Palantir Foundry Primary Use Case
Manager, Data Governance at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I didn't use Foundry, but I went through some training, and my team became certified in it. When I left the company, there were probably 100 research projects that had been added to it. I did it project by project. Around 30 were completed. About 40 or 50 were in progress, while there were 20 more in the queue. You could reuse data and leverage data that had been imported. We imported lots of Epic data.
You needed permission to see the Epic data. Someone with a research project approved by the institution could ask permission to join it with other data. In a relational world, you could say, "I'll give you database permissions, but I'll need to mask these columns that are based on those." It's similar to an SQL database.
People submitted their project requests to a project review committee. The capacity was limited because people needed to understand the platform, but I'm sure they have trained more people on it since then.
This solution is used more for the analytics available on the platform.
The main use was for a COVID-19 White House initiative that was handled by the Vice President, Michael Pence.View full review »
