Infor informs of 'Enterprise Asset Management Software' Magic Quadrant leadership position

By

Recognised for its "Ability to Execute, and Completeness of Vision," Infor has been recognised as a Leader in the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Asset Management Software for Infor EAM.

Billing itself as a "leading provider of beautiful business applications specialised by industry and built for the cloud", Infor is naturally proud to be on this particular new magic quadrant.

Infor points to Gartner, who states that: "Leaders combine the characteristics of vision and thought leadership with a strong ability to execute. Leaders in the EAM market are present in a high percentage of EAM evaluations, and they win a significant number of them. They have robust core functionality and offer reasonable — although not necessarily leading-edge — capabilities in extended EAM areas.

"To be a Leader, a vendor doesn't necessarily need to have the absolute broadest or deepest EAM application. Its offerings needs to meet a set requirements in complex industries without significant modifications, and references must be available to validate this. Leaders must anticipate where customer demands, markets and technology are moving, and must have strategies to support these emerging requirements ahead of actual customer demand.

"Leading vendors should have coherent strategies to support IoT and OT integration and APM, and must invest in, and have processes to exploit, innovation. Leaders also have market momentum and strong client satisfaction - both in the vendor's local markets, as well as internationally. Because Leaders are often well-established in leading-edge and complex user environments, they benefit from a user community that helps them remain in the forefront of emerging needs."

Infor EAM tell us that it is "a cloud-enabled enterprise asset management solution that is designed to help improve asset performance, with rich built-in functionality and industry-specific editions".

"The solution uses predictive and preventive technologies to help extend asset life and increase efficiency. In addition, Infor EAM is supported on all mobile devices, operating systems, and screen sizes for on-the-fly fieldwork and informed decision making."

Kevin Curry, senior vice-president, Global Public Sector, Infor, said: "Infor understands the importance of scalability, and the need for organisations to have modern software systems that are able to support them as they grow, change, and evolve in complex business environments."

Kevin Price, Infor EAM technical product evangelist, said: "To us, being named a Leader by Gartner further proves our commitment to help customers understand the connection between asset performance and top-line growth.
