Infor Debuts Platform for IoT Value Optimization


The platform, Infor IoT, is designed to provide real-time condition assessment.

Industry-specific cloud application provider Infor has launched a new platform to optimize the value of IoT devices. This IoT value optimization includes a multi-tenant deployment that provides secure IoT sensor data ingestion from any source at scale.

The company synchronizes data with its EAM asset information to bring deeper context to insights by:

  • Blending IoT and transactional data
  • Improving exception detection and reporting
  • Optimizing workflows
  • Enhancing AI and analytics

Infor IoT is integrated with Amazon Web Services and provides IoT analytics via the cloud-based business intelligence platform Birst. Birst gathers data from hundreds of thousands of IoT. The company converts that data into metric frameworks for improved analytics, operational efficiency, sales and marketing, safety and more.

“Infor will deliver a step change in complex asset management through this IoT platform, and offer its customer base something that has been unattainable in the past,” said Kevin Price, Technical Product Evangelist and Product Strategist, Infor EAM. “With wide-reaching improvements in energy, efficiency, and performance reliability, organizations can truly understand the condition of a multitude of assets in real-time, through confident aggregation of different sources inside and outside a given solution deployment.”

Customers at last week’s Inforum saw Infor EAM IoT value optimization in use via real-time shuttle bus tracking. IoT sensors gathered condition monitoring data and sent it to Infor EAM via Infor Data Lake. The available data included GPS location, ambient temperature, light level, altitude and more.
