Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series started by analyzing a certain change of the guard and a related product strategy shift at Infor.

Since these “reviled Big ERP” guys have much larger teams and wherewithal, the Infor numbers might not stack up.

Apparently, various instances of a process (called cases) can be changed midstream.
