With its own resources and in cooperation with partners, IFS develops, sells, and implements component-based business software. To meet the market’s increased demands for solutions with broad functionality combined with in-depth industry knowledge, IFS focuses on a limited number of industry segments.

The Group’s product development is primarily conducted at IFS’s R&D centers in Sri Lanka and Sweden.

The company has developed a partner strategy, building on collaboration both locally in region and globally with its large multinational alliance partners. This allows IFS to enter new markets using local knowledge and resource whilst working within a consistent global partnering program.

IFS focuses on partners that offer complementary products or technologies within the product or the industry segment that IFS operates in. The aim is to provide customers with solutions that increase the value of their investment in IFS Applications. Two examples of such partners are Microsoft and Oracle. The collaboration with Microsoft centers on user interface, business intelligence, and cloud platforms while the Oracle cooperation is mainly aimed at databases and middleware.

The technology-partner ecosystem includes a range of regional and global providers. The introduction of a formal partner program in late 2013 that requires development of joint sales and marketing plans together with various partner activity commitments will strengthen IFS’s drive into key vertical markets and allow the company to further differentiate itself from the competition. IFS is also actively developing a network of partnerships with system integrators (SI) that assist organizations in identifying as well as implementing the IFS solution that addresses their unique needs.
