Infor EAM Works Best with Other Systems
In today’s business environment, you don’t have the time to update multiple systems with the same data. Running a series of stand-
By tying Infor EAM to your ERP, HCM, and production controls, you can simplify how data are moved from one place to another.
Infor EAM can receive data from nearly any relevant source, which means you don't have keep employee, cost center, supplier, and other base record sets up-
Your ERP and other applications can receive data from Infor EAM, making your business processes run more efficiently -
You'll find a hidden cost in entering the same records in more than one system -
Infor EAM is designed to integrate with other application. The system has native integration tables in the database, and a host of tools for moving information in and out of forms.
Consider connecting Infor EAM with your other business applications. Your systems will suddenly be consistent, and your reports showing better results.
You’ll also find your team much happier because information only has to be entered one time.
As a rule of thumb, Infor EAM will integrate with any package that has data relevant to Enterprise Asset Management, and that can present data to the EAM database.
The most common tools used to integrate software in your overall architecture include standard database scripting, XML documents, and even static spreadsheets.
We recommend using a dynamic, supported application with standard tools that will upgrade with your system. The Infor ION suite will give you the power you need to tie Infor EAM to nearly any package, and this is our tool of choice for integrating Infor software.
In one example, a company may keep spare parts records in Infor EAM and an ERP system. Suppliers records must be updated in both systems. Part orders are made in the ERP, and parts are received in both systems. Cost codes, units of purchase, and other base data become mismatched because no one group can keep up with both applications.
This problem is compounded when tracking meter and part count information for releasing PM work orders; making requests to the production scheduler for equipment downtime for PM work; or even keeping up with employee records between human resources and the maintenance team.

MP2 AND SYSTEM INTEGRATION
MP2 is available on an MS SQL database, which does give you flexibility for moving records in and out of the system. The bad news is that MP2 is not good for system integration.
The MP2 database will corrupt records, and potentially even table structures. Your technical team will have to develop system integration tables in MS SQL with extensive error handling. Worse, you are limited in how data are segmented in the database.
If you need to integrate your maintenance system with other packages, consider upgrading to Infor EAM. With the upgrade you get a full assortment of integration options, and a stable environment that won’t corrupt data.
SOFTWARE ALPHABET SOUP
If you work with Infor, or any major software company, you get lost in a sea of acronyms. Some common product names and types you may hear of include:
You’ll run into more acronyms as you search through the enterprise software websites, but these are the most common packages for manufacturing, facilities, healthcare, and other groups integrating with Infor EAM.
