    First I've heard of it but I'm certainly interested.
    @PhilNeal @David_Grashoff - can you share any details?

    Oh don't tease him @vikpaw

    It's hardly a secret if you spoke to any top brass from Capita at BETT. SIMS 8: It is in pilot in NI currently, browser based incarnation of SIMS. Kinda has to be if it is their new release! Don't get too excited it is a few years away yet! Assuming the pilot goes well!

    Oooooooo, where do I sign up to be a UK pilot tehehehe.

    Wonder how the reports module, exams, options (version 5 I do believe I still use) and Nova all work. Have to admit, kinda excited, I remember the big move to SIMS .net and the knock on effect that had.

    If it's web based then that maybe the end of TWF for our mac users and PE staff

    Firstly, I'm awaiting a SWAT team to swoop on me sent by @PhilNeal or @David_Grashoff but this is public knowledge... blimey it must be if the schools in NI are using it!

    I wouldn't hold breath either the roadmap says this is still 3 years away... think there is a lot of work still to do, even before a UK pilot.

    Finally, lets be fair it was due to come soon lest SIMS goes the way of Windows XP... fighting on but days are numbered!

    So might as well get the facts out there, as much as i know!

    Nova and Exams are well overdue an overhaul to bring them in to the 21st century - perhaps this might finally be their time? The rest AFAIK are already .NET based so theoretically shouldn't be any more difficult than core SIMS to port (not that I'm saying that won't be difficult!)

    The question is, will this be a complete move to online or just an improved online front end? I just hope it's not all based on Sharepoint

    Well look at the new systems like intouch agora ... Things are moving online and to a service model. So the ground work is there.

    I have to see it to believe it though.
    You'll probably end up with nova and exams on .net while the rest is cloud!
    @GREED I don't think this is supposed to be public though so expect the SWAT team any minute.

    There was enough public chat about it at BETT... I take that as public! I didn't sign an NDA so... :P
