A University service since 2008

Purdue’s technical support environment is a decentralized structure that embraces autonomy in the management of disparate systems including configurations, deployment methodologies, tools, life-cycle management, and hardware standards.

SMARTcomputing is a collaborative university-wide systems provisioning and management initiative intended to establish a program to better leverage technology resources for hardware and software and to reduce the total cost of ownership for systems procurement, provisioning, and management by standardizing platforms, configuration management, patch management, and software distribution.
