Registration is now open for the 11th annual Data Harmony Users Group (DHUG) meeting, scheduled for February 16-20, 2015 at the Access Innovations, Inc. offices at 4725 Indian School Road Northeast, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Access Innovations, the developer and seller of the Data Harmony product line, is hosting the meeting. Several new features and options will be unveiled during the Annual Features Update report, including an introduction to the new graphical user interface (GUI).
A full day of training on building taxonomies is included on Monday, February 16, 2015. The Annual Features Update report will be presented by Access Innovations President Marjorie M.K. Hlava on Tuesday morning from 9:00 a.m. to noon. On Tuesday afternoon and on Wednesday, Data Harmony users will present case studies detailing their implementations of the software. Two full days of hands-on software training sessions led by Access Innovations and Data Harmony staff members are scheduled for Thursday, February 19, and Friday, February 20.
The meeting also includes a Monday evening networking reception and a networking dinner on Tuesday evening. The Tuesday evening dinner will be held at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, a museum and educational center dedicated to preserving and perpetuating Pueblo culture and to advancing understanding, by presenting, with dignity and respect, the accomplishments and evolving history of the Pueblo people of New Mexico.
By hosting the meeting at the Access Innovations home office, the entire staff will be able to participate in discussions. “Each year, this meeting provides our members an opportunity to share ideas and address issues and methodologies with colleagues,” said Ms. Hlava. “We enjoy talking with our clients and finding out what items are on their wish lists for future software developments, and the new releases reflect those requests.”
Also, members have the opportunity to discuss technical and tactical issues with Access Innovations staff in person. “Just by sitting down together, we can work through key issues quickly and to everyone’s benefit,” said Bob Kasenchak, Production Coordinator at Access Innovations. “Even little questions that come up during these discussions can get resolved – questions that don’t seem important enough to bring up during conference calls or in email correspondence.”
