I am sure that you all now the news about the end-of-life of SirsiDynix's Horizon and the future release of ROME. Our library uses HORIZON for 10 years now and we were planning to upgrade in 7.3 this summer. After the Barcelona's Horizon's Users Group Meeting in May the migration path has been completely changed. Because our library runs a very old version of Horizon (5.3) we need to take a step forward.
The news about ROME did not find us very excited because the migration process is very painful and we are not very sure about how successful this will be.
Furthermore, we are thinking of migrating completely in a different vendor and this is Ex Libris with ALEPH 500.
Do you believe that this is a great step that does not worth it?
Has anyone of you any experience of both HORIZON and ALEPH?
