What it does

By consolidating the maintenance, infrastructure and support costs of your computing platform over thousands of customers, Infor yields significant economies of scale which are passed on to you in the form of lower overall cost of ownership. Furthermore, since we amortise costs over the period of ownership, you avoid the enormous up-front capital expenditure associated with purchasing outright and benefit from a steady, predictable operating expense cost profile.

The many hidden costs often overlooked by management such as training new technical staff whenever somebody leaves, hardware repairs & maintenance when things break down, on-the-job learning, making and testing backups and implementing security patches, to name but a few, are all consolidated into your single, efficient, monthly payment.


What it means

The peace of mind you gain by operating proven hardware & software configurations managed according to optimised, repeatable processes in a highly secure data centre with redundancy built in, and overseen 24x7 by Infor's technical experts, is unachievable with in-house infrastructure.

You may wish to begin using cloud for back up or recovery, or use it to host development & testing environments, before committing your full production workload... gradually building up your cloud usage and confidence, safe in the knowledge that Infor's technical experts are right behind you with 24x7 support
