The solution to the organization’s challenges required a more continuous operational modernization than the erstwhile paradigm of 1 or 2 major releases per year. This approach helped them stay in phase with emerging market conditions and readily cater to evolving customer demands.
After partnering with Birlasoft, our client’s operations supported synergistic implementations of centralized and regionalized management practices based on varied business needs and demands across the globe, this further led them to transition their systems to the latest XA solution portfolio readily. Key components of the partnership follow:
A structured approach for deploying on-premises and cloud-based solutions
The team at Birlasoft worked closely with stakeholders and process owners in global businesses to analyze applications across all functional value streams. We broke down existing process monoliths and related business capabilities and mapped them to the latest range of products from Infor. Now, with a more precise roadmap for migrating value streams from existing legacy systems to the present Infor products, future migrations will be far easier to manage.
Architecture and accelerators
For our client, we developed an exhaustive, multi-tiered global architecture, post-analysis of multiple applications, and business capabilities. The idea behind our architectural approach was to make the succeeding platform more robust and to execute a standards-based publish-and-subscribe model. This proposition was in stark contrast to the erstwhile legacy point-to-point approach. Furthermore, we leveraged application accelerators that resulted in a significant reduction of the design and deployment window. This also ensured that the future releases were compliant and compatible.
Modeling the transformation of design, development, delivery, and support
Birlasoft's approach gradually harnessed the power of the cloud and merged it with on-premise deployments using various standards-based integration platforms. Presently, Infor's cloud-based products and services offer 60% off-the-shelf capabilities, 30% work-bench supported configurable capabilities, and to cater to special business requirements, 10% customization options.
