IFS Cloud is a unique technology platform that delivers a unified user experience, a centralized data model and a consistent support offering. IFS Cloud brings together simplicity, choice and innovation for any organization seeking to drive new business models, control costs, expand faster and further meet the needs of their customers. With IFS Cloud, companies can easily scale solution capabilities, seamlessly adding new functionality such as additional modules or innovative technologies as they need them.
Customers have the flexibility to decide how and where they deploy IFS Cloud. The solution is designed for the cloud, but can also be deployed on-premise - with the freedom to choose the location. The solution always offers the same functionalities and the same pleasant user experience, regardless of whether it is operated in the cloud or on-premise.
Evergreen IT: Semi-annual update cycles.
IFS Cloud marks a departure from legacy suites and software portfolios that require complex and costly integrations. The solution makes it easier and more cost-effective to buy, implement, run and update enterprise software. It also marks the beginning of a biannual feature release series that gives customers the ability to upgrade to the latest solution version when their business processes are ready.
Innovative technologies "out of the box"
The IFS Cloud architecture also includes new, enhanced application services for intelligent, autonomous business models that are ready for use across all IFS products and industries. This makes it both realistic and affordable for customers to leverage technologies such as machine learning (ML), augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR), artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). Since these innovations are already embedded in the solution, they are ready to go.
