- Kimono provides EdTech companies with SIS integrations. They also provide schools an integration between their SIS and Canvas (if that's the LMS the school uses).

- Kimono is being rebranded as Elevate Data Sync.
What's Kimono's Story?
Kimono was founded in 2012, as a cloud-based data integration for K-12 and Higher Education. They offer EdTech companies integrations with SISs. Additionally, they offer schools an integration between the Canvas LMS and their SIS.
As part of the acquisition, Instructure is rebranding Kimono to Elevate Data Sync. In their press release, Instructure didn't say whether they would offer Kimono’s services to districts that didn’t use Canvas.
