    6. Avastone TechnologiesYou determine the floor! “30 Sec Elevator Speech” Ok, 10 to 15 min…

    7. Ground Floor • SQL Server • Many customers have it (whether they know it or not ) • Usually sprawling out of control • Looking for virtualization, consolidation, HA, DR • Foundation for many of customer’s critical applications • Avastone’s Offering • SQL Power Play • Best expertise in the Midwest (Tony Sebion) • Remote or on-site analysis • Train staff on tools used • Report of findings and recommendations • Low customer commitment (1-2 days) Heartland Confidential

    8. Second Floor • Most customers have data, not information… • Reports that run overnight, never finish • No visible KPIs for front-line managers • Spreadsheets running rampant • Multiple systems, how to correlate? • No system of truth / trusted numbers • BI Blitz • Leverage tools companies own (Microsoft Office, SQL Server) • BI solution in 4 weeks, not 1 year! • Hand-in-hand with your staff • Leave you trained with reporting and dashboards • Continue to build upon this iteratively Heartland Confidential

    9. Third Floor • Intranet / Extranet – SharePoint • 50% of all intranets built on SharePoint! • Community based collaboration • Excellent document management / workflow • Enterprise search • SharePoint Deployment Planning Services • Microsoft pays for SharePoint Assessment • Utilize EA or SA credits (1, 3, 5, 10, 15 days) Heartland Confidential

    10. Fourth Floor • Party floor! • It’s really all about relationships, isn’t it? • Microsoft Dynamics CRM • Not just for your customer relationships • Replace those Access databases • Application framework for LOB applications • Asset Management, Fleet Management, Student Management, Transitional Care Management, “Any” Management Heartland Confidential

    11. Fifth Floor • Time to play nice together! • Application Integration • Cloud & On Premise • Secure • Translations, Mapping, Scheduling • Management, Monitoring, Exceptions • Adapters Heartland Confidential

    12. Sixth Floor • Microsoft Dynamics GP • Multiple CPAs with many years of experience • Inventory control processes • Streamline / Automate (Sales, Purchasing) • Cash Management • Budget Control • Fund and Grant Management • Strong focus on education • Teacher Contracts (Avastone Solution) Heartland Confidential

    13. Seventh Floor • Web and Mobile • Customers thinking “Mobile First” • More web access via smartphones than PC’s • Kentico CMS – Easy to use, tons of features • Responsive Design, mobile optimized • Mobile apps for iOS, Android, or both!  Heartland Confidential

    14. Eighth Floor • Development Center • Custom built to customer’s specific needs • Leverage Microsoft .NET framework • Projects large and small • Take over customer’s application support • Avastone and Heartland – IT soup to nuts! Heartland Confidential

    16. Moodle / SIS Integration It’s a two way street Heartland Confidential

    17. Integration Challenges • Closed Systems – Many don’t really want integrations (all you need is ours!) • Standards – SIF tried but not strongly adopted, challenging to configure • Complex Environments – Multiple systems, multiple technologies, cloud, on premise • Tight Integrations – Database level can be brittle (most common) • Net Change Pattern – Supporting changes depends on source system capabilities • Management – Scheduling, exceptions, performance, upgrades

    18. Target StateBusiness and Technology Integration • Secure– Job 1! Must follow FERPA guidelines and keep Personally Identifiable Information (PII) secure • KISS – Must be simple and straight-forward to setup supporting cloud and on premise systems • Flexibility – Adapt to specific mappings or rules within district • Scalable – Support small to large implementations • Management – Alerts, notifications if / when problems do occur • Extendibility – Same model to integrate many systems • Abstraction – Separate interface from implementation • Reuse – Logic must be reusable across many districts reducing time to implement. Pre-built adapters to connect multiple systems

    19. Example Architecture • Leverage Middleware Framework • Scheduling, Mapping, Adapters • Monitoring & Exception Management • Reduce custom coding • Configurable templates • Must be easy to use • Build Adapters • Moodle (Courses, Gradebook, Enrollments, Groups, Roles) • Others (Library, GL/Finance, Professional Development, GAE) • Map to SIS environment • Advantages • Leverage middleware capabilities • Application hosting portability • Pre-built adapters with ability to extend • Enterprise model for integration

    20. Sample Integration Flow • LDAP • Identity Management • User Provisioning • SIS Integrations • SSO Users Groups Roles Users Groups Roles SIS Moodle Middleware On-Demand Integration Integration Status / History Courses Integration Dashboard Monitoring & Exception Management Courses Scheduling (Queue, Time, File, Query) Mapping / Translations Integration Configuration Enrollment Enrollment Assignments Assignments Gradebook Gradebook Pre-built Adapters Secure, encrypted traffic

    21. Moodle Integration • Many required Moodle web service apis already exist (subset below) • http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Web_services_Roadmap core_course_create_courses() – create courses core_course_delete_courses() – delete courses core_course_update_courses() – update courses core_enrol_get_enrolled_users() – get enrolled students in a course mod_assign_get_assignments – get course assignments mod_assign_get_grades() – get assignment grades core_enrol_get_enrolled_users() – get list of users enrolled in a course core_enrol_get_users_courses() – get list of courses a student is enrolled into enrol_manual_enrol_users() – manually enrol a student to a course

    22. Challenges • SIS Environments • Open up APIs for inbound integration • Net Change • Identifying records that have changed without comparing all (which is inefficient) • Conflicts (identifying master / rules) • Flexibility • Strong integration architecture with flexibility to change some rules by district Heartland Confidential

    23. Next Steps • Establish a group of districts to be part of the beta/pilot group (5) • This group would help influence the design • Continue to work with Skyward to gather requirements • Need to establish group by April 1st Heartland Confidential
