Dear Colleagues,

The participation numbers for the 2013 Campus Computing Survey are down this year --  by 20 percent. 

The value of the survey data really depend on the participation of CIOs and senior campus IT officials across all sectors of higher education.   I hope an extended deadline -- now Wednesday, October 9th -- will provide the extra time many institutions may need to complete the 2013 questionnaire.

Launched in 1990, annual Campus Computing Survey focuses on IT planning and policy issues.  At the risk of shameless self-promotion, Campus Computing consistently has been "ahead of the curve" on key IT issues of concern to campus IT leaders and to the broader campus community.  Some examples:
  -- 1999: the first national data on the IT priorities of CIOs.
  -- 2002: the first data on LMS deployments.
  -- 2003: the first data on "acceptable use" policies regarding P2P
  -- 2006: the first national data on IT security issues, including the percentage of institutions that had experienced IT security issues/incidents (by type) during the preceding year.
  -- 2008: the first data on emergency notification.
  -- 2008: the first data on campus compliance with the P2P provisions of the Higher Education Act.
  -- 2010: the first data on the campus migration of student email services to Google and Microsoft.
  -- 2010: the first data on the deployment of mobile applications.
  -- 2011: the first data documenting the slow movement to Cloud computing.
  -- 2012: the first data on ERP expenditures.
Additionally, the annual Campus Computing Survey has been a timely and reliable source of data about the ebb and flow of IT funding during economic downturns and also periods of economic recovery.

If you have started the 2013 survey, I hope you will complete it by Wednesday afternoon.  If you a new to your CIO position but your campus participated in 2012, the good news is that your 2013 questionnaire has been prepopulated with the data submitted in 2012.  And If you cannot find the emailed survey invitation in your email archive, please contact me and I will send another.

The results of the 2013 survey will be presented next week at the EDUCAUSE Conference on Thursday morning, October 17th @ 8:00  am (Ballroom D, Anaheim Convention Center).

My thanks to all who have participated in the survey in past years and especially to those of you who completed the 2013 questionnaire in recent weeks.

Sincerely,

Casey Green
Campus Computing

Colleagues We ALL have grown to depend on the Campus Computing Survey as well as the valuable discussion at the Educause Annual Conference, both of which depend on broad responses to this survey. We all use the output of the analysis of the survey responses in support of our decision making and education of our communities. This all depends on us making the effort to fill in our data into the survey. Time is short if we want to see the results at the end of next week. Let's support our profession by taking the time to input our data. Don Spicer
I second both Casey's plea for participation and Don's call to support the profession. The data input is not that difficult and goes relatively quickly if you are a past participant. Tom Thomas H.

I'd like to thank Casey for the number of times that he shared data to answer specific questions on this CIO list over the past year.  These answers are made possible by the community participation in surveys. 

Thanks so much for your participation!
