Lawson Software announced that starting in May 2010 it will offer its core Lawson Enterprise Management Systems and Lawson Talent Management suite powered by the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) infrastructure. The products will be included in the Lawson External Cloud Services offering, which is part of the company's new Lawson Cloud Services portfolio.

Lawson External Cloud Services is ideal for midsize companies and organizations looking for a more affordable, flexible and agile deployment option for full-function enterprise software. By using Amazon EC2, Lawson can provide the benefits of full-function enterprise software faster than ever before. In addition, the security, reliability and massive computing capacity of Amazon EC2 can provide Lawson's customers with a world-class, yet highly affordable infrastructure.

Lawson External Cloud Services also features Lawson Test Drive, which begins to change the way Lawson demonstrates its products and how customers purchase ERP software. Lawson Test Drive allows Lawson customers to test real products for up to 14 days using their own business processes and data before committing to the actual software purchase. Lawson Test Drive increases enterprise customers' confidence that a demonstrated product will match the eventual installed product. Lawson Test Drive is being launched with two of Lawson's newest, most innovative products: Lawson S3-directed Lawson Smart Office and Lawson Enterprise Search.

“Lawson External Cloud Services can help make the customer's total ERP experience simpler, faster and better,” said Jeff Comport, Lawson senior vice president of product management. “We are making it easier for our customers to license, use, keep current, and even pay for Lawson full-function enterprise software. This should be great news for CFOs and CIOs who worry about lengthy and complex on-premise installations, the cost and inefficiency of their data centers, the best way to allocate IT staff, and the complexity and difficulty of maintaining software versions and upgrades.”

“Amazon Web Services is excited to be working with Lawson Software to provide a new class of applications to our joint customers, “ said Terry Wise, director of partner relations for Amazon Web Services (AWS). “By leveraging AWS' highly scalable computing infrastructure, organizations can requisition compute power, storage, and other application services in the cloud, paying for only what they use. Customers now have more choice and ways to leverage enterprise class software from Lawson on the AWS cloud.”
Lawson External Cloud Services can automate the provisioning or set up of additional software instances, meaning that organizations can configure their environment capacity to meet peak transactional demands or to increase system size to accommodate users brought on, for example, by an acquisition or merger. Customers can also request temporary instances to test a new system before going live or even prototype new business processes to determine potential business impact.
