Research endeavors frequently necessitate the creation of databases and related applications. ITS offers premier database design and programming services that leverage the Web-based Oracle Application Express (APEX) system. With these services, researchers can produce sound data management plans and create secure and effective systems for their research needs. Because the APEX system is entirely Web-based, there is no need forresearchers to purchase specialized hardware or software; it can be used on any computer with a Web browser.

ITS provides its services at a wide variety of price points and can customize its offerings to meet your needs. With the standard agreement, subscribers receive Web access to an Oracle database and two gigabytes of storage. The database design and programming services offered by ITS Research Computing staff often are provided through salary support from funded research grants, but these services also are available on a weekly, daily or hourly basis. Please contact ITS Research Computing for more information.
