On behalf of Enterprise Hive and The Tambellini Group I am excited to announce the official launch ofeduHiveMind.
eduHiveMind is the technology data commons for higher education.
This data as a service (DaaS) site is the only place on the Internet where you can get hard to find information to make strategic technology business decisions and easily connect with colleagues and peer institutions. eduHiveMind provides a number of services for higher education decision makers as well as companies and organizations that serve this market.
Find:
Over 100  downloadable reports that provides quality and verified information on the technologies and software applications on over 13,000 U.S. institutions.
A secure place where the institutions can rate their experience with vendor and  open source software products.
Insights as to how your institution compares to similar institutions with technology decisions.
A quick and private method to connect with others who share the same job roles in similar campus environments.
Check out a sample of the analysis the site provides based off of a  technology profile:
