MIS in EU/world
Does anybody know what MIS/SIS/SMS (whatever you wanna call them) are used in countries abroad?

There are loads that are used in New Zealand:
MUSAC Student Manager - use it and it is rubbish
Integris - heard that it is rubbish
eTap - heard good things apart from the amount of bandwidth that it uses
and these are just the accredited ones:

Cool, thats New Zealand. Anyone know about Aus/EU/Middle-east?

For Australia, what about RM? They get around

For the Middle-east there's: eduSwift, Administrator's Plus (the Rediker Software Student Management System) and Skoolee Tools, just to name a few. Apart from that there must be hundreds out there, just in the Northants area, I know of 4 different ones

Pretty sure you can get Capita Sims in the Middle-east/EU @vikpaw uses it

Middle East I know Capita have a small presence, as mentioned above @vikpaw is there (as well as one other with a larger presence that I am not allowed to mention)

yes, i think that's the Integris that @SYNACK mentioned that is purportedly not very good.

I even found an app, called TeacherPal the other day, that practically lets a teacher create their own mini MIS on an ipad. It wouldn't be all inclusive, but was pretty cool, though takes a lot of manual config to set up.

The iSAMS website has a list of the schools using it. Among them are:
Braeburn School, Nairobi
Braeburn Garden Estate, Nairobi
Braeside School, Nairobi
Braeburn Arusha, Tanzania
Canadian International School, Singapore
Prince of Wales Island International School, Malaysia
ACS (International) Singapore
to name a few. Have a look at their website iSAMS**|**Home if you want to see them all.

Most the development is done in Europe now isn't it? Shame most software companies are doing this, letting the UK economy down. Still suppose cost savings to public sector.

Yeap, I only know integris from second hand reports but from what I heard is needed a specific version of Windows 2000, yes 2000 with a specific patch level to function. I imagine it has progressed but I don't think that is has so far. The other options are MUSAC - a university introduction to programming course run amouck using Access and text file transactions ( yea I know I have had to deal with the problems of its implementation first hand ) or etap, web based and tied to 1997 linux ideals and site design.
Honestly I am suprised that we are not using traction engines in this country to generate power given the quality of the code we end up using for a SMS/MIS system.
Currently about two thirds of the country is enjoying the benifits of 1GB/s net while the rest of us languish on 1mb/s or so. To sum up South Auckland (the largeist city area by population in NZ) is Africa... No one cares about africa/south auckland.
