Penn Foster Group, a mission-driven organization dedicated to enhancing workers' livelihoods through online education and training, embarked on a transformative journey towards personalized education and outcome-based training. With a learner-centric approach and a commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technology, Penn Foster Group recognized the potential of Generative AI (Gen AI) in revolutionizing the learning experience for its students. Central to this endeavor was the establishment of a robust data foundation—a prerequisite for harnessing the full potential of AI. Partnering with Koantek, Penn Foster Group undertook a data migration from Snowflake to a unified platform on Databricks, laying the groundwork for future innovation in education technology. Through a process of discovery and solution development, both teams collaborated closely to overcome challenges and achieve their objectives.
