KANSAS CITY, Mo. and GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., April 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cerner (Nasdaq:CERN) and global IT consulting company Ciber (NYSE:CBR) announce a joint effort to deliver a full suite of Infor application management and hosting services for health care organizations. The two companies will offer best in breed solutions for Infor applications including application management, implementation, upgrades, and hosting services.

The alignment will provide additional value for clients of both companies by augmenting existing service offerings. Cerner's "Best in KLAS" 1 hosting services, combined with Ciber's expertise in managing, implementing and upgrading Infor applications, will allow clients to sustain the power and value of their investment in Infor software without needing to provide in-house resources to manage and support the applications.

"We're excited about this alignment and the opportunity that it will provide to create systems of efficiency for health care organizations," said Kent Scheuler, senior vice president, CernerWorks. "This alignment offers clients best in breed solutions for the full range of Infor services. "

"Infor is a leader in back-office ERP systems run by healthcare organizations, and Cerner is a leader in clinical systems," said Beth Dvoracek, Ciber's senior Infor practice director. "With Ciber's implementation expertise and managed services know-how, we believe this joint effort will enable us to deliver fast and solid value to healthcare organizations and the patients they serve."

Cerner chose to join with Ciber based on their more than 20 years of experience with Infor in the health care industry. Ciber's relationship with Infor dates back to 1995. As one of Infor's largest systems integration partners, Ciber's Infor experts have enhanced client systems capabilities through more than 2 million consulting hours.

Cerner has offered hosting services for more than 13 years and is known for unparalleled service levels, system management, and operational processes that drive high availability and performance for remote hosting clients. For the last four years, Cerner has been ranked as the top solution hosting provider in an annual survey of health care clients by KLAS, an independent survey group widely recognized in the health care industry.
