With Student Information Systems (SIS) selections on an upward trend, institutions are selecting vended solutions from top vendors and relative new-comers according to a new, vendor independent SIS market research report.

Irvington, VA- A new independent research report just released by The Tambellini Group (TTG) whose mission is to help institutions make better decisions based on data, clearly shows that in 2014 more institutions selected a new SIS than in recent years. Institutions are considering the cost of maintaining legacy systems, upgrading to the next version of existing vendor solutions and replacing legacy systems with new vendor offerings.

In 2014 a significant number of Campus Management Customers selected Campus Nexus over the alternatives. The report reviews the number, size and type of institutions selecting Campus Management. In depth reviews of vendor selections by institution size and type are provided to reveal trends by vendor.

“The research covered in the 2015 TTG SIS report shows that cloud solutions are changing the competitive landscape of education technology decisions including student information systems” said Vicki Tambellini, CEO of The Tambellini Group and co-author of the report. “With the continued pressure of tight budgets and focus on affordability, there is a growing interest among institutions in the United States in replacing or upgrading legacy Student Information Systems with modern technology.”

In addition to data related to higher education SIS selections segmented by institution type, this report includes in-depth coverage of the top higher education SIS vendors including identifying vendor trends, strengths and product roadmaps. The top vendors covered include: Campus Management Corporation, Ellucian, Jenzabar, Oracle, RJM SONISWEB and Three Rivers Systems.
