Top 10 Student Information System Providers - 2017

As the institutional priorities gravitate toward enhancing the quality of student experience, there has been an unprecedented increase in the adoption of technologies that drive student lifecycle management initiatives. One such highly sought-after technology is the Student Information System (SIS) that automates processes such as admissions, financial aid, student services, and registration along with measuring individual progress of the students, track student retention as well as manages all the day-to-day activities in an educational institution.

SIS serves as a centralized platform that allows the storage, management, and access to student and learning process data that is being generated in generous amounts. By turning into a data-source, SIS provides raw data to be analyzed, catering to the surge in the demand for interactive visualizations of data and application of algorithms. This in turn enables educational institutions with identifying and adjusting to the patterns of users, to gain insights that would drive student performance and help them achieve their institutional goals too.

The availability of a plethora of SIS products can be quite overwhelming for administrators scouting for the right solution for their educational institution.
