We are collecting Infor Clients Cloud Concerns into a list.
Infor Cloud is a completely new product with all that means
What about all our modifications
What happens with our infrastructure investments
Cost of changing the business processes
Compliance for different industries, who is responsible (Irland Tax Regulations…)
Regulations don’t allow us to go to AWS
Mainteinance costs in the long term. 5x as for 13.4
Requires high quality bandwidth all the time
Unclear license models
Operations, ticket when a batch job doesn’t go through. We manage issues like that ourselves quickly today
Performance issues over all
Project costs, not an upgrade, a completely new implementation
Response Times when AWS moves instances, going from 25-35 ms to 5000 ms (AWS can do this without permission)
Subscriptions model. What happens the day you stop paying the fee?
Data growth – archiving. Solutions?
Storage tiers.. higher costs. How to avoid..
No saving in head counts as customers have to hunt Infor doing their job..
AWS is not in our cloud strategy
A general uncertainty and even war in the world makes us wanna keep a computer in the basement
Infor is not following AWS recommendations when it comes to availability zones because of performance issues
Left behind, “we cannot help you because you are on prem”
“Amazon compete with us”
Infor are taking Cloud Suite down during 1 – 4 hours every month. MANDATORY
You can never be backlevel for any reason. You have to apply all new features and functions
Currency change if paid in USD for example (AWS, AZURE warns for 30%+ cost increese 2023)
Consultant firms say there is more for them in the Cloud suite
Cost related to moving data from the cloud (VERY Expensive)
Amazon layoffs. Is Infor their priority?
