San Francisco, Calif. May 8, 2018 BrightBytes, a research-based, end-to-end data solution that provides education organizations with comprehensive data management, from integration to analysis, today announced that their integration platform, DataSense, was named a 2018 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best Enterprise Application Integration Solution category. Finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

With ever growing access and availability to data, it can be challenging to effectively integrate, store, and manage data easily. The BrightBytes data integration platform, DataSense, provides education organizations with one central, online platform to unify all data. With DataSense, organizations can achieve data interoperability in days instead of months.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 91 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. DataSense was honored as one of 152 finalists across the 39 education technology categories.

“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2018 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs.” said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. “We know that education data is often disparate and very complex. We also know that if data isn’t integrated effectively, it can’t be leveraged to inform decisions. DataSense makes interoperability across hundreds of systems seamless and safe, so educators can easily access and provision powerful data to drive learning.”  said Traci Burgess, CEO of BrightBytes.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Celebration at the SIIA Annual Conference & CODiE Awards in San Francisco on June 13.
