Technical

All you need to use Caseworker Connect is a modern browser. We take care of all the hardware, hosting, security and backups. Under the terms of the Data Protection Act, we are Data Processors and adhere to a data processing agreement so you can be sure your data is in good hands.

For technical evaluators of Caseworker Connect:

  • Caseworker Connect Online is a modern, responsive, html5/css/js application available through the browser.
  • It is written against version 4.5 of the .NET framework using Visual Studio combining VB.NET, C# and third party UI toolkits.
  • Caseworker Connect is deployed to an application server (Windows/IIS and secured with a 2048bit SSL certificate).
  • Data is held on a dedicated database server running Microsoft SQL Server database (currently SQL Server Web Edition 2014).
  • Reports are delivered by email or direct download to the browser. For large deployments we can host reports on SQL Server Reporting Services.
  • An additional business processing server runs SQL Agent jobs to implement business workflows and processes.
  • Our primary servers are hosted in a Tier III data centre – in London – with Rackspace
  • We have a secondary centre in North Wales for disaster recovery
  • Passwords are hashed and salted and so cannot be recovered.
  • Automatic logout after a predetermined time of inactivity
  • Two factor authentication where users are required to enter characters from a memorable word in addition to a password.
  • Administrators can define complexity rules for passwords including length, number of non-alphanumeric characters, expiry period and banned password lists.
  • Administrators may also leverage features of IIS to restrict access by IP address, time or location.

For technical evaluators of Caseworker Connect Student Services Edition, the Student Services Edition has all the elements above, and additionally:

  • Authenticate against an LDAP server and control access rights based on membership of Active Directory security groups. This can be extended to support single sign on so an authenticated (Windows) user is able to access the system without presenting credentials at a log on screen.
  • CWC can integrate student data in two ways:
    1. Selected student data is copied from an existing database (such as SITS, Banner or other Registry source) into a read only table in Caseworker, via – for example – a nightly batch job.
    2. Manual data entry via a form in Caseworker. This solution is provided for institutions that do not have access to existing student data.

    It is possible to combine both methods: where only selected data is released from Registry in read-only form, this can be “topped up” with manual entry of other data, such as additional demographic data.

  • Barcode scanning of Student ID cards to retreive student data
