Enterprise Integrator gives you an extended ERP desktop based on the Infor ERP XA Java Architecture. You can
integrate user-written or third-party applications to this client-server architecture easily and quickly, allowing you to
access this information using the same user interface, even navigating to and from Infor ERP XA. Or, you can design
completely separate systems.


Our Enterprise Integrator education is not only designed to teach you the feature/functions of the tool, but also
provide you with examples to get you started on your first project.  Click here to view a class syllabus and click here to register.

As anyone that is using VPi knows, configuring your environment for multiple warehouse planning is tedious.  Administrators need to create separate batch file short-cuts for each warehouse.  


Now, Infor has introduced a new launch pad application for easy configuration and deployment of multiple warehouses with shortcuts to run separately.

sales and professional services, have done a great job in keeping things going well through a year of significant change.  We wrestle with peak demands on selected resources and are looking to remedy that as quickly as possible, but it is definitely one of the “nice to have” problems if there is such a thing.  

Going forward ISE continues to invest in selling and supporting Infor, IBM and Paper-Less products. Our ION skills are among the best available.  ISE has been designated as an Infor Partner for CPQ, Infor’s product configurator tool, and we have been educating ourselves on Infor Xi and CRM, with current customer implementations for both.  We have also begun to successfully navigate into the world of Syteline and CloudSuite Industrial with our sales skills expanding and our services capabilities will quickly follow.  We have several Syteline customers and several new opportunities that will accelerate our exposure, so please keep us in mind as your ERP needs evolve.  We also intend to expand our Professional Services team by offering skills to support .NET and Java development to meet the need for modern user experiences against the iSeries database.  Cloud solutions are also well on our radar through the evolution of Infor’s product strategies as well as our own with IBM Cloud offerings and their Watson cognitive intelligence tool.  As we learn more about these tools we will certainly communicate our readiness to you, but in the meantime if you have interests that are aligned with these strategies please let us know.   

Paper-Less has begun to implement several new initiatives, one of which is a new dashboard tool.  This will allow our standard KPIs to be displayed in a dashboard framework allowing one or several indices to be displayed on the same dashboard.  The same tool can be used to display any custom measurements alongside our standard KPIs which really extends the potential of tailoring the application to the needs of the individual customer.  Paper-Less is also building out our architecture and layering our code such that we can embrace cloud technologies and mobile device deployments in the months and years ahead. 

So there are many things going on here at ISE as we build our products and services to meet the evolving needs of our customer base.  We hope that through the steps we are taking and through the tools we offer we can remain your technology partner for decades into the future as we done for many of you for decades in the past.        

Together with the Infor LX, Infor System 21 and the Enterprise Integrator group, the Infor XA User Group (IXAUG) invites you to participate in the most comprehensive and valuable professional learning and networking opportunity available to every licensed Infor XA, Infor LX or Infor System 21 user.
