Infor started it's current life under the name Agilisys. The company was spun out of Systems & Computer Technology (SCT), in June 2002. SCT, which was based in Malvern, Pennsylvania, focused on selling hardware and software solutions to a few unique, markets: educational institutions, Utilities, and Heavy Process Manufacturing companies, and had 1,300 customers. The remaining parts of SCT were subsequently acquired in February 2004 for $590 million in cash by Sungard, a $3 billion disaster recovery and application software provider based in Wayne, Pennsylvania.)
Since being spun out of SCT in June 2002, with backing from venture capitalists Golden Gate Partners and Summit Partners, Infor has been on an acquisitions binge to get larger and lock in more support revenue streams and customer bases. In 2004, when it was still called Agilisys, the company bought Infor Business Solutions, a midmarket German ERP provider, and took its name.
