As the backbone of Infor’s CloudSuite infrastructure, M3 APIs are crucial for any Infor M3 multi-tenant digital transformation project – allowing organizations to expand their SaaS ecosystem, utilize artificial intelligence, and provide immediate data access. Using the M3 APIs powered by the ION you’ll focus on building impactful applications, versus securing applications.
To become a digital leader, data is king. We work with many organizations who struggle to migrate data, define a governance strategy, and extract important siloed business information. Fortunately, with the utilization of M3 APIs and the data lake you can build new applications, utilize predictive analytics, and much more. For example calling APIs during a workflow can give your users the critical data in real time to make a decision. In the following paragraph, we will highlight the Infor M3 multi-tenant use cases we partner with clients like you on building.
Did you know that APIs play a role in everything from your mobile experience to artificial intelligence?

With ION API, you can register Infor and non-infor API endpoints. Infor endpoints include SWAGGER documentation, which powers the concept of an open API. The API gateway also provides a way to transform APIs from SOAP to REST, giving the developer an easier format.
