Technical Community Solutions

Professional Growth with Your Peers

Application developers and architects work collaboratively to help colleges and universities enhance their operating environments with advanced technologies and services. Internet2 connects you with peers who help you explore new approaches to global research challenges.

Today’s Challenges

Colleges and universities nationwide are facing new challenges and will continue to be asked to innovate and find new ways to effectively serve students, faculty, staff, and researchers. Institutions are also tasked with enhancing security, scalability, and cost savings that likely aren’t available to individual departments or through commercial providers.

As an application developer or architect, you need infrastructure, technology, and services that let you solve problems with sophisticated technical requirements, big data, complex process flows, and the ability to rely on and build on open-source solutions.

How Internet2 Helps

We know you need your people! Yes, we provide the technology and services that allow you to solve big problems. But perhaps equally important, we connect you with like-minded peers and colleagues who offer opportunities to learn and develop professionally. This means you can make a significant impact that can be measured by research advancements in your field, and recognition for the tireless work you do to achieve seemingly impossible technical feats and create innovative new solutions.
