What's Elevate Data Sync’s Story?

Elevate, (formally known as Kimono) was founded in 2012, as a cloud-based data integration for k12 and Higher Education. Besides offering SIS integrations, Elevate offers schools an integration between Canvas and the school’s SIS.

Instructure, the company that owns Canvas, acquired Elevate in November 2021. The goal of the acquisition is to help expand Instructure's interoperability with its schools and districts.

As part of the acquisition, Instructure rebranded Kimono to Elevate Data Sync. In a press release, Instructure didn't say whether they would offer Kimono’s services to districts that didn’t use Canvas.
