A Secure Data Platform for Wharton Researchers.

Big Data, Amazon Web Services, Ruby on Rails

Wharton Customer Analytics (WCAI) works with multinational corporations on various data analytics projects and needs a platform to securely upload privileged data sets for sanctioned use by Wharton professors, PhD students and other researchers.

While the relationship with Simple Fractal started with teaching MBAs and undergrads (still ongoing), Wharton approached us to help develop this data platform also.

  • Co-Founder Henry Xie teaches MBAs and undergraduates Python programming at Wharton.

Wharton's partner companies and institutions can securely upload data to a siloed provisioning of AWS resources for enhanced privacy and security on the platform.

Wharton admins can grant data access to professors, PhD students, and other researchers for use in research and analysis.

The platform also features a discussion forum, where researchers can share research ideas and discuss approaches.

The data platform features:

  • Ruby on Rails for application logic.
  • Amazon Web Services for siloed hosting of private company data.
  • Permissioning system to grant different levels of access to given professors, PhD students, and research assistants.
  • Discussion forum with user-specific visibility and privacy logic.

Whether you're interested in secure data platforms or high-quality practical training workshops, please get in touch with us. See below for what Rocco Spinelli, Director at The Wharton School, had to say about us.

Technical workshops are in high demand at The Wharton School. General Assembly told me they were sending their best instructor to teach the students at Wharton, and after attending the workshop myself I couldn’t agree more. Henry Xie did an amazing job teaching a bunch of true Python novices the ins and outs of the program in a very intuitive way. Henry mixed in hands-on exercises throughout the workshop, which provided the students with an opportunity to apply their learning right away. The overall structure of Henry’s Python workshop was very well designed, and our students benefitted greatly from his expertise.

Several students followed up with me after the workshop, and told me how much they appreciated Henry’s thoughtful approach to teaching Python to a group of beginners. We here at the Wharton Customer Analytics Initiative were so pleased and impressed with Henry’s workshop that we decided to bring him back to lead more advanced workshops in Python and SQL. I value the relationship we have with Henry Xie and General Assembly, and I look forward our continued collaboration on future workshops.
