Session Description

Brandeis University has been using FileMaker for close to 15 years, during which both the university needs and FileMaker’s features have changed significantly. The process of maintaining existing records while updating to include new requirements from users and integrating new features available in FileMaker has been full of interesting pitfalls and great successes.
