Annotation: The ability to make data available on demand through standards-based interfaces has transformed the way that organizations interact. The Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI) Protocol standard (ANSI/NISO Z39.93) has brought this transformational technology to the COUNTER reporting space, and throughout its development and adoption, Scholarly iQ has been on the forefront of the effort to take SUSHI mainstream. Being an early adopter is not without pain, however, and it is the responsibility of early trailblazers to lay guideposts along the way. This case study is a collection of these guideposts. Our objective is to identify some of the struggles, successes, and observations that we have seen along the path and to share those with the community.
