Ex-Oracle CFO heads for Infor?

Little birdies say that Jeff Epstein, who yesterday resigned as Oracle CFO, is heading to Infor.

You would probably know Infor if you’re in mid-market ERP and/or follow Charles Phillips, the former Oracle president who left Oracle last summer as Mark Hurd swept in. Phillips became CEO of–you guessed it–Infor!!

Infor is known for acquiring companies–mostly in the accounting and ERP software realms– and their products, thus buying into existing revenue streams. The Infor Wikipedia entry lists nearly 30 acquisitions–of Agilisys, GEAC, MAPICs etc.– in the past nine years.

UPDATE:  GGC Software Holdings, an Infor “affiliate,” is trying to buy Lawson Software, one of the few remaining independent ERP providers. Coincidence with this Epstein-goes-to-Infor talk? Hmmmm.

The ship has definitely sailed for BlackBerry in the device market. There's still a chance they can successfully reposition BES as a multi-platform EMM product, but that window is closing fast as well. Whatever turnaround Chen has planned will need to happen quickly.
