The expanded partnership also makes Authentica's Centrifuge solutions and Analytics capabilities available to Blackboard customers. Centrifuge provides a centralized data store, combining all data elements into one data stream in the common CEDS format. Combined with DataSense, Centrifuge enables schools to better integrate data management elements and timelines, delivering the combined data in formats defined by the schools, such as analytical reports and state reporting.
Todd Schmid, Vice-President K-12 at Blackboard, said, "Authentica Solutions is providing a great service for Blackboard customers. All school districts have a need to share data between applications, and Authentica Solutions and their tool, DataSense, have provided a strong integration solution. We want our teachers and administrators focused on student learning, not worried about connecting data and applications."
About Authentica Solutions
Authentica Solutions was founded on the premise of evolving the data integration challenge found with K-12 districts, departments of education, Higher Education institutions, and K-12 corporations where it is no longer an issue but an asset. Removing data integration as a barrier enables the district and schools to focus on the core reason the applications were purchased which in most cases is advancing student achievement.
