Landmark is ideal for customers who want to integrate their various business functions into one system to help automate workflows and processes. Companies around the world use Landmark across almost every vertical, and it can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. 

If you’d like to learn more about the Landmark solution, as well as its benefits and unique features, read on. 

What is Infor Landmark?

The Infor Landmark technology platform provides integrated business models, workflows, and processes for any type of business—big or small. Based on Java, the technology offers a high-performing application development framework you can use to build business processes and deploy a runtime “write once, run anywhere” environment.

Since 2006 (when Landmark was released), customers have deployed many Landmark-based business solutions, including Infor Global Human Resources, Infor Talent Management, Infor CloudSuite HCM, Infor CloudSuite Financials, and Infor CloudSuite Supply Management.

Benefits of Infor Landmark 

Infor Landmark supports modern back-end functionality and processes that are robust and secure all in one solution. A few of its key benefits include: 

  • Automation: The Infor Process Automation (IPA) feature allows you to automate and customize manual tasks for Infor and non-Infor applications that span multiple systems. 
  • Personalization: Tailor and personalize configurations of Infor Landmark application fields, labels, and views with Infor Configuration Console. 
  • Simplification: Allow users to extract and update a large number of Landmark data records seamlessly in Excel spreadsheets with Infor Spreadsheet Designer.

Features of Landmark Technology Runtime Architecture 

The most critical capability of Landmark is its runtime architecture. This architecture allows you to configure applications and security without impacting upgrades. Here are some of the features of Landmark’s runtime architecture: 

Embedded Analytics

Most businesses today rely on data captured from business applications to make smart decisions. Landmark has a built-in analytics approach to getting that timely information. And if you require an even more granular approach, Landmark also integrates with Infor Analytics. 

Query and Reporting

Landmark’s query and reporting services allow you to access information using Report Anywhere, ensuring your application data can be securely viewed and reported. 

Security Authentication

Security authentication and authorization is available for all Landmark business apps, including Single Sign On (SSO) in a federated model with Lawson System Foundation using Infor Security Services. You can also perform role-based security authorization to protect access to data and sensitive reports.


Landmark offers real-time application and security configurations that allow you to personalize business apps. These configurations are stored separately from the base application so that they can be verified and applied on top of the new application during an upgrade. 

User Interfaces 

The Infor User Experience platform allows your users to get on-demand business insights and enable actions quickly. And just like your favorite technology, Infor is making applications intuitive, attractive, and fun to use, thanks to its Java framework.

The perfect environment for building business applications, Landmark’s architecture allows you to develop and deploy applications with the ability to configure them quickly and cost-effectively to meet your ever-changing needs.
