  • Reporting Capabilities in Infor CloudSuite
    Something else that's really important when you look at CloudSuite is the robustness of the reporting. This aspect of the new Infor CloudSuite solution is really driven by two major factors. First, is the ability to set up GL dimensions, which are indexed. You no longer have to work around the limitation of your account unit activity to track different information. Secondly, you can analyze this information through the self-service tools Infor puts at your fingertips.

  • The Technical Backend of the Cloud vs. On-Premises
    I know that for some organizations considering a move to the cloud, there's some hesitation of not being in control of the underlying hardware or data center that they’re running. It feels like maybe there's a bit of a risk here in not managing and owning all the infrastructure. But I feel like there's a false sense of security that can come with this attitude, because even organizations that have invested in a robust disaster recovery plan have discovered that they’re not always as fail-saf...

  • The Project Scope & Approach for an RPI Pre-Planning Event
    Today we’re going to discuss the project scoping and approach. We begin with some as-is discovery where we're really focused on understanding how this organization has made use of Lawson, or potentially other third-party systems whose functionality will impact the move to CloudSuite. This action is always taken with an eye on practical scoping, so it's not a full-blown optimization assessment. We're really honing in on those details that are pertinent to the work effort and pla...

  • Preparing for an RPI Pre-Planning Event
    A question we often get from clients who are looking to implement CloudSuite is what should an organization do to prepare for an RPI pre-planning event? While I think it’s the same as planning for an engagement, there are basically two things to consider. The first is that the better you both understand and document your current processes and pain points, the better you can articulate them to a consultant. This way we already know what you’re looking to achieve from the beginning ins...
