What do Sirsi and Rome have to do with one another? March 13, 2007Posted by Rachel in In The News, SirsiDynix.
A lot, apparently! SirsiDynix just announced a new, versatile technology platform called Rome that blends SirsiDynix Unicorn, Horizon/Corinthian, and other solutions to meet libraries needs. Here is a blurb from their press release:
Code-named “Rome,” this platform integrates solutions for library/consortia management, the user experience, and content management. It offers integrated technology building blocks for today’s libraries – public, academic, K-12, special, or consortia – beyond the traditional ILS, These include cost-saving software-as-a-service (SaaS) hosted options, state-of-the-art portal and search solutions, new and easy-to-manage Web-based library staff software, electronic content management and presentation solutions, the broadest suite of library management and productivity solutions… and more!
Thanks to David Lee King for also sharing more information on his blog about ths announcement.
From the description, this new “technology platform” sounds like to me like it’s a competitor to Primo, the search and discovery tool that ExLibris is developing. But as you know, we, Vanderbilt, are already a development partner with ExLibris in developing Primo. I wonder what Marshall Breeding’s thoughts are on this…
