Enterprise software analyst Josh Greenbaum has a colourful way to describe Infor, the biggest application software company you’ve probably never heard of: “They are the Frankenstein’s laboratory for literally hundreds of products.”

More than 70 acquisitions have turned Infor into the world’s third biggest applications company – and left it with the mother of all integration challenges. Now, in Charles Phillips, former co-president of Oracle, it has secured the services of a CEO with big-time experience in handling this kind of situation.
