Advice for IFS Customers considering a journey to the cloud
In the interview, Östen answers questions involving, among other things, advice for IFS Customers considering a journey to the cloud.
The best advice often used by Novacure is to ask our customers to question their current and future state. In this way, they can use a new perspective to focus on what they want to be possible with a cloud platform. The importance of digital solutions becomes clear when realizing that most boundaries, that exist because of limited information access, are removed.
“By challenging the current view on a customer solution, process, or specific function, we can eliminate unnecessary modifications and increase the level of automation in the processes.” - says Östen Westman
He also states that the Novacura customers should be, in general, better prepared for IFS Cloud thanks to our low-code platform Novacura FLOW. This makes it's easier to avoid modification and complex configurations in the IFS software.
Why Novacura complies with IFS
Östen describes the values of Novacura and how those align with IFS:
"We believe in freedom for our customers related to allowing them to define their own processes, integrate with any system and enable them on any device whenever they need. And I think the “freedom to choose” is also an important element for IFS."
To summarize the interview, we're a proud partner to IFS and believe that Novacura and IFS can do great things and challenge customers to be better and not limit themselves.
