Intersect delivers expert advice, compute and analysis platforms, data storage, custom engineering, consulting and training programs to thousands of researchers every year.
The University of Adelaide has partnered with Intersect to provide research technology and support to its research community.
Digital Research Analyst for Research Support
The University of Adelaide has a dedicated Digital Research Analyst who is primarily located on the North Terrace campus. The Digital Research Analyst can provide support, consultancy and advice to the University of Adelaide research community to optimise research outcomes through the application of advanced IT solutions, including the use of data storage, virtual machines, and research data management. The DRA works closely with UOA ITDS, the Library, Division of Research and Innovation, and has access to the diverse expertise of the Intersect Services Team. The DRA can therefore serve as a point of contact for any technology-related queries from researchers. The DRA is also responsible for managing the Intersect Digital Research Training Program.

Digital Research Analyst
Throughout the year the Digital Research Analyst will coordinate and run multiple compute training sessions with a focus on research needs. These sessions will be offered to the university research community.
Intersect’s training courses range from Introductory to Advanced, and cover concepts from Data Collection, Management, and Analysis to Software, Programming, and Advanced Computing.

The full course catalogue is available on the Intersect Training page.
University of Adelaide researchers are also permitted to attend Intersect-run courses at any of the Intersect member institutions (subject to availability).
Intersect provides various data storage solutions to university researchers (including those who were previous members of eRSA) through various ‘Space’ products. These include DeepSpace for archive data and WorkSpace for active research data.
Intersect also provides University of Adelaide researchers (including those who were previous members of eRSA) with virtual machines. Researchers can choose between parallel processing for maximum performance, cloud computing for horizontal scale, or dedicated hosting for domain-specific applications, as some examples.
Custom software engineering
Intersect provides a full software engineering service that includes project managers, business analysts, software engineers, user-interface designers and testers. This service is specifically focused on building research applications across a range of disciplines, and caters for both large and small projects.
Domain areas include:
- Data capture and data management
- Analytical software
- Data visualisation
- Workflow management
As the University of Adelaide is a member of Intersect, software engineering is available to University of Adelaide researchers for a fee. For further information, please contact your Digital Research Analyst.
