There’s still time to participate in the 2016 EDUCAUSE Core Data Service (CDS). CDS provides benchmarks and core metrics you can use to compare your IT staffing, financials, and services data to peer and aspirant institutions.
With the shorter Quick Start module, it’s easier for first-time institutions to add the data required for service access. If your institution has previously participated in the survey, your data will be preloaded.
There is no cost to participate, and EDUCAUSE provides tips and reminders to help you find your way.
Ensure you have access to the benchmarking data you need to inform IT planning. Submit data by Nov. 4. Visit www.educause.edu/coredata to get started.
