 Cambridge (MA) Schools were faced with a problem. They wanted to launch data interoperability across software systems, so they could 1) simplify and improve efficiency of data transfer, 2) ensure all data transfer was secure and met privacy requirements, 3) brought all data together to support decision-making and 4) leverage existing state data collection to reduce duplication of effort.
