The company was founded in 2002 under the name Agilisys. In 2004, Agilisys acquired the German company Infor Business Solutions and changed its name to Infor Global Solutions. The company has a history of growing through acquisitions, particularly in the ERP and SCM arena; companies acquired include:
- Infor Business Solutions (2004)
- MAPICS (2005)
- Datastream (2006)
- GEAC ERP (2006)
- Systems Union (2006)
- SSA Global (2006)
- Lawson Software (2011)
- SalesLogix (2014)
- PeopleAnswers, Inc. (2014)
- GT Nexus (2015)
The last two acquisitions have brought products with cloud-based solutions into their portfolio.
One of the peculiarities of Infor is that rather than merge acquired products in the same marketplace, they have continued to develop each product. In recent years Infor have developed a product platform that integrates their different products and allows them to develop new functionality once and share it across all their product offerings.
