Infor unveils service orientated architecture plan

Infor , the business
software consolidator, has launched a service orientated architecture (SOA)
offering that will now be available with its products.

orientated architecture
is based on an event-driven, distributed
architecture that allows orchestration of business events across enterprise
applications and services.

Traditionally the technology has been used in the transport and manufacturing
industries, but business is beginning to deploy it in the financial markets and
compliance spheres too.

The infrastructure will be built into Infor solutions, at no additional cost
to the customer, and will be delivered with regular product upgrades.

‘Infor Open SOA is the result of a dialogue we had with our customers, who
told us they wanted the benefits of SOA, without the upfront costs, lengthy
implementations and all the undue complexities,’ said
Schaper, CEO of Infor
