Also you should note that starting at R7 there is functionality in Power-Link IDF Level 2 that does not exist in Green Screen. XA is now 5 releases later and it is more true then ever. As Level 2 is developed, new functionality is added to XA that is not replicated in Green Screen. So while it is true that all of the existing Green Screen functions exist you should be aware that there have been dramatic changes and improvement in IDF Level 2. This becomes more true with every PCM update. And it is even more true at R9. Each R9 PCM will deliver an ever increasing amount of functionality in IDF Level 2.

So, if you are evaluating whether to upgrade to R9 worried about losing Green Screen, I'd recommend to anyone to change the focus and determine where the process improvements will come from. When you focus on improving the business then the question of whether to upgrade or not becomes moot because; yes we all want to improve the business.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] R9 Green screen and Release 10

To clarify - the entire green screen application still exists at release 9, and is still supported at Release 9. For release 10, the green screen application will be discontinued entirely. Release 10 will have some of the IDF Level 1 content remaining, which means there will still be some underlying RPG programs. However, there will be no RPG programs available for any object that is in the full Power-Link architecture (IDF Level 2).

Additionally, we have delayed Release 10 until 2012, and will deliver as much of the Power-Link application as possible at release 9. PCMs delivered in 2011 for release 9 will have additional Power-Link objects delivered with the PCM. Think of it as service packs for Release 9. This will give customers who FLEX Upgrade more time to make the transition to browser applications - and provide additional enhancements without requiring an upgrade.

Release 9 will see significant additional functionality added over the next 18 months, including Infor products like MyDay, ION, Performance Management, F9, Enterprise Asset Management, and (hopefully) Product Lifecycle Management. Additional partner products are also under consideration, to add to the three Solution Partner products added over the last 12 months.
