Albuquerque, NM – Access Innovations, Inc., provider of Data Harmony software solutions, is proud to announce that registration is open for their sixth Data Harmony Users Group East (DHUGE) meeting on the East Coast, at the ASCE Bechtel Conference Center in Reston, Virginia. The meeting is open to current and prospective clients and is a venue to discuss the various and creative implementations of Data Harmony at organizations that span many industries.

“We’re excited to return to ASCE, where we had our first DHUG East meeting in 2016,” remarked Heather Kotula, VP of Marketing and Communications. “On the East Coast, we get a different audience than we do at our larger, annual meeting, held every February in Albuquerque, New Mexico.”

The agenda is comprised of case studies presented by current clients; an update on new features in the software; this year will include a group discussion on a hot topic in the industry, which organizers indicate will likely be about Large Language Models and their impact on the publishing industry; as well as a keynote presentation from Joann Fogleson, Director of Publishing Technology at ASCE, entitled “Now That You’ve Published, What Do You Do With Metadata?”

“Our clients are really the ones in charge of our product roadmap,” said Marjorie M. K. Hlava, President of Access Innovations. “We encourage our clients to share their ideas and challenges with us throughout the year, but at the DHUG meetings we see a bunch of creative minds come together and challenge us to do things we haven’t done before. It keeps us on our toes and on the bleeding edge of technology.”
