IT Consulting

What Is IT Consulting?

The SDSC Research Data Services team leverages decades of technical experience and a wealth of UC institutional knowledge to provide expert administration and troubleshooting services within a fee-for-service model to UC San Diego, the UC system as a whole, and UC affiliates.

Consulting is most commonly used by research labs and other groups on the UC San Diego campus as a way to maximize research resources by minimizing IT costs. By relying on the SDSC Research Data Services team to render services only when necessary, IT consulting users afford top-tier IT support without budgeting for a full time IT resource.
