TIBCO Works with Dartmouth College to Promote a Responsible Return to Learning

Today (21 Sept), TIBCO announced it is providing data analytics tools and support to Dartmouth College through its Corporate Charitable Giving Program.

In June, Dartmouth, located in Hanover, N.H., announced its plan to invite more than half of its 4,400 undergraduate students back to campus per term through the summer of 2021. Given Dartmouth’s quarter system, this will allow most undergraduates the opportunity to spend two terms on campus during the 2020-2021 academic year.

To serve its urgent data collection needs, Dartmouth opted for TIBCO GatherSmart to ensure appropriate management of temperature and symptom screening information for community members on campus at an enterprise scale. A TIBCO4Good™ initiative, TIBCO GatherSmart is an at-cost solution for businesses and communities that understand the value of proactive monitoring to control the further spread of COVID-19.

TIBCO GatherSmart™, TIBCO® Data Virtualisation, and TIBCO Spotfire® will help Dartmouth gather, monitor, and share different data sets related to COVID-19 and create a real-time view of its response to the pandemic. Dartmouth joins the roster of leading organisations – including TIBCO – employing TIBCO GatherSmart to create a responsible environment for those returning to their places of work and learning.

Dartmouth’s Information, Technology & Consulting group will also leverage TIBCO’s powerful analytics tools to organise its multiple-sourced COVID-19 data, enabling the institution to act quickly and limit exposure on campus.

Mitch Davis, chief information officer, states,

“TIBCO has helped Dartmouth pool and integrate data efficiently to create a real-time understanding of community health, which in turn, informs institutional decision-making.”   

“Students everywhere feel the impact of the pandemic. As learning institutions begin to reopen, we can lessen this impact, putting the well-being of students, faculty, and staff front and centre,” said Dan Streetman, chief executive officer, TIBCO.

“Collaborating with Dartmouth, we’ve created a better environment for its extended community to carry on its mission to educate the most promising students and prepare them for a lifetime of learning. The innovations we developed will help other institutions and companies around the world to reopen with confidence.”

With a platform flexible enough for event management applications and adaptable to any company’s existing policies, the TIBCO GatherSmart solution is a valuable tool for any global organisation in any industry.
