Advancements in technology have enabled greater access to powerful research tools in the cloud and on personal workstations. Simultaneously, IT organizations are increasingly asked to provide support for such research technologies, creating new challenges for traditional IT services. Join a panel and audience discussion regarding growing technology needs of researchers and how IT organizations are addressing them.

Outcomes: Understand how other traditional IT organizations have organized and built service models for supporting research across the enterprise * Understand the challenges, required partnerships, and requisite skills needed to support research activities of teaching faculty and their students in a non-HPC environment * Build awareness of how institutions have successfully partnered with academic leaders to respond to research support needs
