Interoperability for Higher Ed
Kimono is a premium, enterprise-class integration solution that keeps course data and rosters synchronized between your SIS and other applications. Our integration platform as a service (iPaaS) utilizes the preferred education data standard and integration method for each application and improves the accuracy, accessibility, and privacy of student information.
A Comprehensive Solution
LIS is a data standard published by IMS Global for securely sharing roster, course, and enrollment information, and includes a profile for Higher Education.
Kimono enables you to utilize custom CSV imports and exports – so you can have automatic rostering for those apps that have not adopted a data standard.
ILP synchronizes users, courses, enrollments, grades, and more, allowing institutions to manage the flow of data between administrative apps and the LMS.
The Kimono solution is the only comprehensive, real-time integration for Canvas. Not only does the Kimono integration connect Canvas to the district’s student information system (SIS) to enable real-time roster synchronization with grade pass back, it also supports the district’s optional elements, mappings, and customizations. This includes per-building configuration, course names per school, automated cross-listing of courses and sections, term management, and pre-term drops. No other solution supports a broad enough data model to enable these features.
Management of network accounts is easy with Kimono Directories. Automatically provision, move, and inactivate staff and student accounts. Flexible directory structures allow custom organization of your users and groups, even allowing different structures for Google and Active Directory.

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.
