he Data Hub prototype is a multifaceted yet easy-to-use interface between participating organizations (e.g. LEAs) and a collaborative host that manages Ed-Fi ODS's for members. The portal brings together automated Ed-Fi systems status with an ODS management request capability, access to registered applications, dashboards and services and participant contact information.
When a member organization logs in, the Data Hub displays any active alerts and provides a set of functional interactive "widgets": Ed-Fi status updates, Ed-Fi setup/maintenance requests, services & products selector and list of links to subscribed services (dashboards, 3rd party applications, etc.). The system has integrated email notifications for interactive features. Additional demonstration widgets include: a support-ticketing system, an ODS extract status list, and CRM-based contact list.
