Interoperability

Introducing the Systems Interoperability Framework (SIF)

The Systems Interoperability Framework (SIF) is an international open standard that enables near real-time sharing of information between resources.

Because SIF is an open standard, any services using it can share information without the need for any bespoke integration.

The benefits are many…

  • Information about me is kept safe;
  • I’m more likely to access the valuable resources available to me;
  • The resources I use can be personalised;
  • Pluggable – all my systems, applications and resources work together;
  • Time is saved with information added once and reused many times;
  • Errors are reduced – information is reused many times and any changes are made only once then shared as relevant;
  • Near-time information sharing – I can update information once and it is shared in near-time with all of the relevant subscribing services;
  • Information sharing is controlled and secure;
  • Éducation sans Frontières!
