Frontline Education Launches Frontline Insights Platform and Frontline Central

First-of-Its-Kind Platform Unites Leading Administrative Software Solutions for Education with Actionable Data and Centralized System of Record for K-12 Organizations

MALVERN, Pa., Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Frontline Education continues to lead the industry with the launch of its first-of-a-kind Insights Platform and new employment data integration and analysis solution, Frontline Central. Both advances help further Frontline Education's commitment to bring the most comprehensive, integrated human capital management portfolio to more than 9,500 K-12 organizations across North America.

"Frontline Education continues to raise the bar in responding to the evolving needs of the education community," says Tim Clifford, CEO, Frontline Education. "We're driving industry innovation through both the Frontline Insights Platform and Frontline Central that will empower education leaders to use data and analytics like never before. The connectivity of technologies and processes in an intuitive and seamless way delivers the insights necessary to make informed decisions that have significant bearing on district outcomes."

The Frontline Insights Platform encompasses the entirety of Frontline's solutions and offerings including Recruiting & Hiring, Absence & Time, Professional Growth, Special Ed & Interventions and now Frontline Central. It provides a reliable customer experience and makes certain all solutions have FERPA compliant security, mobile access, data that is accessible externally via API, properly managed roles and identities for users, extended reporting options, district specific metrics, a common user interface and a consistent navigation experience.

Frontline Central, like all other Frontline solutions, is built on the Frontline Insights Platform. Frontline Central integrates a variety of employee data to create a centralized employee system of record. Importantly, this solution maintains the integrity of the data and features robust reporting capabilities. Frontline Central offers effective dating and digital record keeping, while allowing for cross-bundle reporting and dashboards as well as the comparison of individual districts against national benchmarks.

"We're excited to put Frontline Central in the hands of school superintendents and administrators to help them gain deeper insight across their employee data sets," Clifford says. "We fully expect this solution will yield a better understanding of employee populations, which can number in the thousands for larger districts, and, pave the way for more efficient short-term and long-term planning."

Frontline Education marked the launch of the Insights Platform and Frontline Central with an event focused on the opportunity to use technology and insights in K12 education. The event, held at the Boston Museum of Science, was attended by education administrators and practitioners, including Ted Mitchell, Under Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education, and Jim Peyser, Massachusetts Secretary of Education. As part of the gathering, Frontline Education announced its sponsorship of two scholarships for the Museum's Teacher-in-Residence program held every summer. The professional development program aims to help the Museum's science educators and school-based teachers deepen their understandings of STEM education and of each other's teaching contexts. Importantly, the program gives both groups important insights and takeaways on their own teaching and learning experiences.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
