SirsiDynix and Horizon

Some very encouraging news from Ed Riding at SirsiDynix today. There’s a 2009 Horizon Product Plan in planning, and this will include incorporating some of the key international functionality in a new version of Horizon which will also support Sybase 15 and SQL Server 2005. This is a big step forward and seems to indicate that the company is now showing awareness that if they want Horizon customers to remain with them in the long term that they need to continue to support us on Horizon until we can afford (and have time) to migrate to Symphony. Suddenly I’m feeling much more positive about the company than I have for a long time!

  1. I fear it’s too little too late 😦

    We were ‘treated’ to a sneak review during the week and it would appear that a lot of Horizonesque functionality is being culled for Symphony 3.3…and the next version of Enterprise will be non SAAS.

    Still, they didn’t disappoint when the patron data from s41 txt to ASCII was deemed billable. Given that we already have the Bimport function, it’s a tad confusing why anyone would pay for functionality they already have in Horizon.

    I reckon they may actually reduced the costs to the point that they’re giving it away.
