It Takes an Eco-System: A Review of the Research Administration Technology Landscape
Saas, Tyler; Kemp, James
Research Management Review, v22 n1 2017
Deloitte Consulting LLP conducted a review of publicly available data sources with the goal of identifying the pre- and post-award systems used in higher education. The number and type of pre- and post-award systems identified not only show that higher education institutions (HEIs) use a variety of methods to facilitate research activities, but also suggest that HEIs and ERP vendors may think differently about the role of research administration technologies. We provide some hypotheses for why this may be the case. These hypotheses focus on: institutional priorities, market maturity, and the "vision thing." We also provide high-level considerations to help HEIs think through their research administration technology decisions.
