Choosing the Right Path to the Cloud

When it comes to building the right cloud migration strategy for your business needs, it’s critical to consider all deployment options, assess your most important business requirements, and ensure whichever option you choose allows for better system control and performance in the long run.

Here are a few paths to the Cloud users can choose from:


With the Core-to-Cloud approach, organizations can extract data from their core business operations and integrate it with modern, cloud-based solutions across their technical landscape.

This approach enables users to improve system performance, boost engagement between customers and clients, and access all the latest and greatest Infor solutions and other apps in the Cloud.


The AI-to-Cloud method enables holistic business insights and planning operations, making it easier for users to manage their most important data and facilitate more robust connections with artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

By leveraging this approach, organizations can combine enterprise-wide data sources in one location, break down existing data silos, and creating more efficient integrations between their most important enterprise software solutions.


The Edge-to-Cloud approach refers to the process in which enterprise data is no longer confined to a specific data center and is now generated at the edge and stored in the Cloud.

It brings the comprehensive cloud experience to all enterprise systems and apps, making it easier to ensure data-driven decisions and drive better business outcomes in the future.

With this approach, companies can streamline the complete user experience across strategic workflows and maximize operational efficiency, regardless of where the data starts and ends up in the long run.
