Outsourcing University IS

The Information System of Masaryk University (IS MU) was officially launched into operation 1 March 1999, and has been developed, innovated, and improved ever since by the FI MU Computer Systems Unit team.

Initially, development targeted record keeping for study-related data and support for the credit system. It included applications intended to collect data on publications, CVs, and the course catalogue. Today, the system can do much more. It includes a broad spectrum of applications and functions, and has been kept up-to-date with the latest requirements.
