving user interface (UI) and visualization technologies, and related approaches of Microsoft and other independent software vendors (ISVs).

IFS decided not to use WPF as the technology for building UI initially but plans to do so for its next major update due in a couple of years, when it also expects the availability of Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 , which the vendor believes will serve its needs well. It is also currently possible to mix WPF and Windows Forms in the same application, since the interoperability apparently works very well. Read More

Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy - Part 1


2010 has certainly been an interesting (if not a crossroads) year for Infor. Namely, after a number of new high-profile hires at the beginning of the year, which signalled Infor’s intention to be taken seriously, the vendor then entered an eerily quieter period of several months. Except for the ongoing vocal marketing campaign entitled “Down with Big ERP” with witty

Meet the New (Revolutionized) Progress Software


According to TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic, some solid, growing, and profitable software companies never get the respect they deserve. Progress Software is one such company.

Siemens’ Active Workspace Handles PLM Data Complexity


Today, many companies have massive amounts of information generated from their product lifecycle processes currently lying dormant, often spread across many sites, departments, and divisions, and located in several different unconnected databases.

Infor24: Demystifying Infor’s Cloud Strategy - Part 1


Anyone that is still vociferously doubting and denying the future of cloud computing and its near-mainstream nature will sound as strange and nutty as some US Senate hopefuls that still proudly deny evolution and climate change (while admitting to “dabbling with witchcraft” in the not-too-distant past).
