Top 5 Vendors in the SIS Market for Higher Education from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global student information system (SIS) market for higher education report. This research report also lists seven other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Technavio’s market study analysts forecast the global SIS market for higher education to grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of nearly 13%.

The need to automate the management of day-to-day information related to students is driving educational institutions to implement SIS. Students use these systems for daily tasks such as registering for courses and classes, viewing their grades, and accessing transcripts. Faculty uses these systems to view their teaching schedules, submit final grades, and access academic information related to students. Administrators use SIS to automate various manual processes such as data entry. Educational institutions can enhance their strategic initiatives by using data drawn from built-in analytics of SIS.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global SIS market is expected to show moderate growth during the forecast period. A large number of higher educational institutions are adopting on premise as well as cloud-based SIS solutions to effectively manage their student records and meet their strategic goals. The market has become fragmented due to the entry of a large number of vendors with no clear leader in terms of market share. Vendors are capitalizing on growing trends of cloud computing, along with providing training, consultancy, and support to administrators at higher educational institutions for effective implementation of these systems in colleges and universities.

“Due to the rise in maintenance, personnel, and infrastructure costs, along with increased requirements in institutions to support non-traditional learning, many institutions are re-evaluating the various deployment models available to support institutional requirements with reduced budgets,” says Jhansi Mary, a lead education technology analyst from Technavio.

Institutions are investing in these systems to ensure that there is transparency in their procedures and essential documentation. The data collected is further fed into analytical tools, such as learning analytics and visual analytics software, to help administrators and faculty in their decision making.
