For the first time, individuals can find over 100 downloadable higher education technology research reports with verified information on the technologies and software applications selected by over 13,000 institutions. Enterprise Hive and The Tambellini Group have partnered to deliver eduHiveMind.
In addition to downloadable reports including software selections by institutions for SIS, Financials, HRMS and LMS solutions, individuals with valid higher education email work addresses may rate their experience with vendor and open-source software solutions. Providing real-time vendor ratings, eduHiveMind offers higher education technology decision-makers data from colleagues at peer institutions.
Higher education decision-makers will find insights regarding the technology decisions made by institutions of similar type and size. Enterprise Hive uses a proprietary methodology to allow individuals to connect with others who share the same job roles in similar campus environments.
"Taking the guesswork out of which peer institutions have selected technology similar to what I'm considering, will save higher education decision makers untold hours," according to Vicki Tambellini, CEO of The Tambellini Group and Enterprise Hive. Vendors will find the data commons a valuable resource when considering partnerships and new product investments. Financial managers and investors will also use eduHiveMind to research vendor market share and trends.
The data-as-a-service offering marks a major milestone for anyone that requires higher education technology market research. The need for a service like this has been discussed for years by higher education decision-makers, vendors and organizations supporting the industry. The problem is that the research is expensive to manage and the application to deliver the results did not exist. "We first started planning for this application in 2007. We are pleased to be first to offer the self-service solution for those that need information to make better decisions," says Tambellini.
