Why not use the highest performing fully functional ZIS on the market? Did we mention it is free for districts?


Schools and districts use data that comes from many different applications and sources. The problem is that the data in these applications 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 using every day becomes stale and inaccurate. This leads to wasted time in the classroom for teachers, loads IT with tech support tickets, and frustrates administrator who are trying to analyze and report on the data.

CPSI helps districts to 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 assessment data to attendance and more—across the entire district in real time.

With CPSI, all of the school and district staff can be confident that the information on their computer or device always reflects the students and the true “picture” of the data in the district. Our solution provides everyone in the district – from teachers to superintendents – with the underlying foundation to provide up-to-date and “trustworthy” information to all of the applications they use.

xDZIS - Free Zone Integration Server - CPSI

In a SIF (School Interoperability Framework) implementation, you will need a Zone Integration Server. The ZIS acts as the brain of your implementation, routing messages to and from connecting applications. You need a ZIS that can handle the load of a real education data system. You need a ZIS that implements all of the specifications for a ZIS plus more. The xDZIS is the highest performing and feature packed ZIS on the market.

Since we know education needs a break now and then, we offer a fully featured license of our xDZIS for free to districts. Simply fill out a form and one of our amazing sales staff members will contact you to get you on the road to a successful SIF implementation.

Run any version of SIF for full application support.

Not every application vendor moves as quickly as SIF does. This means you need a ZIS than can support many different versions of SIF at the same time and still keep your district running smoothly. The xDZIS supports all versions of SIF 1.x and SIF 2.x and all of the data objects within each SIF specification, including SIF 2.7.

Translate between versions of SIF for standardization.

The xDZIS has unique ability to convert between versions of SIF. This means that if your district chooses to use the latest version of the SIF spec and not all of your applications support it, the xDZIS will translate up or down as needed to allow your district to function on the version of SIF you choose.

Security is important for your district.

We know that security is always a concern for districts. The xDZIS is built for high security environments and can be split into three parts to ensure that your data is never exposed outside of your DMZ. In addition to configuration security, the xDZIS has granular security settings for user accounts and the ability to filter data down to the element level on a per agent basis.

Never lose a message with fail-safe guaranteed delivery of all messages.

Lost messages can be a problem in a SIF implementation leading to data loss. With xDZIS there is never a worry about data loss due to missed or undelivered messages. All incoming and outgoing messages are stored in queue so that even if the power goes out, the xDZIS can always pick up exactly where it left off.

Learn More About the xDZIS

The xDZIS is a fully certified SIF Zone Integration Server that supports all versions of the SIF 1.x and 2.x framework. With an easy-to-use web interface and support for granular user security, the xDZIS is a powerful tool for district implementing SIF 2.x. The xDZIS is free for districts. (To sign up, click here).

The xDZIS supports multiple versions of the SIF framework running simultaneously. It also has the unique ability to convert versions of the SIF framework both up and down. Configure the xDZIS to meet the needs of any network security layout used by the district so sensitive data is not in danger of exposure.

Secure data down to the element level on a per-agent basis using custom filtering. Enforce SIF security requirements using an access control list that allows IT staff to define the data that a SIF agent is allowed to send or receive. Ensure that the data is only accessible to authorized SIF agents. Message tracking and logging allows districts to see full audit log reports.

In addition to support for SIF Specification Object, the xDZIS is also capable of handling Custom Data Objects. Custom Data objects allows districts to expand the data being collected when the data does not match up to the SIF Specifications.
