Academy of Art University chose Dell Precision workstations to give their students a professional working environment.
"Academy of Art University teaches aspiring students the skills they need to become professional artists and designers, across many disciplines including Architecture, Animation, Industrial Design and Fashion,” said Dr. Elisa Stephens, president of the Academy of Art University. “These fields require students to work in demanding, performance-critical applications and we rely on Dell Precision to meet their high-performance computing needs. Dell Precision workstations are packed with the power and graphics capabilities necessary for our students to produce their best work. We find that the most dynamic learning environment is one where the classroom matches the caliber of the professional marketplace.”
George Washington University partnered with Dell to design and deploy a centralized high-performance computing cluster.
“The Colonial One cluster, based on Dell HPC technology, will tremendously boost the amount of computational power we can dedicate to our projects,” says Andrei Alexandru, assistant professor, Physics, The George Washington University. “We can now carry out simulations that are more realistic and closer to physics, which is something we couldn’t do before because we didn’t have the computational power to do it.”Kennesaw University transforms HR processes with Dell Software’s Toad Business Intelligence Suite to deliver fast and accurate HRMS, employment, benefits, and payroll services. “We have multiple data sources, and we’re finally able to tie all of them together with this solution,” said Brad Smith, director of Payroll Services and Human Resource Information Systems. “We wanted something easy to administer to deliver data and data analysis tools to users’ desktops. That is what we got with the Toad Business Intelligence Suite.” Pepperdine University relied on Dell Software and its Dell KACE family of systems management appliances to deploy an enterprise client computing management system to automate and consolidate the management of university-owned Windows and Macintosh devices, faculty and staff computers, along with public use workstations. “The automation Pepperdine has achieved with our Dell KACE device management solution has helped us close a critical gap in information security as well as well as enhance the quality and responsiveness of technical support for our colleagues at the University,” said Kim Cary, chief information security officer for Pepperdine University. “As a result, we have been able to shift time and resources away from technical operations to focus more on teaching and learning support.”
