This Week in Review – Jan. 29th to Feb. 4th
ERP / SIS Implementations Times in Higher Education
As you all know, we at LISTedTECH collect information on who uses what system in the higher education market. We also collect information on dates and we have recently started to capture information on the implementation partners who help higher education institutions (more on this next week). Some of the dates we try to collect are the purchase and the implementation dates. Using these data points, we can calculate implementation times.
Based on 289 implementations, a typical implication of a new (not an upgrade) system takes about 26 months.
