Infor has become renowned worldwide for its groundbreaking business cloud software. The company is perhaps best known for its suites of industry-specific platforms that help organizations in specific verticals complete their digital transformations and navigate toward success.
As its list of innovative products grew in recent years, Infor set out to establish an event for its customers. Known as Inforum, this conference serves as an arena in which Infor clients can discover new ways to improve their businesses and connect with other like-minded professionals. Encompassing an audience of both Infor customers and technology thought leaders, the event also serves to teach attendees about maximizing their own Infor investments.
In 2019 Inforum will bring its attendees to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, September 23-26. Infor customers will have the opportunity to participate in a wide array of unique experiences while learning about Infor’s innovative products.
Here are seven things you can expect to do at Inforum 2019:
1. Expand your knowledge of Infor products
Inforum serves as a one-stop shop for Infor customers who are looking to connect with info and resources about the products that they use at their organizations. Throughout the event, you will have the chance to attend more than 750 educational sessions, each of which will focus on different Infor products and industry-related topics.
For example, Inforum’s Breakout Sessions will allow you to learn about the latest developments in Infor technology and how to harness all the capabilities of your existing platforms. You’ll also have the chance to engage in live demonstrations for certain products. Both industry leaders and Infor customers alike will facilitate these 45-minute sessions, covering a wide array of Infor topics.
Meanwhile, Academy Sessions will give you a more in-depth look at Infor solutions. Lasting just under two hours, these classes will bring together a small group of 24 participants for hands-on learning. Under the tutelage of an expert, you will learn new skills that you can apply to your use of Infor products.
For the first time, Inforum 2019 will also host Expert Insights panels. These will give you the opportunity to talk with Infor product experts and ask them your questions about the solutions that you employ at your own organization.
Inforum’s educational programming will feature an even more expansive list of sessions. Not only can you participate in brief Speed Sessions about Infor products and industry-related subject matter, but you will also be able to watch presentations from some of Infor’s most successful customers.
