Corporate Information Systems surveys


CIS 2020 survey launched

Each year ucisa provides a survey of Corporate Information systems used across the sector. This is an invaluable resource made freely available to all ucisa members looking to share experiences with other institutions and understand trends in the marketplace. The results from Surveys from 2019 can be found here.

We decided to postpone the survey launch from last November until now, acknowledging the pressure faced by our sector over the last year. We are pleased to announce that the ucisa CIS survey for 2020 has now opened and is available at

It only takes just a few minutes to complete this survey. In 2019 almost 100 institutions completed the survey, which is a great response, however 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. Here’s what one member said: “We love the annual reports as they provide relevant information that really helps to paint a clear picture of where the industry is today and its challenges.”

The survey will be open until Friday 26th February 2021.

We aim to publish results of the survey in the summer.


Institutions that have completed the survey as of 10:30, 8th February 2021.
