Fill the capability models survey till 31 January 2022!

EUNIS EA-SIG, the Enterprise Architecture group, is reaching out to ask your feedback about the use of Capability models. This very short survey will take only 2 min for you to answer.

We are interested to know whether you are aware of such models and/or use them in your organisation. The survey is available here. Please answer by end of January 2022.
Results will be used in the paper that we are preparing for the EUNIS 2022 Congress. If you are interested to know more about Capability models don’t hesitate to contact our group.

We also offer the possibility to deep dive into this subject through use-cases. We meet monthly and often discuss this topic. The upcoming meeting will be held on 28 January. Read more here on how to join the group.

Due to many requests, we have decided to give you an extra two weeks for filling the BM2020 benchmarking  survey, and can gladly announce that the new and final deadline will be 11 May. We hope this gives you enough time to collect all the data!

Your input is valuable and we hope that everyone finds interesting peers for their own comparisons and use. This is also the first time we try to collect data on how the pandemic influenced on the IT costs, thus we are looking forward to an interesting analysis!

EUNIS BencHEIT Task Force runs the annual survey on IT costs and volumes of Higher Education institutes. Its participation is voluntary and free of charge. The survey has been invented and is being developed and managed by CIOs within EUNIS community.

The BM-survey provides an overview of the institutions’ IT cost structure in three dimensions:

  • by organizational group: centralized IT, other centralized units (e.g. library, finance), faculties and research centers,
  • by services: e.g. networking, teaching, audio-visual,
  • by accounts

The BM2018 round of the BencHEIT survey has already been launched. Please, find material from the entry session here.

We are closing registration for this round of BencHEIT soon, so please register as soon as possible, at the latest by the end of March.
