    There are many benefits of moving to Infor’s CloudSuite – reduced cost, increased security, simplified administration, improved features and functionality. However, there are also a variety of factors, such as resource constraints, competing projects or maintenance of a hybrid environment, that are driving customers to continue to support their on-prem Lawson system. Does this sound like you?

    If your environment is running the Windows 2012 R2 operating system, there are some important action items and longer term decisions relating to its end of life (October 2023). Join the experts at Intellias for a short discussion regarding how these changes may impact your organization.

    Topics Include:

  • Windows Server 2019
  • SQL Server 2019
  • Oracle 19c
  • Amazon Corretto (Oracle Java 8 alternative)

  • Updated AD FS Support
  • Any customer planning to remain on-premise should plan to tackle these initiatives during the 2022/2023 timeframe and start planning for the longer term.

    Decommission Notice - Infor HR Talent (GHR/TM) to HRM Lawson Interface

    Infor recently announced the decommission of a Human Resource Management (HRM) / HR Talent interface for payroll processing. The new Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) based interface will address several known issues by allowing for the movement of data bi-directionally from Infor HR Talent and Infor Human Resources Management (HRM) using flat files, eliminating the use of AGS calls.

    Adopting this new interfacing method will remove functionality limitations to deliver significantly improved performance. This immediately effects customers using version 11.0.36 or higher. However, for those not yet on this release, we recommend you make a plan to take advantage of this new and improved functionality. Join our 15-minute webinar and Q&A session to learn more about this new interface method and discuss approaches for preparing your system, no matter what version you’re on.

    If you'd like to learn more about what your organization needs to do to prepare for this change, reach out to us HERE on our website and Follow us on LinkedIn to stay in the loop on our latest blog posts and webinars!

    Master your Data

    Are you preparing to upgrade to CloudSuite Financials ("CSF")? Plan on reviewing and cleansing master data tables, like the vendor master and item master. These two tables can help your organization analyze and manage expenses. Standardization is the key for both the vendor master and the item master. Have a set naming convention, address, item descriptions and manufacturer number. Since there are a limited number of characters on these fields, it is important to utilize a standard abbreviation method. This will ensure that details are entered the same and minimize the possibility of duplicates.
