Infor, which makes large-scale cloud ERP software, has been around since 2002 and counts Koch as both a customer and an investor, so the deal makes sense on that level. Koch was lead investor last year in a $1.5 billion investment, wherein the company indicated that it was a step before going public.
Many companies tend to make business decisions based on the limitations of their legacy mindset or technology rather than customer needs. This legacy mentality is perhaps more of an obstacle than the legacy systems themselves. To compete, organizations need to rethink their infrastructure approach, including strategic partners and deployments, to create a more agile infrastructure that can support new revenue models.
The bank did a publicity campaign around it, reminding people to check how much they are spending on subscriptions and offering a way to help them monitor recurring payments of all sorts. It also offers more controls over sharing data with third parties such as Intuit or Plaid. Customers will have account level control on which data is shared, and if they don’t want to share their data any longer, they can turn off the permission to a specific third party.
Boeing will go through a similar process for the roughly 400 jets built during the grounding that are now in storage. The backlog of completed jets contributed to Boeing’s decision to temporarily shut the 737 factory last month.

Most industrial companies struggle to quickly and effectively deploy technology solutions for their customers and internal business functions. All too often, new technology-enabled initiatives—such as aftermarket solutions to create new revenue streams, Internet of Things (IoT) platforms to improve the efficiency of manufacturing processes, or analytics use cases that could transform core operations—fall short of expectations. One key reason is that a company’s tech backbone is outdated, inflexible, or insufficiently resilient to support the requirements of next-generation technologies.
Business and technology executives are increasingly fascinated and obsessed with technologies that are designed to automate and drive faster speed to market. Many, however, are finding that this alone is rarely a cure-all.
