Infor has launched Infor ION, designed to enable companies of all sizes to benefit from advanced yet simple application integration, business process management and shared data reporting.

By automating the most difficult data-sharing tasks, Infor ION gives mid-market companies the ability to more quickly and easily organize, analyze and collaborate on information from throughout their operations.

The services use open data standards, allowing them to securely integrate information from Infor and non-Infor applications.

The company plans to make the following four Infor ION services available in the fourth quarter of this year: Infor ION Desk – intuitive, browser-based interface used to configure all Infor ION services; Infor ION Connect – service responsible for document-based communication and secure sharing of data across all applications on-premise, in the cloud and in hybrid implementations; Infor ION Event Management – business process management (BPM) service that automatically monitors status of tasks in relation to promised completion or established service-level agreements (SLAs) and alerts users of exceptions so they can be proactively managed; and Infor ION Workflow – works in conjunction with Infor ION Event Management, enabling automated document routing and approvals via workflows that may involve multiple Infor and non-Infor applications.

Infor ION uses a differentiated approach to data sharing that is said to more closely align with the way businesses operate in the real world.

It applies this approach to business applications, exchanging complete electronic business documents that include all data associated with a particular business event .

By including all information needed to make decisions on an event in a single electronic document, Infor ION reduces the number of interactions required between applications, reducing overall complexity.

It also includes functionality designed to simplify and lower the cost of deployment and use, including: One Click Install – the ability to install all Infor ION services by clicking once within a unified installation wizard; lightweight design – allowing the services to run on the same server as Infor applications, eliminating the need for additional hardware purchases; intuitive management – with Infor ION Desk, IT users and end-users can proactively monitor and manage their workflow status and document traffic, identify workflow exceptions, monitor key performance indicators and gain visibility into overall business network efficiency.
