Integration Solutions for Developers
Welcome to Kimono's developer program! Kimono connects with every SIS and enables schools to share roster, course, and grades data between applications. We are designing solutions for kindred developers who want to provide better integrations for their users. Explore our [Developer Guide](https://developer.kimonocloud.com/docs) to learn more.
A Comprehensive Solution
Kimono's APIs allows you to build a Kimono Integration that enables bi-directional sharing of data between your application and any student information system.
The SIF standard is a very broad data model that allows connected applications to share event-based data. Kimono participates on the A4L Board of Directors.
OneRoster is a data standard for securely sharing roster, course, enrollment, and grades data. Kimono is a member of the OneRoster Product Steering Committee.
Looking for Talented Developers
We're looking for motivated engineers to help us develop the next editions of the Kimono iPaaS, which current serves millions of students.

Cutting Integration Support Calls In Half
The team at Canvas reported having their most successful back-to-school ever this year after reducing the amount of support they allocated to solving student information system (SIS) integration issues. Find out how Kimono helped them achieve that, delighting both their team and their customers.
The Kimono Platform
Kimono works by continuously acquiring data from applications, then exchanging it over a publish & subscribe architecture that supports a growing number of industry-standard data models, infrastructures, and APIs. Our standards-agnostic platform utilizes the preferred data standard and integration method for each application. Share only the data elements you want with authorized applications. This improves data quality, greatly reduces the time required to manage data, and makes it possible to turn disparate data into actionable information that improves learning.
Mitch Benson, Vice President of Canvas Product & Strategy
Data and application integration is a complex problem, so we wanted a partner with deep education data expertise and a cloud-based platform that supports multiple standards and integration methods. This ensures that our customers will have a powerful solution that can grow with them.

By switching from our self hosted state ID system to Kimono's hosted state ID solution, we have saved time and money. We also use Kimono's G Suite Integration to keep our student accounts in Google up-to-date on a daily basis, which greatly reduces the amount of admin time the techs have to spend with Google Admin.

Using the Kimono integrations has enabled us to select software and apps for our districts and state that really meet the users' needs, without having to worry about whether the products will connect. We know the connections are reliable and our data is secure.
