Amos | Connect manages the data orchestration for both legacy and modern API integrations, whilst communicating to EBS via the Cloud compliant Datalink or Workflow components.
We provide a secure, scalable integration platform that is pre-configured for EBS and other commonly used applications in higher education.
A lack of integration between systems or existing legacy point to point integrations such as direct database connections can lead to a variety of challenges, including:
Some integration methods are not compatible with EBS in the cloud. The prospect of unpicking these existing integrations and modernising the EBS data transfer to use Datalinks or Workflow event based messaging, can feel overwhelming and prevent an institution from achieving their digital transformation goals.
Modernising your integrations can be the perfect opportunity to ensure data is properly validated and transformed before being delivered to its destination point(s). For instance, sending Unicode characters downstream to non-Unicode compliant applications generates errors and wastes precious time and resource.
The integrations you rely on may have been designed by teams (or an individual!) that have long since left your institution, or by companies that aren't specialised in integration. They are often brittle, poorly maintained and are an unsupportable blackbox in your institution.
Finding the right human resource or integration partner that understands the complexity of integration, the proprietary Workflow or Datalink APIs component of EBS and the nuances of higher education is almost impossible.
On-premise student systems with insecure integration mechanisms are persistently being targeted by ransomware cyber criminals, crippling several UK and Irish institutions and costing thousands to resolve. Furthermore, increased data compliance regulations such as the GDPR are putting a much greater onus on your institution to properly manage your data.
Student system vendors have enhanced their solutions to be more open through the delivery of API's and integration development kits. This requires in-depth proprietary technical expertise to make them usable and does not take responsibility for the full end-to-end delivery of data to numerous end points.
AMOS are higher education integration specialists. We support and manage the tech ourselves, relieving the in-house burden and ensuring the integrations are updated in line with new releases of EBS and other campus systems.
Guard against the FE data breach trend, stay compliant and mitigate unwanted negative publicity. Industry standard encryption and robust AWS cloud security methods keeps your data secure as it flows around campus.
Our Software as a Service subscription platform removes the need for capital investment in integration technology or the need to skill the internal team on developing complex technologies.
Your legacy systems are deeply embedded in your institution. We can work with and build upon your existing legacy systems, providing you with an agile solution that doesn't require complete change.
We've designed Amos | Connect specifically to solve major problems that have been affecting education administrations for decades.
Your needs evolve over time, so does Amos | Connect. You can scale up your solution based on your actual needs. There's no need to pay for features you aren't ready to use.
