IFS Cloud is now available on a single platform that innately connects all its products to deliver the end-to-end capabilities a company needs to orchestrate its customers, people and assets and deliver amazing “moments of service”. Customers can choose to deploy best-of-breed or leverage the power of connecting their value chains across capabilities such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), human capital management (HCM), asset management (EAM) and field service management. (FSM).
IFS offers a unique and single technology platform with one common user experience, one data model and one consistent support offering. IFS Cloud brings simplicity, choice and innovation to organisations that need to evolve to new business models, control costs, expand faster and serve their customers better. By implementing IFS Cloud, companies can easily scale and simply switch on new functionality (such as additional modules or new innovative capabilities) when the time is right for their business.
Likewise, customers can choose how and where they deploy IFS Cloud, which has been engineered for the cloud but can be deployed on-premises with a choice of residency. Unlike many offerings, IFS customers will benefit from the same solution functionality and delightful user experiences, regardless of their deployment choice, without compromise.
As a departure from competing, legacy suites and software portfolios that rely on complex and costly integrations, IFS Cloud is designed to make it easier and more cost-effective for customers to buy, deploy, run and update their enterprise software. IFS Cloud marks the start of twice-yearly feature releases, giving customers the choice to move to the latest version as and when their businesses are ready.
“The path to digital transformation is not a simple one. Most businesses are complex and have intricate value chains, which is why few organisations succeed and even fewer vendors provide the tools to truly enable it”, said Darren Roos, IFS CEO. “At IFS, our single most important goal is to deliver value to our customers, and provide a clear path for them to evolve to new business models, compete and win”.
With digital innovations embedded, IFS Cloud’s architecture also includes new and improved application services for intelligent and autonomous business that can be natively leveraged across IFS products and across industries. This makes it practical and affordable for customers to take advantage of technologies such as machine learning (ML), augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR), artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT), ready to use ‘out of the box’.
Also released is the first instalment of IFS’s application lifecycle management capability, IFS Lifecycle Experience. This features a portal that puts users in control of their application by fusing multiple touch points, to give them access to information, tooling, code and permissions.
