Education Analytics Announces Commitment to Connected Data to Support Students and Teachers

On April 8, 2021, Education Analytics became the latest recipient of the Ed-Fi Managed ODS/API Platform Badge. This badge validates EA as a trusted partner for providing the Ed-Fi Operational Data Store and API (ODS/API) as a robust Software as a Service (SaaS) product offering.

Our Ed-Fi Services

One of the most costly and complex challenges that education stakeholders who work with data face today is how to bring together data from multiple sources in order to drive comprehensive, data-driven decision making at every level of the educational ecosystem.

StartingBlocks helps our partners tackle this very challenge. EA has implemented Ed-Fi technologies to help streamline data management in local and state education agencies across the U.S. As a result, schools and districts can more easily and cost-effectively integrate data typically siloed within disjointed platforms and disparate software programs into a unified, secure data standard.

Whether you come from a school district looking to implement Ed-Fi, a state education agency interested in learning more about Ed-Fi, or an educational stakeholder interested in data interoperability challenges and solutions, Education Analytics can help through our Ed-Fi services.
