Infor has launched its new Developer Program and Developer Portal, designed to provide coders with the information and tools needed to build applications on top of Infor cloud ERP systems.

The Infor Developer Portal features baseline concepts and definitions, a centralized library of APIs and a set of specific tutorials to help developers assemble the components to build next-generation solutions.

The portal will also provide resources for two primary Infor application development solutions, Infor Mongoose and Infor OS App Designer. Infor Mongoose is a “rapid application development framework” that provides users with a no-code/low-code/full-code experience.

Mongoose maximizes a developer’s time by using various wizards to reduce the need to “drop into code” and by exploiting Infor’s flex layout, user components and HTML5 designer. Developers are able to create the UX/UI experience through Infor Mongoose.

Meanwhile, ​​part of the Infor OS Portal platform, Infor OS App Designer (OAD) is an application design tool. It is designed to be a server-less, multi-tenant, cloud-based development framework. Users can operate a no-code approach to develop widgets for the OS Portal, based on predefined templates that are ready to be connected to a data service.

Story Monforte, senior director of digital strategy of Infor, said: “We view the Infor Developer Program as an on-ramp for launching solutions on our Infor Marketplace. It is another key part of our growing partner ecosystem, which helps deliver a myriad of choices and innovation to our customers.”

Chris Griffith, CEO of StarPoint Technologies, said: “The Infor Developer Portal is another great example of how Infor is enabling partners like StarPoint to leverage the full capabilities and strengths of the Infor platform.

“As we continue to innovate with Infor, the detailed documentation, best practices and tools available to us through the Developer Portal will provide us with the key details needed to expand our AI and data insights solutions across an ever-increasing number of Infor CloudSuite ERPs and applications.”

Over 50 tutorials are offered in addition to Infor U courses and topical videos on Infor’s YouTube. Links to product documentation, developer forums and best-practice guides are all located within the portal.
