Abstract (Document Summary)

Although Kim Massana was an outsider to Innovative Interfaces (originally Innovative Interfaces Inc, aka III) when he started as CEO in August 2012, he was no stranger to libraries or enterprise systems. So when he came to Innovative he thought it was a nice combination of his days with libraries and also the software background he had at Elite, because in a way, the library systems that they're working with here are like ERP for libraries. Massana comes in at the end of an era for Innovative. The company, which was founded in 1978 by Jerry Kline, Steve Silberstein, and Lachmann Sippy, grew from a small operation in Kline's spare bedroom to a mainstay in the library automation industry for its library integration services. But the biggest announcement, set for release in 2014, is Sierra 2.0, which Massana says the company plans to debut at the ALA Midwinter meeting in Philadelphia in January 2014.
