Optimizing your nonprofit mission impact with AWS Glue and Amazon Redshift ML
Nonprofit organizations focus on a specific mission to impact their members, communities, and the world. In the nonprofit space, where resources are limited, it’s important to optimize the impact of your efforts. Learn how you can apply machine learning with Amazon Redshift ML on public datasets to support data-driven decisions optimizing your impact. This walkthrough focuses on the use case for how to use open data to support food security programming, but this solution can be applied to many other initiatives in the nonprofit space.
Using machine learning to customize your nonprofit’s direct mailings
Many organizations perform direct mailings, designed to support fundraising or assist with other efforts to help further the organization’s mission. Direct mailing workflows can use everything from a Microsoft Word mail merge to utilizing a third-party mailing provider. By leveraging the power of the cloud, organizations can take advantage of capabilities that might otherwise be out of reach, like customized personalization at scale. In this walkthrough, learn how organizations can utilize machine learning (ML) personalization techniques with AWS to help drive better outcomes on their direct mailing efforts.
Creating satellite communications data analytics pipelines with AWS serverless technologies
Satellite communications (satcom) networks typically offer a rich set of performance metrics, such as signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and bandwidth delivered by remote terminals on land, sea, or air. Customers can use performance metrics to detect network and terminal anomalies and identify trends to impact business outcomes. This walkthrough presents an approach using serverless resources from AWS to build satcom control plane analytics pipelines. The presented architecture transforms the data to extract key performance indicators (KPIs) of interest, renders them in business intelligence tools, and applies machine learning (ML) to flag unexpected SNR deviations.
Automatically extracting email attachment data to reduce costs and save time for local public health departments
Local public health departments must notify public health agencies, like state health departments or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of reportable conditions. These departments receive various types of reports of healthcare conditions through email, in addition to more traditional methods such as mail, fax, or phone calls. Local health departments can dramatically reduce the time and costs associated with manually processing email attachments and improve processing efficiency using automation. In this blog post, learn how to create an automated email attachment ingestion, storage, and processing solution powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services from AWS.
Now available: New AWS program supporting nonprofit donor and member engagement
As one-time donations increasingly become the norm, nonprofit development teams are challenged to think outside-the-box to attract, retain, and communicate with their valuable supporters. Nonprofit organizations can use data to inform an enhanced engagement strategy, but many are challenged to unlock the full value of that data affordably and at scale. To help nonprofits use the cloud to build innovative fundraising and member engagement solutions, we are launching a new program – AWS TechAction.
How to build an Aadhaar Data Vault on AWS
An Aadhaar number is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to every individual in India. Considering the sensitivity of the Aadhaar number and the potential implication of having one’s Aadhaar number compromised, UIDAI mandated the need for all Aadhaar and Aadhaar-related data to be encrypted and stored separately in a secure, access-controlled data repository known as an Aadhaar Data Vault. This blog post explains how government and private entities that collect, process, and store Aadhaar data for various use cases can use AWS CloudHSM from AWS to create an Aadhaar data storage solution that can meet guidelines provided by UIDAI.

Building a resilient and scalable clinical genomics analysis pipeline with AWS
At the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center (BCM HGSC), we aim to advance precision medicine and research in genomics. In that effort, we joined the ambitious All of Us Research Program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help deliver genomic data to over one million individuals across the United States. In early 2019, we estimated that processing whole genome samples for this megaproject would imply a scale-up of over four times the production workload of our center. We used AWS to support our new pipeline demands, which saved time, reduced costs, and created new opportunities for future development.
