How it works

Whether in the cloud or on prem, this platform integrates workflows, data, and applications at every stage of the student life cycle. It enables sharing of data across partner and institution systems and departments, while the patent-pending Ethos Data Model interprets that data into a standard formats and language. The information is stored in a data lake, and made accessible for reporting and insights.

The secure information can then be surfaced into various tools and formats, such as rich analytics, operational reporting, or through a mobile application – unlocking your data for better-informed decision making.  It can also be used to trigger and manage cross-system workflows, enabling greater collaboration across your institution.
