Cloud software company Infor has announced it's been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises.

The company's position as one of the Leaders in this Gartner Magic Quadrant was based on Gartner's evaluation of Infor's industry-specific CloudSuite solutions, powered by its LN, M3, and SyteLine ERP (enterprise resource planning) platforms.

"Infor is proud to be recognised as a leader in this Gartner Magic Quadrant," says Infor, chief technology officer and president of products, Soma Somasundaram.

"We believe Infor differentiates itself in the market with our industry-specific, multi-tenant cloud ERP solutions (CloudSuites), which are built with a high degree of API and data-centricity.

"These solutions are smart, preconfigured and modern, so we can help customers grow and digitally transform their businesses, recognise faster time-to-value, and continue to innovate," he says.

"Customers can take advantage of the fact our platform is flexible and extensible, includes built-in industry-standard practices, and is designed to be easy to use."

In the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Cloud ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises, Gartner notes, "The ERP for product-centric enterprises market is accelerating its transition to cloud deployment models. ERP application leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to evaluate cloud ERP application suites as part of a composable ERP strategy."

According to the report, by 2023, organisations that have successfully renovated their ERP platforms will achieve at least a 40% improvement in IT agility to deliver business outcomes.

The report also stated that by 2023, 60% of product-centric enterprises would utilise standardised ERP capabilities on a composable ERP platform. And by 2024, 60% of enterprise SaaS applications will be composed of packaged business capabilities that provide data, analytical insight and operational application services.

Infor CloudSuite solutions are industry-specific and are delivered as cloud services on Amazon Web Services (AWS) secured and scalable infrastructure. Infor CloudSuites utilise Infor's technology platform and Infor OS to power next-generation user experiences, integration and work flows.
