April 21, 2016: Integration Announcement

Hello Campus Application Developers,
 

Here is the SIS Integrations team weekly summary of items of interest to our integration partners.

Go Live 5.2

Go Live 5.2 went into Production on Sunday 4/17 after a few delays due to campus network issues. This release includes enhancements to the Student API and Admissions API and introduces the Enrollment API. Additional details are included in the Release Notes section below.

SIS Project Tracking for Downstream Applications

To date, the SIS APIs and EDOs are being used by more than 70 applications across campus to access student and curriculum data. This is an exciting part of the SIS project and as part of our process we are keeping the IT management abreast of progress of each campus application integration and when they expect to go live. You have probably already received email requesting the status of your development work and completion dates.  The SIS project plan requires sign off for all applications that integrate SIS data and the functional managers may be contacted over the next several months.
