Gold Coast readies for Commonwealth Games with Infor

The City of Gold Coast's Infor Cloud deployment is about to go live.

During his keynote presentation at Inforum 2017, Infor president Stephen Scholl (pictured) described the City of Gold Coast as one of the company's "great customers" alongside Amazon, Ford and Schneider Electric.

Inforum CloudSuite has been adopted by the City of Gold Coast as part of the technology platform for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The project will go live in the next few days, Scholl said, with other functions including rates, utility billing and permit applications (eg, for building work).

When the deal was signed in late 2015, it was reportedly Infor's largest SaaS deal to date.

Infor is particularly strong in the public sector in Australia and New Zealand, observed vice-president for South Asia, ASEAN and Pacific Helen Masters.

Healthcare is the sector with the fastest growing adoption of CloudSuite, Scholl noted.
