Scientific communities have been rapidly expanding their ability to generate and use electronic data for

exploration, modeling and simulations, and for generating and testing hypotheses. However, the current

emphasis on data-driven discovery has generated new IT and informatics-related challenges that often

impede the goals of these communities. These challenges, especially when coupled with the shifting

hardware landscape, are also impacting the ability of campus computational and IT infrastructures to rapidly

adapt to scientific demands. The Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) works with various scientific

communities to assist in overcoming these challenges by leveraging new research in cyberinfrastructure,

computer science, and information sciences. In this talk, we address the successes and limitations we’ve

encountered in meeting those challenges with a focus on the gaps that new research in technology can

address to move scientific domains forward.
