Created by Amplified IT, the Google Apps for Education (GAFE) Sync Tool provides an easy solution for syncing student data to Google Apps. The tool can be used to provision, update, and suspend accounts, as well as provide a custom solution to meet your school-specific needs.
What does the GAFE Sync Tool do?
The GAFE Sync Tool enables the provisioning of user accounts, passwords, groups, and other objects into your GAFE.
Data can be taken from any source and synchronized with your Google domain. This includes Student Information Systems, LDAP compatible Directory Services, and more.
Your sensitive information stays in your own environment so you are always in control.
With this fully customizable solution, we are able to work with any source and explore any ideas to meet your needs. Say so long to repetitive tasks!
What to expect during the process:
GAFE Sync projects begin with a scoping call in which we examine speciﬁcs about your environment and begin designing a custom implementation. We discuss usernames, passwords, Organizational Unit structure, groups, and much more.
GAFE Sync Configuration
An initial conﬁguration of the GAFE Sync Tool is completed, followed by thorough simulations to ensure GAFE Sync is making appropriate changes. These simulations will be reviewed by your team before we deploy any changes to your GAFE environment by beginning the syncing process.
Need speciﬁc information synced into your GAFE user accounts? We can work with you to customize our GAFE Sync Tool so that it becomes your GAFE Sync Tool.
Ongoing GAFE Sync Support
After the initial deployment, we are here to oﬀer you ongoing support and consultancy.
