For North American data managers there is currently no greater
“push and pull” on educational data
The new SIF 3.0 infrastructure allows you to future-proof your institution
and manage YOUR data
Simple. Secure. Standard.
Connect applications in minutes or
‘scale up’ to an enterprise solution…
Rather than vendors creating a separate connection to every application,
the SIF Association has defined the set of rules and definitions to share data.
Simple. Enable two applications to securely share educational data in minutes reducing data entry time for school, district and government staff.
Secure. Ensure that access to critical learning data is restricted solely to applications specifically authorized by the local 'data steward', whether the data is held locally, in the cloud, or in partnership with third party providers thereby reducing the risk to the organization
Standard. An established, community built, free and open data blueprint that is used by hundreds of applications regardless of platform or vendor provider, protecting SEA and LEA investments, that has repeatedly proven itself over the last 17 years and is here to stay!
Why choose SIF? Interoperability will save your customers money and time - build one connector and use it many times...
Simple. Data is a URL - only takes minutes for a client application to get connected!
