Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced Infor CloudSuite™ Aerospace & Defense (A&D) version 11.1, which offers industry customers expanded access to applications within the cloud environment. The latest version of Infor CloudSuite A&D expands upon Infor's offerings available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), combining beautiful software with rich industry functionality. Infor CloudSuite A&D version 11.1 continues to support Infor's commitment to delivering specialized micro-vertical applications that are able to meet the demands of the aerospace and defense industry.
The latest release of Infor CloudSuite A&D version 11.1 underscores Infor's commitment to the aerospace and defense industry. This enhanced version of Infor CloudSuite A&D, including upgrades to the user interface using HTML5, supports the extra mile capabilities of the aerospace and defense micro-vertical in the following functional business process areas;
• project manufacturing;
• contracts and billing;
• governance, risks and compliance (GRC);
• enhanced business analytics dashboards; and
• integrated document management.
Optional add-on components such as Supplier Exchange, Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Infor Dynamic Enterprise Performance Management (d/EPM) and Configure Price Quote (CPQ) are now available.
The release of Infor CloudSuite A&D provides Infor customers with a greater range of access when utilizing core industry applications. The upgrade also offers customers access to industry specific analytics, and utilizes Infor ION®, a purpose-built middleware and social collaboration engine Infor Ming.leTM, which facilitates internal and external communications between customers and their suppliers. Infor CloudSuite A&D version 11.1 uses Infor LN, a core integrated ERP system, for an enhanced look and feel. This upgrade also uses Infor Approva for improved usage monitoring and process monitoring. These enhancements support companies of all sizes, from one location to multi-national, by allowing users to view real-time data at any time and from any location.
With Infor CloudSuite A&D version 11.1, customers experience a faster return on investment (ROI) and a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO), as cloud delivery with AWS is managed through a monthly subscription. By implementing these solutions in the cloud as opposed to on-premise, there is no need to purchase additional onsite servers and hardware, Infor CloudSuite A&D version 11.1 is more like an operating expense rather than a capital expense.
"Aerospace and defense manufacturers are consistently looking for new ways to reduce overhead and cut costs while having the agility and speed to respond to ever changing business conditions," said Edward Talerico, industry director, Aerospace & Defense, Infor. "Infor CloudSuite A&D version 11.1 gives our customers more options and keeps their systems up-to-date with the latest technologies. This update will allow customers to further grow their businesses, maximize their IT budgets, and increase overall satisfaction."
