Automation marketplace 2004: migration down innovation up
[April 1, 2004]
Abstract: Public funding declined while returns on private endowments slipped--two major factors that limited the growth of the library automation industry in 2003. Libraries itching to migrate from legacy systems or acquire new automation products continue to defer. Despite the economic climate, or maybe owing to it, the top two companies, Innovative Interfaces and Dynix, strengthened their position as market leaders.
