DigitalBridge Education Announcing Certification under SIF Data Standard 2.0r1

DigitalBridge Education Announcing Certification under SIF Data Standard 2.0r1

OREM, Utah, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalBridge today announced it is one of the first education software companies to successfully certify under Release 2.0r1 of the School Interoperability Framework (SIF) data standard. Ken Meyer, a former Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education and current Sr. Vice President of Governmental Affairs at DigitalBridge noted: "Data standards are important to any industry, but they are critical for the education industry if true interoperability is to be achieved. In K-12 Education, SIF is that standard."

DigitalBridge President and CEO Terry Pitts said: "The electronic transfer of student records and transcripts between schools or school districts in any state, or across states, requires a recognized technology standard. We are delighted to have been one of the first companies to certify under SIF standard 2.0r1 and look forward to further advancing the benefits of interoperability throughout the education marketplace."

Sharnell Jackson, Chief eLearning Officer of the Chicago Public Schools, agreed: "SIF-certified products are important to the Chicago Public Schools. With our districts using a variety of technology solutions, data interoperability and creative innovation are a necessity. SIF has emerged as the K-12 primary data standard. Chicago Public Schools applauds DigitalBridge in meeting SIF standard 2.0r1. This further solidifies DigitalBridge's value to the K-12 education community with respect to its Zone Integration Server and DigitalSAMS education product."

DigitalBridge's Zone Integration Server (ZIS) 2.0 is a specialized module of its DigitalFusion Platform(TM) - a universal platform for data interoperability and workflow that protects information as it is shared across organization boundaries. This JAVA-coded and XML-based platform consists of service-oriented architecture (SOA) deployed on an enterprise service bus (ESB). DigitalBridge's DigitalFusion Platform processes the Digital Information Packet(TM), an XML-based file structure that contains content (SIF Data Objects in full compliance with SIF's data schema), processing instructions, and security policy statements. The Digital Information Packet is implemented across organizations throughout digital ecosystems according to relevant governance structures built into the Digital Information Packet. The solution is flexible, scalable and deployable on nearly all hardware/operating system configurations so there is no need to rip and replace existing legacy systems.

The addition of ZIS 2.0 extends core functionality by creating a vehicle for horizontal (school to school and district to district) and vertical (district to state to federal) data interoperability that is fully SIF- certified. The Company's Digital Education Solutions convey protected information among multiple participants throughout education ecosystems regardless of differences in technology, geography, or jurisdictional boundaries. With DigitalBridge solutions the focus is on the individual student.

DigitalBridge is a leading innovator of protected information-sharing technology for digital ecosystems. The Company provides data, document and media interoperability solutions to the education, justice and healthcare markets using its patent-pending Digital Packet Technology(TM). DigitalBridge solutions succeed in education ecosystems because they integrate technology with information, process and policy - improving both control and information- sharing capability for individual education entities at the local, state, and federal levels while preserving the context, security and privacy of information in motion as it moves throughout the digital education ecosystem.

The School Interoperability Framework Association (SIFA) is a non-profit standards organization for the K-12 education community whose members have united behind a specification for interoperability which allows platform- independent sharing of data between various education software programs. The SIF Certification program is administered on behalf of SIFA by its designated Certification Authority, The Open Group.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
