Top 250 research universities spend $62B
USD on research conducted by faculty (NSF

performance management and collaboration.
Universities are looking for ways to replace
archaic, paper-based processes and provide
mature insight into the contributions by faculty.
Lyterati’s goal is to penetrate the global faculty
ERP market. This market is where the
finance, HR ERP market was 20 years ago.

teaching and service and where is it being
published and delivered? Who are they
collaborating most frequently with? Take
me to the collaborator’s data.
1. Take me to the Internet, i.e., go to the
article or op-ed or media appearance.
2. Let me explore the data by organizational
units and time and type of contribution.
1. Publish selected faculty data to the public
and replace static websites, leverage IP for
effective and timely technology transfer,
