The Idaho State Department of Education (SDE) engaged Xtreme to develop and implement a statewide portal for collaborating, reporting, and distributing access to the Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS). The project’s vision was to provide education information and resources to all state and educational employees, district and school administrators, teachers, students, and parents, which required the creation of a complex identity management solution.
Making it happen
Xtreme worked in conjunction with SDE, the Idaho State Board of Education, and School District IT Directors to thoroughly envision and document the project requirements and technical standards. The project also required managing technical resources who worked for Xtreme, the SDE, the Idaho State Board of Education, multiple Idaho school districts, various contract companies, as well as external software and hardware vendors.
Xtreme led the requirements gathering and specification development process and was ultimately responsible for the completion of this two year development effort. The project was completed on time and has successfully transitioned to a support and enhancement phase.
