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.

Microservices Articles
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
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...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
