SirsiDynix makes Unicorn. SirsiDyinx also makes Horizon. SirsiDynix also makes Symphony, which you could call the new version of Unicorn or you could call it yet another ILS.
For some reason Unicorn customers are in the habit of referring to their software as “SirsiDynix”. I guess when just talking among themselves, this is fine if this is what they want to do.
But when you put this in comments in open source code I’m reading, it makes things REALLY confusing. Does “SirsiDynix” mean Unicorn or Horizon? I guess usually Unicorn. But it makes me have to stop and analyze whenever I see this in comments or variable names in code I’m working on, or in a post on a listserv I find via google or see via my subscription, or whatever.
We Horizon customers have a “SirsiDynix” product too! Fellow ILS hackers, if you remember this, and write “Unicorn” instead, it will make things a lot less confusing for me.
