growth-focused initiatives. Finally, upgrades on cloud-de- ployed solutions are relatively painless—again, no hardware or training issues are involved—so manufacturers always have the latest version of the software. ME: Should manufacturers be con- cerned over data security with data on the cloud? Talerico: The short answer is no. In fact, security in the cloud with estab- lished vendors is often far better than what manufacturers would be able to build on their own. Many companies have an instinctive fear of allowing mission-critical data to be managed outside their four walls. That’s why Infor brought Amazon on as our de- ployment partner. Manufacturers’ core strengths do not include data manage- ment, and neither do ours at Infor. So we turned to an expert, arguably one of the best in the world.


Our CEO Charles Phillips likes to say ‘Friends don’t let friends run data cen- ters.’ That really does sum it up. Infor knows manufacturers need the highest level of security available, so we went to the industry leader to provide it. ME: What is the outlook for manu-


facturing? Talerico: Manufacturers will continue to move to cloud delivery of ERP solu- tions and extended enterprise solutions at a faster rate. According to a Gartner study, 47% of manufacturers plan to move mission-critical applications to the cloud over the next 4–5 years. When manufacturers look at business metrics and forecasts, they point to growth, growth, and more growth. So the biggest concerns in the industry are how to take advantage of new business opportuni- ties and maximize the profits from that growth. Efficiencies, cost savings and the smart use of technologies are the keys to meeting those challenges. ME
