Getting started with healthcare data lakes: A deeper dive on Amazon Cognito
In this blog post series on getting started building a data lake for healthcare with AWS, I focus on improving the security posture of our example build by incorporating the relatively new Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) feature of Amazon Cognito. This helps to both streamline and improve the granularity of access control for various user profiles connected to our data lake scenario.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, only 60 percent of college students receive a degree within six years. Universities—like Portland State University (PSU) and Oklahoma State University (OSU-OKC)—are using data lakes for analytics and machine learning to improve academic achievement by helping students reach their educational goals faster. Read on for how institutions use Amazon S3 for data lakes.
Using advanced analytics to accelerate problem solving in the public sector
Organizations across the globe are using advanced analytics and data science to predict and make decisions. They are finding ways to use their vast and diverse data stores to predict the best place to put their next retail store, what products to recommend to customers, how many employees they need for peak hours of operation, and how long a piece of machinery has until it needs maintenance. Public sector organizations in government, education, nonprofit, and healthcare are looking to use data to advance their missions too. Learn how.
OSU-OKC upskills its workforce and drives real-time decision making with live reporting and analytical modeling
Oklahoma State University in Oklahoma City (OSU-OKC), a two-year, technical-focused college, has historically faced challenges with consistent reporting, database management, and analytics. Technology generalists hired to do these tasks required extensive training to successfully extract data from traditional student information systems, manipulate data for state and federal compliance reporting, and generate limited campus reporting for operational or academic program review and analysis.
Virginia Tech’s experience building modern analytics on Amazon Web Services
Virginia Tech wanted to build a modern data warehouse to complete new requests and quickly answer difficult questions in order to make more informed decisions. To do this, we turned to AWS. We were looking for a way to build forecasting models faster so we could quickly react to changing conditions.
