Access Innovations, Inc., is pleased to announce that the agenda for the 2017 Data Harmony Users Group (DHUG) is posted and the meeting is open for registration. Held each February in Albuquerque, New Mexico, DHUG brings together current and prospective users of the Data Harmony software to present case studies, network, and share ideas. DHUG also includes a description of updates and new features in the software, which is rolled out shortly after the meeting.

Case studies presented by current clients are a favorite of participants at DHUG meetings. These presentations outline how Data Harmony is being implemented in the production pipeline at various clients’ sites, giving participants a chance to look behind the scenes and learn from other users.  At DHUG 2017, case study presenters will include Levi Birka, Senior Programmer Analyst at AAAS, Jane Hiebert-White, Executive Publisher of Health Affairs, and Chelsea Dinsmore, Director of Digital Production Services at the University of Florida Smathers Libraries.

Wednesday morning features a one-hour session presented by Dan Berger, Senior Manager of Production at the American Water Works Association (AWWA). AWWA was the first client to purchase and implement the Data Harmony software, and Dan will share some memorable moments from the evolution of the software and its use at AWWA.

DHUG registration is open to anyone who is using or is interested in using the Data Harmony software.  The meeting will take place on February 7 & 8, 2017, at the Hampton Inn University/Midtown in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For new or prospective clients, free software training is offered on Monday, February 6, 2017, at Access Innovations’ office.
