Ciber, Inc.6363 S. Fiddler's Green Circle, Suite 1400 Greenwood Village, CO  80111 www.Ciber.comGreenwood Village, Colo. - June 10, 2014 - Ciber(®) has reached an Infor Version 10x upgrade milestone, distinguishing itself among Infor Alliance partners. A global IT consulting company, Ciber has become the first Infor Alliance partner to sign upgrade contracts with 30 different organizations. More than one third of these organizations have already completed Infor 10x upgrades with Ciber's support. "Ciber is a leader in the Infor Partner Network and has demonstrated great commitment to helping Infor customers realize the full benefit of capabilities delivered in 10x applications," said Lynn Sauder, vice president, Global Alliances and Channels, Infor. "We anticipate that Ciber will continue to see great momentum behind upgrades to the latest technology from Infor." Infor 10X upgrades allow companies to benefit from the Infor ION(®) platform, an open, non-proprietary technology that facilitates fast integration with non- Infor systems as well as application upgrades that can occur without taking down the entire network. A 10x upgrade also provides access to Infor Ming.le(TM), Infor's social collaboration and communication tool that connects employees to their peers through any device. Additionally, the software delivers Infor Analytics, an embedded tool for pervasive business intelligence, and Infor Mongoose, an application development framework for easy design and deployment of custom applications. "Infor 10x can add rich capabilities to the enterprise," said Beth Dvoracek, vice president and head of Ciber's Infor practice. "We created our Ciber Impact Methodology to help our clients benefit as much as possible from the upgrade and achieve the largest return on investment from the features inherent in this powerful software." Along with implementing Infor 10x solutions on client premises, Ciber is helping several organizations gain the value of Infor 10x with reduced infrastructure investment through cloud-based delivery. As a cloud delivery partner, Ciber offers the benefit of advanced system monitoring as well as alerts that include heart-beat checks and system performance analysis. Ciber also can help clients manage the cost of their 10x upgrades by dispersing the expense over the life of multi-year managed services contracts. Ciber's relationship with Infor dates back to 1995.
