Infor Cloud Migration Planning

Optimize and accelerate your cloud migration with Infor cloud services from Atos. The results include cost savings, increased agility, streamlined processing and improved performance.

As an Infor Alliance & CloudSuite Specialized Partner, we have more than 20 years of experience helping clients take full advantage of Infor software solutions. More organizations are cautiously — but increasingly — looking to the cloud to power digital, data-driven efficiencies. Our Infor-trained consultants are ready to help you target the advantages of a cloud-based solution and successfully navigate the migration process.

Atos partners with Infor to help its users optimize and accelerate the migration to the cloud. Our Cloud Migration Assessment can help you move an existing Lawson v10 solution or upgrade to v11 in the cloud.

Cloud Migration Planning


Atos recommends a planning session with our cloud migration experts to fully understand how this move will impact and benefit your organization.

Step 1: Assessment

  • Data preparation – Regardless of what version you’ll be on in the Infor Cloud, we’ll plan your data migration and archive/purge processes. For those upgrading to CloudSuite v11, Infor recommends only taking 3 years of data (or less) to V11. Our solutions are cost-effective and don’t require a data purge.
  • RICE review – We’ll work with you to review your R- reports, I- interfaces, C- customizations and E- enhancements. Our preliminary RICE report will show what changes need to be made for the migration and what to expect in the future state.
  • Process flow and toolkit (LPA/IPA) – Together with your team, we will carefully map existing process flows and determine the amount of effort needed to move to IPA.
  • Training plan – You’re in the cloud. Now what? Training ensures your team is prepared to take advantage of Infor’s CloudSuite solution. Training plans will vary based on your Infor Lawson version and the readiness of your team. We’ll help you develop the appropriate training plan, so you can hit the ground running.

Step 2: Refinement

Our team will work with you to develop and implement a refinement plan in preparation for the move to the cloud. Your refinement plan will include items such as:

  • Assuring that all Lawson users are in an AD group
  • Identifying and reviewing ODBC connections and FTP accounts
  • Discussing process to clean up users and security
  • Ensuring that AD FS Trust is in place
  • Documenting the assessment performed in step 1

Additional refinement activities include:

  • Reviewing Lawson user group(s).
  • Identifying and reviewing ODBC connections and FTP accounts
  • Recommending steps to clean up users and security
  • Reviewing and improving AD FS Trust
