Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced Infor CloudSuiteTM Academy, a new training program for Infor Channel partners designed to equip them with the critical skills and knowledge necessary to help customers select and implement Infor applications in the cloud. The initiative will offer practical, hands-on instruction on how to best market, demonstrate, license and deploy Infor CloudSuiteTM Industrial and Infor CloudSuiteTM Business, two of Infor's fully integrated, industry-specific solution suites available on Amazon Web Services' (AWS) cloud.
Open to Infor Channel partners globally, Infor CloudSuite Academy will rely on a blended format including live, virtual and self-paced learning. The program is also role-based, helping to ensure that sales, pre-sales and implementation-focused employees receive training that is specific to their expertise and position within the company. Infor CloudSuite Academy is designed to help partners increase competitive differentiation and shorten time to revenue by solidifying their credibility as a cloud expert within the market.
"Infor CloudSuite offerings provide the same level of deep, industry-specific functionality as on-premise suites, but with the flexibility and differentiated cost structure enabled by a cloud environment," said Gerard Frey, vice president, Infor Partner Network. "Infor CloudSuite Academy enables partners to add two of Infor's most innovative cloud solutions to their product portfolios, facilitating increased profitability by giving them thorough training on cloud business practices and access to a new group of prospects, so they continue to grow their businesses as members of the Infor Partner Network (IPN)."
Partners receive the Infor CloudSuite Certification upon completion of the program. Participating IPN members can also benefit from a competitive compensation model and continued solution provisioning and account support from Infor. Registration for Infor CloudSuite Academy will officially open in December 2014. For more information, IPN members should visit inforpartnernetwork/cloudsuiteacademy.com or contact ipn[.]infor.com.
