Gartner Report: 2020 Strategic Roadmap for Higher Education Student Information Systems

Industry Insight

Is your student information system capable of keeping up with institutional objectives in 2020 and beyond?

Although many higher education institutions have a general desire to digitally transform to keep up with rapidly evolving student and operational expectations, many institutions have yet to modernize their student information systems (SIS). There are many reasons for the hesitation to digitalize student information systems, including internal culture issues and painful memories from previous transformation projects. Despite these reservations, however, it is vital that institutions transform their SIS, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted concerns about funding and online learning capabilities.

Download this Gartner report to learn more about the growing need to digitalize student information systems as well as what SIS solutions will look like in the future.

Per our understanding, this Gartner report highlights:

  • The key factors, such as integration and skills development, that must be incorporated into an SIS strategy
  • The principal inhibitors to enabling digital transformation and moving to a next-generation SIS
