IT Administration

Focus your data on your studentswoman_laptop_smirk

If you feel like you’re already overwhelmed with student data, you are not alone. Your institution has information in databases, spreadsheets, emails, and file cabinets – unfortunately it is not always secure, not easily accessible, and not student-centered.

At Starfish, we know that moving the needle on student success and completion is never easy…but without you, it might be impossible. “Big data” is a big buzzword, but when combined with thoughtful people, intelligent design, and simple tools, the data on your campus can help you make a difference.

Connecting to what you already have

The Starfish platform is designed as a low- to no-pain solution for IT that protects your data and your user’s privacy. Provided in an on-demand, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) format, the platform is hosted, managed, secured, and maintained by Starfish at our SSAE16-audited Equinix IBX data centers. And since the platform plugs in to your existing learning management system and student information system, installation (including single sign-on) can be completed within hours.

Managed Innovation

Your functional users will appreciate the way that the Starfish platform offers ongoing improvements and innovations. We expand the functionality of our platform continually to meet the evolving needs of our client community, with clients automatically receiving the latest updates and feature releases at no additional costs and with no effort required from your team.

You have a lot to do to keep your institution’s systems up and running. Starfish is here as your trusted partner. Some other benefits that you will experience with the Starfish platform are:

  • Keep doing what you’re doing. Leverage your expertise with your existing campus technologies and plug in a new suite of functionality without provisioning or maintaining new hardware.
  • Rely on state-of-the-art data centers to protect your data and ensure 24/7 system availability.
  • Control your own information in accordance with your institution’s data security policies and privacy guidelines.
  • Enjoy frequent improvements and innovations with no system downtime.
