This IDC Perspective provides our review and analysis of Inforum 2019, held in New Orleans, based on executive and customer presentations as well as discussions. A team of IDC analysts recently attended the event, which is Infor's annual gathering of customers, service providers, and industry analysts."A critical success factor for Infor, and other large enterprise application platform providers, is to provide industry-specific offerings that meet unique challenges, for any size company. To that end, Infor has a set of 12 industry CloudSuites that contain 60% 'purpose built' core capabilities and processes, while 10% of the capability is unique and 30% is typically configured. As other enterprise application providers continue to develop their industry offerings, it becomes increasingly critical to complement this with a focus on a clean, visually compelling UI, as well as a rapid, flexible deployment approach for initial implementations and ongoing application updates," said Jeff Hojlo, program director, Product Innovation Strategies at IDC.
