Introduction

The process of building the Next Generation of Aeries involves the participation and collaboration of people throughout the company, throughout our customer-base, and throughout the education industry. As features of the current version of Aeries are evaluated for how best they will fit into the Next Generation of Aeries, "Advisory Committees" will be consulted in order to make the best decisions.
