RITG designs and supports computer systems that fall outside of the HMS IT Client Services Group's support. In general, this means RITG is best suited to help you with server-based computing (systems designed for high reliability and use by many users) or specialized research applications.
Examples of typical applications for which you might work with RITG are high-end databases, computing clusters, research file servers, specialized web servers, or computers attached to research equipment.
Whether you are a department administrator, principal investigator, or researcher, the Research Information Technology Group is available to help you plan, implement, and maintain computer systems architecture to support your work.
It's never too early to get us involved. In fact, you should talk to us even if you don't yet have funding for the project you have in mind, and even if you won't be purchasing immediately. Planning well in advance will help us alert you of any potential pitfalls, and we'll know your project is coming.
Here are some examples of how we can help you:
Involving RITG early in your planning process has many advantages. Your plans will be evaluated by computer experts with diverse experience, in a variety of areas:
In the unlikely event that your needs fall beyond the expertise of RITG staff, we can help you engage the services of an outside consultant with suitable knowledge.
