Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Infor commits to 99.5% uptime for our cloud solutions subject to our supplier terms and service level description. Details of service credits for non-performance are set out in our supplier terms attached to this application.
Approach to resilience Infor application and database servers are installed across multiple AZ’s to provide the highest availability possible. If a data center or AZ partially or completely fails, the work load is automatically redistributed across the other AZ’s within the region by the AWS Elastic Load Balancers (ELB) and Auto Scaling services. Relational database servers employ synchronous or near-synchronous replication to duplicate data in multiple AZ’s to minimize or eliminate any transaction loss due to a system, data center, or AZ failure.
Outage reporting Automated Notifications.

Any services which has service degradation or service outage, an automated notification is sent out.

Identity and authentication

Identity and authentication
User authentication needed Yes
User authentication
  • Username or password
  • Other
Other user authentication Infor Talent Science utilizes a sophisticated access control system that ensures that only properly authorized internal and client users have access to specific data elements. Typically, certain client employees are set up to administer the Talent Science system. These users (Super Users) can assign access rights to other users for specific business units, departments, geographies, and other types of information. Reports in the system show the Super User exactly what other users can see and do inside of it. Infor provides Super Users with extensive training and support.
Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels The Talent Science system allows companies to define multiple “role profiles” within our system, establishing what options, reports, and data elements a user with that role profile can see and what actions that user can take within our system. System users can be assigned a role profile, inheriting the permissions and access rights of that profile.

Clients have full flexibility in defining what parts of our system a certain role profile can have access to, as well as what actions and reports that profile will be able to undertake and see.
Access restriction testing frequency At least once a year
Management access authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Dedicated link (for example VPN)
  • Username or password
