Districts and edtech vendors are looking for ways to exchange data seamlessly and adopt a scalable and cost-effective data architecture. Certica solves that challenge with the only integration platform fully based on Ed-Fi®.

Data Connect

Our Data Connect integration and interoperability platform is designed around the Ed-Fi data standard, ODS and API. This enables scalability and seamless data exchange, plus API integration with “one-and-done” efficiency.


What is Data Connect?

  • The only fully hosted and managed interoperability platform based on the Ed-Fi data standard
  • Makes vital connections between application providers and districts, to enable efficient data integration and application interoperability with minimal overhead
  • Provides the ability for student information systems, assessment systems and other applications, to provide scalable integration and a more comprehensive set of student, school and district data—without having to maintain expensive connectors for each data source
  • Includes both transactional and longitudinal data in the Ed-Fi ODS, for powerful analytics and reporting
