Meeting on the ledge

(or why I don't get out much…..)

Sierra

So III have announced that they are developing a new LMS?????? It is a pity that this was announced only at IUG so all their other customers worldwide get to hear the news second-hand…… To use David Nobbs’ phraseology:  a bit of a cock-up on the publicity front, Innovative.

  2. Exactly – there hasn’t been an announcement as of this morning. All I know is from second-hand discussion on the IUG mailing list (and they were very careful about what they said as they weren’t sure what was public information). There is to be a new LMS to be called Sierra using newer technology – but as for what this consists of or when they hope to release it I have no idea.

  3. Reply to my own comment! I’ve been contacted by a member of III staff who gave me more details but asked me to say no more until the official press release which is due imminently. I still don’t see why something can be announced in the US and overseas customers are left in the dark however….
