To remain competitive in today’s computing landscape, Pitt Pediatrics has a dedicated academic information technology and desktop support team.
We have begun to invest in resources specific to the complex statistical and storage landscape of research, including the deployment of the University’s physical cyberinfrastructure to the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center. With this collaboration, our researchers can utilize the latest generation of scientific equipment and technologies to acquire, store, analyze and share data with their colleagues both locally and around the world.
Starting October 1, 2021, initial support for Pitt accounts and all Department of Pediatrics hardware owned by the University of Pittsburgh will be handled through the Pitt 24/7 IT Help Desk's centralized ticketing system. Tickets requiring further attention by Pediatrics IT personnel will be reassigned by the help desk.
