IUG 2015, the 23rd annual Innovative Users Group (IUG) Conference, has convened in Minneapolis, MN. Over 1,000 attendees, which include users of all the company’s major technology platforms (Sierra Library Services Platform, Polaris ILS, Virtua, and Vital), will participate in over 180 program sessions presented by their colleagues and Innovative staff. IUG members will discuss best practices for using Innovative's products, report on creative and unique implementations of technology, and contribute to the organization’s thought leadership and knowledge base. Innovative's presence includes 60 staff members from the Executive Team, Support and Services, Product Development, Product Management, Library Relations Management, Sales, and Marketing.

The opening session featured a panel discussion by several members of Innovative’s executive ranks. Moderated by Bill Schickling, SVP of Global Sales for Innovative, the panel included Jodi Bellinger, Vice President of Customer Support; Kim Massana, CEO; and Leif Pedersen, SVP of Product Management, R&D, and Marketing. IUG Chair Kristen Costello and Vice-Chair Eeva Stierwalt took the podium to provide an organization and conference overview. Innovative also announced the winners of the 2015 Crystal Awards.

The Open Library Experience & Open Library Stack
At IUG, Innovative also announced its vision for how libraries will meet the challenges ahead: the Open Library Experience (OLX). While the right technology is important and necessary, the overarching focus is on achieving successful experiences for users each time they interact with the library. Our vision is for every user to say: "My library experiences not only match my needs but exceed my expectations."

During the opening session, Pedersen announced the launch of the Open Library Stack, Innovative’s new multi-tenant, cloud-based infrastructure. Open, secure, and extensible, the OLS will accommodate new data sources and capabilities. Implemented to support on-demand delivery of mobile and Web-based applications including Innovative’s newly launched Mobile Worklists product, the OLS provides seamless user experiences across a variety of devices. The Open Library Stack is bringing the Open Library Experience into reality.
