The NCSU Data Science Resources (NCSU-DSR) is one of three components of a federated data science platform that includes RENCI/UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC-Charlotte.
The NCSU-DSI’s resources were developed to provide NCSU faculty with centralized and shared Data Science resources; the underlying goal being to establish North Carolina as a leader in data analysis and management. NCSU recognizes data science/management as foundational for growth in scholarship and research. As a result, it has responded in several ways to institutionalize Data Science: One of those ways is to provide centralized data science resources. Shared resources reduces the barriers to this goal by
- Reducing administration costs for compliance
- Reducing administration costs for hardware and software maintenance
- Encouraging collaboration and exchange of ideas
