The CIS Survey 


UCISA Corporate Information Systems Survey 2017 - call for completion


The CIS Survey 2017 is now open for completion.  This is an invaluable resource made freely available to all UCISA FE and HE members looking to share experiences with other institutions and understand trends in the marketplace.  Surveys from previous years can be found here

It literally takes just a few minutes to complete this survey, particularly now that it remembers your answers from previous years.  Last year 74% of institutions completed the survey, which is a great response, but we are keen to improve on this. The more responses we get the more valuable the resulting data will be to all of our members.

The survey will remain open until the end of December

All being well, results will be published early in the new year.

Please email to check whether your institution has completed the Survey yet and to obtain the survey link.

CIS Survey 2016 results


The UCISA CIS survey has carried out annually and provides a simple snapshot of the core CIS in use by UCISA members.  The survey is open to all UCISA members and collects basic information about the main corporate information systems (CIS) in use in the HE sector. The results from 2016 are below.

There are two versions of the results spreadsheet:, a public-version, which does not contain contact details and additional comments and a full-version, which contains contact details and additional comments. Only available to the full UCISA members reps (sign-in to gain access to the full version)
Public version
  • CISG Survey 2016 Report. Public version. [Word]
  • CISG Trend 2016. Trends in Corporate Information Systems. Public version. [Word]
    It is important to note that a different number of institutions have responded in each year of the survey, and so the data are based on a varying sample of institutions in each year, therefore, any apparent trends should be treated with caution. It is also important to note that not all respondents answered each question of the survey, and so the totals included in the tables represent the overall number of respondents to each particular question.
  • CISG Public 2016 Results spreadsheet. Public version. [Excel]
  • Year on year. Public version. [Excel]

Full version (available to UCISA Full member reps via login only)
