Cloud computing could help break this paradigm as it is doing with ERP solution. ORACLE is no longer a single product suite but sits in The Cloud alongside interoperable applications from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). In summary the ERP suite is being deconstructed into what Gartner, an information technology market research and advisory firm, characterises as a ‘postmodern ERP.’ This will result will be more loosely coupled ERP environment with much of the functionality sourced as Cloud services or via business process outsourcers.

A more open library technology ecosystem, possibly making better use of open source components would eliminate the restrictions of a closed and monolithic suite of services from a single vendor. Solutions are moving to The Cloud but aren’t yet really platforms. It is possible that such a platform-based ecosystem model will be the “next generation” in library automation. The promise for libraries is a more flexible and cost effective solution and for users a much improved user experience.\\ \\ **[[http://​www.kenchadconsulting.com/​wp-content/​uploads/​2015/​11/​Rethinking_the-LSP_UKSGeNews_27Nov15.pdf|Rethinking the Library Services Platform (LSP]]**) By Ken Chad.

This issue of Library Technology Reports explores this new category of library software, including its functional and technical characteristics. It highlights the differences with integrated library systems, which remain viable for many libraries and continue to see development along their own trajectory. This report provides an up-to-date assessment of these products, including those that have well-established track records as well as those that remain under development. The relationship between library services platforms and discovery services is addressed. The report does not provide detailed listings of features of each product, but gives a general overview of the high-level organization of functionality,​ the adoption patterns relative to size, types, and numbers of libraries that have implemented them, and how these libraries perceive their performance. This seminal category of library technology products has gained momentum in recent years and is positioned to reshape how libraries acquire, manage, and provide access to their collections as they go forward into the next decade."​\\ \\  +While a new generation of library services platforms (LSPs) has emerged there remains a very significant lack of interoperability between the various components that make up the library technology ‘ecosystem’.
