Project SuperGlue is the integrations framework for products of the California Community Colleges and combines several technologies - application integration, service orchestration, api management, data integration, data quality coupled with federated master data management, and others. These technologies mostly leverage existing open source technology or cloud services from AWS except in two important areas - ERP/SIS integration supporting the three major Student Information Systems in use by colleges in the California Community College system and federated master data management. Both of these were either developed or co-developed by the software engineers at the California Community Colleges Technology Center (CCCTC) .
A comprehensive overview of Project SuperGlue is provided in An Introduction to Project SuperGlue (Aug. 2020)
Colleges interested in using the SuperGlue College Adapter to receive data or integrate their SIS with MyPath can contact their CCCTC Enabling Services College Relationship Manager (CRM) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SuperGlue’s Glue for Apply feature delivers student application data directly to the College’s SIS via the SuperGlue College Adapter. This includes the following CCCApply applications:
California Promise Application
Glue for Apply delivers the full dataset for each of these applications directly to colleges on average within seconds of the student submitting them. For a complete listing of the data delivered per application type, links to the CCCApply data dictionaries are below.
SuperGlue’s MDM component allows data tracking and data notifications to be generated when data is changed across integrated systems. MDM also includes a data management piece that, if enabled, allows institutions to control what integrated systems are granted access to specific data elements.
