Research computing moves fast, and lives on the leading edge of new technologies in its pursuit of the very highest performance and the grandest scalability. Enterprise IT demands reliability, long-term deployments, and deep policy and procedure integration. Are these two faces of higher education technology at odds? Nope! Come see how UVic has established a pipeline through its computing teams, leveraging the strengths and requirements of each to produce unified IT infrastructure that harnesses both the boldly experimental drive of Research Computing as well as the procedural rigour and careful engineering of Enterprise IT.
