Until now, data sharing in the education sector has been little available. At Vigilo we want to do something about this. Vigilo is therefore built on the principle of data sharing and the customer’s ownership of their own data.
Vigilo OAS is built on the principle of data sharing and the customer’s ownership of their own data. From the outset, we have used national and international standards for data sharing and deliberately chosen the formats we have considered to be most fit for the future. Vigilo uses APIs for all data exchange and was, for example, among the first in Europe to be certified according to the IMS OneRoster standard, for sharing of data in schools. We believe this is a natural part of a Student Information/Administration System, with the information it contains and exchanges with other systems.
Through Onedhub, we want to cultivate the data sharing functionality by providing an integration platform with core functionality for managing kindergartens and schools. The core functionality consists of administration of personal data in accordance with GDPR, enrollment/admission, rostering and billing/parental payment. Through the integration platform, it is possible to connect this functionality to other Vigilo modules or compatible third parties. Data is exchanged through standardized APIs and the IMS OneRoster format, in order to give as many third parties as possible access to the platform. For example, you can choose to connect to a schedule from Vigilo, a communication solution from another supplier and an LMS from a third. In this way, the customer can assemble a complete system optimally adapted to their own needs. We also see that there are a number of niche providers that develop excellent solutions but still has trouble entering the market alone. Through Onedhub, we want to make it easier, faster and more affordable to integrate new services with the customer’s other solutions.
Vigilo will certify third parties to ensure that all data transfers go seamlessly, securely and correctly. These services will then be presented in the Marketplace, along with Vigilo’s own products. The combination of an open and scalable integration platform and Vigilos Marketplace will give the customer far more flexibility than today. Instead of being bound by long contracts and costly implementation projects, modules can be easily added and replaced, always having the most up-to-date and best-tailored system for their needs.
