With our feet firmly back under the desk  we take a quick look back at what happened in January….

Infor Healthcare, a market leader in hospital management, (and utilised by 72 percent of US hospitals, with more than 150 beds), has been recognised by global research and consulting company, Frost & Sullivan with a best –in-class award for Market Leadership in IT.

In response to hospitals’ increasing focus on patient management and engagement, Infor recently acquired SalesLogix, now Infor CRM, extending its platform with population health management and customer relationship management capabilities. Infor’s CRM endows hospitals with access to numerous applications to aid patient relationship management and bolster patient engagement, treatment efficacy, and patient satisfaction.

Meanwhile, Infor EAM solutions has been acknowledged as Product of the year by readers of Plant Engineering in two categories:

Infor EAM Energy Performance Management won an  award in the Energy Management category and Infor CloudSuite Facilities Management picked up top honours in the Maintenance Software category.

Next month Infor is sponsoring a specially-commissioned report – Manufacturing, Britain’s Future – at the UK EEF Manufacturers’ Organisation annual conference which will look at how technology is a major driver of Industry 4.0 but what, exactly, is Industry 4.0 ??

If this new buzz-phrase has passed you by then don’t worry!  TechRadar’s Jamie Hinks explains: “Think about what the industrial revolution did for the Victorians and you get an idea of the type of wholesale change that is already taking hold of the industrial sector”.

In essence, Industry 4.0 is where Industry and the current Internet of Things (IoT) combine.  If you are still struggling to understand what this actually means, then read this excellent summary on 5 things you should know about Industry 4.0
