Education Data Integration Firm Lingk Gets NobleStream Fist Bump

Education consultancy NobleStream has added a new education technology partner to the roster of companies it works with in deploying solutions for its clients. Start-up Lingk now joins eLumen, OpenStax and 11 other organizations in the ed tech space that NobleStream will recommend to its customer institutions facing specific operational challenges.

NobleStream helps colleges and universities undertake new approaches and software for institutional problems such as early intervention, student retention and student employability.

Lingk produces an application programming interface platform that works with the Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) model to perform data integration tasks and automate data feeds. It also provides consulting services to work alongside internal IT teams in setting up data feeds. An "express data feed" service, introduced in April, offers a bespoke version of the platform that includes ongoing enhancements to data feeds.

"Through this dynamic new partnership, we are now well-positioned to help our clients nationwide reap the rewards of Lingk's groundbreaking solution so they can liberate their ecosystems to innovate in the new API economy, leverage the power of data to tell their unique story and bring about transformative change to meet the needs of students," said NobleStream Managing Partner Howard Weiner in a prepared statement.
