Our Services

We offer a wide range of services that include but are not limited to:

  • Work closely with researchers to better understand their goals and practices to better evaluate technology needs and recommend appropriate solutions that allow them to take full advantage of available resources
  • De-identification of research data
  • Analytics on GSU’s cluster
  • Spark / Hadoop training
  • Grant Support. Talk to us about your ideas while you are writing the grant. We can help you incorporate the cost of appropriate computational support, including appropriate software licenses and analytical personnel.

We offer expertise in multiple software including:


SAS helps solve next-generation business problems with market-leading business analytics solutions.

rpojectThe R Project for Statistical Computing

R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, etc.) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source route to participation in that activity.
