Human Potential

The convergence of digital technologies like cloud computing, analytics, networked supply chains, and artificial intelligence was on full display at Inforum, where the theme of human potential explored the impact of these technologies on people and productivity.

Attendees learned how Infor CloudSuite, which integrates Human Capital Management and mission-critical ERP by industry, is uniquely able to help customers empower and engage employees to work smarter, easier, to be their best, most-productive selves. Infor also welcomed well-known thought leaders and special guests like Venus Williams, Van Jones, and Jared Diamond to discuss what ‘Human Potential’ means to them.

Announcing new milestones

Infor announced the general availability of the Infor Coleman Digital Assistant, bringing artificial intelligence to the workplace, and a conversational user experience to Infor OS and the Infor CloudSuite product line. The Coleman Digital Assistant, which automates many mundane tasks, such as data collection, embodies the Inforum theme by enabling users to focus on more valuable work – using artificial intelligence to help maximize human work potential.

Infor is innovating on top of the Infor GT Nexus commerce network, unveiling the Infor Control Center, a next-generation supply chain visibility and intelligence solution that enables supply chains to be data-driven, self-learning, and consistently reliable. Control Center combines the data from the Commerce Network with Coleman AI capabilities to empower supply chain leaders to predict future supply chain issues and react earlier and faster.
