Journey to Featureland
June is fast approaching… and so are the contours of a new continent we’ve dubbed “Featureland.” The official name is “OpenWater 3”.
“Yes,” you’re saying, “but OpenWater is amazing, just as it is!”
To which we say, “Aw, shucks. Well, there are a few things we’d like to improve…” (As you know, we value ongoing improvement.)
Our new UX team is working vigorously to review existing usability. They are making recommendations on ways to make OpenWater even more powerful and more intuitive to use.
We’re doing something few software companies do: making the entire platform backwards compatible.
- invisible performance enhancements
- minimal client-facing disruption
- no forced upgrades
We’ll make more announcements and sneak peeks as we get closer to rolling this out.
We’re dedicated to listening and learning from our clients. That’s one reason Rebecca calls each of our clients to gather feedback and discuss needs. We welcome your feature suggestions.
With this in mind we are working on an OpenWater Certification Program. Organizations can send one or more representative for certified training. For some, this will be an efficient way to reduce support hours and access an OpenWater expert in-house.
Details coming in a few weeks.
More Coming in June
June is already filling up. In addition to developing OpenWater 3 and the certification program we will be:
- Developing our 2018/2019 event series
- Opening up our OpenWater Scholarship and OpenWater Grant to applicants
- Finalizing our 2018/2019 conference topics
We encourage our American clients to enjoy this coming Memorial Day weekend…it’s going to be a blazing hot summer!
