Parry, M. (2009) Business Software, Built by Colleges for Colleges, Challenges Commercial Giants Chronicle of Higher Education, November 15

An article on the latest open source administrative software developed by the Kuali consortium. This is an important development, offering the potential for large savings on administrative software, but still likely to be used by less than 5% of post-secondary institutions in North America over the next five years, mainly because of the high cost in changing systems.

The software for the administration of research grants is the second system developed by Kuali – the first is a financial management system. A student information management system is the next product in line.
