Business applications provider, Infor, has partnered Thailand's Dhurakij Pundit University (DPU) through its Education Alliance Programme (EAP) to help students in the country develop their technological skillsets.
The EAP will commence in January 2017, with approximately 100 bachelor's degree students.
Under the programme, Infor will provide DPU free access to its technologies and learning platforms such as its CloudSuite solution hosted on Amazon Web Services. It will also offer access to industry Centres of Excellence, certification of Infor's software suites, and opportunities to Infor scholar internships. Students will also be able to participate in a Skills Marketplace, which aims to help them gain better employment and partnership opportunities in the technology industry.
In addition, students will use Infor SunSystems software, which includes Infor SunSystems Financials, and Infor BI Q&A. Infor SunSystems Financials is a solution which combines flexible transaction processing applications with real-time analysis and extensive reporting, while Infor BI Q&A is a cloud ready solution for data visualisation.
The Triforce Global Solutions Limited - a systems integrator and Infor Gold Certified Partner in Thailand - will also work closely with Infor and DPU under the Partners in Education (PiE) programme to provide advice, and guidance for the successful rollout of the EAP in DPU.
"Our partnership with Infor will help our students prepare for future employment. Likewise, businesses in Thailand will also benefit from Infor's initiatives in fostering a skilled workforce ready to face challenges in the 21st century, as Infor SunSystems is already widely used in more than 200 organisations across Thailand," said Dr. Pattanant Petchchedchoo, Dean of College of Innovative Business and Accountancy (CIBA) at DPU, in a press release.
