Custom Development

The CSU is ready to help provide the tools to meet your academic, administrative and research computing needs. We employ a best practices approach to understand the needs of a client, and design solutions that meet those needs. From process mapping through to implementation we can build your application from the ground up.

Best Fit for Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) Software

Sometimes ready made software exists that meets the needs of our clients. When more than one such packages exist, what is the best way to determine which one to choose? The CSU can assist in analyzing, selecting, and setting up commercial software, as well as provide infrastructure and access for our clients and yours.

View our Project Portfolio to see how we make use of COTS solutions.


Tools and Platforms

The CSU has access to industry standard tools and platforms, to make sure that your software runs the way you need it to. We develop in most major programming languages, and have robust Windows and Linux infrastructures to host your applications, whether developed by the CSU, or purchased from a third party.
