Lawson to offer ERP on AWS cloud

External Cloud Services to automate the provisioning or set up of additional software instances

By CBR Staff Writer

Lawson Software said that it will offer its core Enterprise Management Systems and Talent Management suite powered by the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) infrastructure, starting from May 2010. The products will be included in the External Cloud Services offering, which is part of the company’s new cloud services portfolio.

By using Amazon EC2, Lawson said that it will be able to provide the benefits of full-function enterprise software as well as security, reliability and computing capacity.

According to Lawson, External Cloud Services also features Lawson Test Drive, which allows customers to test real products for up to 14 days using their own business processes and data before committing to the actual software purchase. Test Drive is being launched with two new products, S3-directed Smart Office and Enterprise Search.

Lawson said that External Cloud Services can automate the provisioning or set up of additional software instances and allow customers to choose a level of customisation that meets their requirements.

In addition, it features three new product lines, S3 Enterprise Management System, M3 Enterprise Management System and Talent Management. Talent Management, focused on human resource organisations, offers actionable information about employees linked directly to business strategies.

Jeff Comport, senior vice president of product management at Lawson, said: “Lawson External Cloud Services can help make the customer’s total ERP experience simpler, faster and better. We are making it easier for our customers to license, use, keep current, and even pay for Lawson full-function enterprise software.”
