The Innovative 4for14 Forums:
Four library technology themes for 2014
The 4for14 Forums are an opportunity to foster a better strategic understanding across the library community of key issues around migrating to the new generation of solutions.
Join Innovative in a discussion of four themes that are most important for libraries in 2014. For example, how important is the cloud? What benefits do libraries want to get from it? Is rich workflow functionality important to ensure operational continuity? How will adoption of next generation library services platforms impact the value libraries bring to their users?
As a worldwide leader in library automation technology and the developer of the Millennium ILS, the Sierra Library Service Platform, and the Encore Discovery Platform, we'll be offering an opportunity for you to join senior leadership from Innovative in an open forum to discuss theFour Themes facing libraries today.
The 4for14 Forums will be hosted by Innovative's Director, Library Futures, Joe Murphy, who will discuss directions for 2014. Participants will also hear from libraries who will share their experience of migrating to next generation systems. Each forum will include ample opportunity for discussion with Innovative senior managers on themes and the benefits of next generation technologies.
