- Unifies multiple applications that historically were deployed independently
- Verticals covered include F&B, industrial manufacturing, healthcare, defence
BUSINESS application software provider Infor has introduced to the Malaysian market Infor CloudSuite, which it said was the first group of industry-specific application suites available on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud.
Each industry suite within Infor CloudSuite is built by unifying multiple applications that historically were deployed independently, to holistically support core business functions by industry, the company said in a statement.
This core, along with fast and simple provisioning and a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) pricing model, will enable Infor CloudSuite to change the way enterprise software is delivered to and consumed by customers.
“Malaysian manufacturing, F&B (food and beverage), logistics and other businesses are increasingly integrating into the greater Asean regional and global markets,” Infor Asean vice president Helen Masters (pice above) said in Kuala Lumpur.
“By providing manufacturers and enterprises with the business tools they need, and the flexibility and efficiency of cloud-based solutions, Malaysian managers can focus on gaining market share and expanding business opportunities throughout the region,” she added.

Infor will leverage the AWS cloud infrastructure to allow customers to take advantage of Amazon’s expertise and economies of scale to access resources when they need them, on-demand and with auto-scaling built into the Infor applications.
Infor said it is in the process of consolidating existing subscribers and transitioning current internal infrastructure to the AWS platform, whose services are provided in 10 regions, with 25 availability zones and 51 Amazon CloudFront Edge locations globally.
“AWS has the best and most advanced cloud infrastructure in the world, providing a delivery model, cost structure, and focus on operational excellence that perfectly complements and enhances our products,” said Masters.
The Infor CloudSuite platform for Malaysia includes solutions for the following verticals: F&B, fashion, industrial manufacturing, healthcare, business, hospitality, aerospace and defence, and automotive.
