Create a REST API for any data without writing code.
Schools and districts use data that comes from many different applications and sources. The problem is that the data must be re-entered many times into each application via manual data entry. Without some way to integrate the data, keep it up to date, and check it for accuracy, the data the teachers and staff uses every day becomes stale and inaccurate. This wastes time in the classroom for teachers, extra tech support tickets for IT, and frustrated administrators who are trying to analyze and report on the data.
CPSI helps districts overcome these difficult challenges. Our solution collects data from the many different applications in real time, checks the data for accuracy, and standardizes the data for reporting, BI and analysis. We help schools and districts finally leverage all kinds of data – from rosters to assessments to attendance and more—across the entire district.
With CPSI, all of the school and district staff can be confident that the information on their computer or device always reflects the true “picture” of the data in the district. Our solution provides everyone in the district – from students to teachers to superintendents – with the underlying foundation to provide up-to-date and “trustworthy” information in all of the applications they use.
With all of the talk of REST API’s and so many different solutions out there, you need a way to manage your data over a REST API. xDREST is a fully functional data layer that allows you to use the power of SQL and an easy to use management console to create and manage role based REST API functions without writing a line of code.
You make your own REST data layer and API.
Create your own REST API and data layer without ever writing a line of code. Using SQL Stored procedures and our management interface, you can create as many different API calls as you need to satisfy your goal of providing data securely to outside vendors.
You control the API security and who can access your API.
Each connecting application is given their own unique application key. Create unique functions for each connecting application, setup roles and security for each connecting application. You control what data each application has access to within your system. Define a list of sites and control which applications have access to each specific site in your district.

Learn More About the xDREST
In many educational data systems, data sits in database locations that do not have their own API to work with the data within the system. xDREST allows you to create a REST based API data layer on top of any existing SQL database to enable other systems, such as third party vendors, to securely access the data without exposing the databases to outside sources.
It is also very important that data layers secure the data being exposed so that outside systems only have access to the data they are allowed to view. xDREST manages applications using secure application keys unique to each connecting application as well as data filtering using custom variables and role based security.
In addition to the other features of xDREST, it ships with an easy to use management console that makes management a breeze. Create a data layer in minutes using SQL and the xDREST Management console. xDREST also comes with fully functional sample code to help vendors create clients in a hurry.
