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.
Getting data to move between applications automatically and keeping that data up-to-date is vital to the success of any educational data system. But moving the data is not enough all by itself. Gathering the data and storing it in one central location is essential for making the data truly powerful. To solve this problem, districts need an operational data store, or ODS.
xDStore Rosters is a great choice for districts in need of an ODS for some data but don’t have a need to collect every piece of data in their system. The xDStore Rosters ODS just collects the basics a district needs to manage roster data. In addition to storing the data, an automated SFTP tool is included so you can send the data you collect to any SFTP landing zone. CPSI also offers custom connectors, so you can export your data in any file format you need – automatically.
Automatically collect and store roster data to use in nearly any application.
In the process of automation, you need a place to collect and store the data in order to connect the dots to make the data truly usable. xDStore Rosters is an Operational Data Store that collects the data from the many different source systems used in a district. With data connected and stored in one place, getting that data into systems that cannot connect via SIF or other web services.
Connectors make it easy to get data into nearly any destination application.
In a district, roster data is used for many different needs within many different applications.
