An innovative data management solution for the Education sector, Wonde extracts data from within a school, stores it in the cloud and then provides third party applications access. Wonde ensures schools are able to manage access to their data, giving them greater visibility and control over what information is accessed by third parties. This ensures they’re compliant with their data protection obligations. Schools also now only need to maintain one external connection to their school data, rather than a connection to each software application they use.
