CEnet Integration Services

From time to time we provide insights to the various teams within CEnet. This week it's the turn of the Integration Services Team.

The CEnet Integration Services Team is responsible for enabling services that make it as quick and easy as possible for staff and students to access the software and resources that they use in their day to day activities. The team's aim is to reduce complexity by delivering a sophisticated suite of services that are largely invisible to their users and to do this, support Identity Lifecycle Management, Access Management, Enterprise Interoperability Platform and Enterprise Data Access services.

CEnet’s Identity Lifecycle Management service is a SCIM-based identity integration and lifecycle management system for CEnet and its member dioceses including a unique and persistent identifier (CeId’er).

CEnet’s Access Management Service provides cloud-based single sign-on (SSO), Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) and Resource Access portal for all diocesan and CEnet applications.​

CEnet’s Enterprise Interoperability Platform delivers enterprise integration enabling application and data interoperability, API Management and data standards & quality management through Master Data Management (MDM).

CEnet’s Enterprise Data Access is a set of enduring data access interfaces and enterprise API's to deliver local access and consumption of data from enterprise systems.

The team members who support integration service are:
  • Jarryd Keir (Team Leader)
  • Joshua Kofod
  • Anita Burgess
  • Joshua Obst
  • Ryan Callinan
Fun fact: 4 out of 5 team members either came from a diocese or school!
