InforInfor has introduced Infor Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) 10x. Probably more important is the nugget buried at the end of the company’s press release which says the 10.4 version of S&OP is a core component of the Infor Integrated Business Planning suite, to be announced this year. The press release also utilizes a string of Infor-specific language about the 10x technology utilizing the Infor Ion middleware and its Ming.le social collaboration engine that went into baking this cake.

(My initial try in writing this sentence called it a strangle of language. Probably a better description). In the release, a component called S&OP Xpress provides best-practice pre-built content to enable rapid implementations. Xpress incorporates includes preconfigured reporting, workflows, KPIs and planning. There is also a playbook component to organize pre-S&OP meeting reports into structured chapters and automatically generate formatted PowerPoint presentations and the product is equipped with Infor GIS capabilities to visualized where demand and supply are occurring, where products perform best and the areas in which costs are a concern. Oh, there is no more detail on the upcoming suite in the release.
