Virtually Speaking Podcast: Purdue University and VMware Greenplum

October 14, 2022

Purdue University and VMware Greenplum

The coronavirus pandemic was an unprecedented challenge for universities across the world. How could educational operations continue in-person without jeopardizing the health and well-being of students and faculty? Using data-forward thinking, Purdue University was able to develop methods for safe, in-person education shortly after lockdowns began in March 2020. The ability to remain open was achieved in large part through data-driven decision-making using VMware Greenplum.  

This week on the Virtually Speaking Podcast, Lead Data Scientist, Ian Pytlarz shares how he and his team developed this powerful organizational response, collecting a wide range of data sources and data types to ensure Purdue’s ongoing safety.
