Assistant professor in IST wins Amazon Web Service grant

Elinor Madigan, assistant professor of information sciences and technology at Penn State Schuylkill and a professional associate of management development, has been awarded a grant from Amazon Web Service (AWS). The grant will be used in her IST 421 class -- "Advanced Enterprise Integration: Technologies and Applications" -- and will allow students to access AWS's infrastructure Web service platform in the cloud.


Madigan's students will be working with data mining, uncovering data patterns and integrated systems that share data from a variety of data sources. AWS is providing access to their massive computing capacity and storage facilities.
