  • A Step in the Right Direction
    This past week, I spent three days in New York City at Infor’s Executive Offices. It was a great visit, and the weather ranged from 30 to 70 degrees, sunny and rainy, and ready to snow as I left. What diversity and what a time in the city that never sleeps. I attended Infor’s Inaugural HCM Partner Summit where they updated us on the latest products, strategy, and marketing in and around the entire HCM Suite. It was great to get a status update on the global payroll strategy and v11 Landmark Payroll: anyone interested in being a v11 Payroll Beta? We also got to hear the executive commitment around HCM product development, strategy, and where Infor is headed from Charles Phillips, Stephan Scholl, and Soma Somasundaram, who joined the Summit.
