Comprehensive software reviews to make better IT decisions
Infor Forms Strategic Partnership With Signavio
The Infor Implementation Accelerators, provided to customers since 2013, are preconfigured industry solutions accompanied by project plans that provide more predictable results. The Signavio value proposition is to help drive value from the implementation of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. This is significant, as Info-Tech research shows that average ERP implementation only delivers 30% of the expected value.
The partnership will add the Signavio Business Transformation Suite to the Infor Implementation Accelerators. The Suite includes the Signavio Collaboration Hub for a central repository of knowledge sharing as well as tools for mapping processes, including real-time mapping of actual business processes for analysis.

Thinking about choosing a new software vendor but don't know where to start? Narrow down your shortlist by focusing on software that has received an Info-Tech Research Group award. New data from SoftwareReviews shows that organizations reported higher satisfaction when they switched to software that had received an Info-Tech award.
The impact of COVID-19, as it became a global pandemic in Q1 of 2020, has affected user sentiment toward software during a growing period of fear, uncertainty, and doubt. To analyze the impact, SoftwareReviews compared Satisfaction (willingness to recommend to a peer), ability to deliver Business Value (fair cost to value), and Likeliness to Renew prior to March 10 and post March 10.
An enterprise application selection or implementation has most likely been heavily impacted by COVID-19. Do not hit the brakes; stopping and restarting projects increases the risk of failure. Slow down or speed up? Which is the right strategy for your organization?
The math did not add up for SAP to sunset license support for legacy ECC/Business Suite 7 clients, as we predicted. I’ve fielded numerous calls asking, “Will SAP hold firm on its 2025 end-of-support date?" We finally have SAP’s answer: a resounding “NO.”
SAP customers seeking to move to S/4HANA must navigate four distinct license models, each tied to a separate deployment model (perpetual license, subscription via HEC, S/4HANA Cloud Single-Tenant, or S/4HANA Public Cloud). This note explores the license characteristics and commercial options available when choosing to procure perpetual licenses for S/4HANA.
SAP’s native-cloud play through S/4HANA dangled the hopes of a simplified license structure to SAP customers. Instead, SAP customers now must navigate four distinct license models, each tied to a separate deployment model.
SAP S/4HANA and HANA Licensing Series – Part IV: ECC End-of-Support Date in 2025 Looms Large for CIOs
SAP continues to claim robust adoption of S/4HANA while cajoling customers to migrate. Should ECC customers cave into the demands and promises of S/4HANA? Or should they stay the course and call SAP’s bluff on the looming end-of-support date?
Oracle reported slightly better-than-expected Q2 FY20 results, but despite substantial revenue numbers and high growth areas such as Oracle Cloud, Fusion ERP, and Autonomous Database, it’s unclear when these market segments will accelerate revenue growth materially.
Artificial intelligence continues to fuel the arms race among ERP vendors. Earlier this year, Oracle announced that it has extended the AI (machine learning, to be more precise) capabilities within the ERP Cloud and EPM Cloud products.
