With Apple’s Claris, digital transformation goes to school


Just as digital transformation accelerated in the enterprise, the implementation and deployment of tech in the education sector has also accelerated, prompting Apple’s Claris subsidiary to introduce its own powerful student information system (SIS), which it calls Claris Connect for Apple School Manager.

Digital tools as learning goes remote

“Schools across the U.S. constantly face challenges around getting the most meaningful information out of the volumes of data gathered and processed each day—- which we are solving with Claris Connect for Apple School Manager,” Brad Freitag, CEO at Claris, said in a statement.

The product has been designed to help education establishments integrate SIS data with Apple School Manager, through which it can flow across additional tuition, support and learning systems. Claris Connect includes support for SIS systems from Aeries, Follet Aspen, and Skyward.

The idea behind this integration is that administrators, teachers, students, and parents can more easily access Apple’s education-focused services, apps, and technology. The system uses the OneRoster specification from the IMS Global Learning Consortium, a spec designed as a secure standard to use when sharing confidential school information such as rosters, courses, enrollments and grades between SIS systems and supporting solutions for learning.

It also makes it easy to automate the creation of Managed Apple IDs at scale, which is useful when new students join the school.

Enabling unique digital workflows

The idea is that SIS data can feed directly into other learning tools, applications, and digital content. This extends to building unique workflows that use popular platforms, including Excel, Twtiter, Box, MailChimp, Trello, Asana, Stripe and many more.

That’s as useful in education as it is to the enterprise and provides a good illustration of how digital tools can transform and automate essential business processes — from inventory management and visitor tracking to course scheduling and more.

For teachers, it should reduce the time spent ensuring pupils have the right information for the current lesson, as well as being able to check attendance and attainment at a glance.
