BUSINESS TECH | Infor, Signavio announce strategic partnership
NEW YORK AND BERLIN –– Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, and Signavio, a leading provider of business transformation solutions, based in Berlin, Germany, and Burlington, Massachusetts, announced on Monday a strategic partnership focused on delivering stronger implementation accelerators to Infor customers around the globe. The collaboration between Infor and Signavio is anticipated to add value in how both companies deliver solutions and services to organizations seeking to replace their existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions with new, modern, industry-specific applications.
“Process management is a critical, yet often elusive, component for businesses navigating digital transformation,” said Dr. Gero Decker, chief executive at Signavio. “The partnership between Signavio and Infor is structured to enable customers to unleash the power of process by moving at the speed of insights. Ultimately, we believe customers can benefit from Signavio’s powerful process mining and process management capabilities, combined with Infor’s Implementation Accelerators, which can help enable smarter and more informed decisions across a variety of business functions.”
Implementation Accelerators are preconfigured solutions based on the latest version of applicable Infor application suites. They are designed to deliver certain core industry application processes and to assist with reduced implementation times, risks and costs for customers in specific industries. Now powered by Signavio, a web-based business process modeling and intelligence tool, Infor customers utilizing an Implementation Accelerator can promptly be put on the path to enhanced business excellence. Part of the Signavio Business Transformation Suite, the Process Manager and Process Intelligence are designed to capture, connect, and communicate how work is done and where decisions are made, and deliver that information to Signavio Collaboration Hub. Having visible processes across an organization can help users make better decisions, faster.
“As organizations face continued pressure to operate faster and more efficiently, we believe upgrading to modern, industry-specific ERP technology that provides the benefits of cloud computing, big data and artificial intelligence, is paramount to success,” said Soma Somasundaram, Infor president of products and chief technology officer. “Signavio’s process mining and intelligence technology can provide Infor customers the platform to support the alignment of suggested practices and business processes delivered by our Industry Implementation Accelerators against real-time transactional data generated by Infor suite of applications, which can be used to help companies identify and resolve deviations from such practices and can assist and support organizations in improving business performance, based on real data.”
