The NCCS Operations Section ensures the functionality, performance, and usability of new NCCS systems and provides technical support, training, documentation and tools to NCCS users of operational systems. They develop and maintain large software applications and tools, provide access through these applications to the computational resources inside of the division, and provide platforms-as-a-service to NCCS users and staff so that they can develop their own applications that run on NCCS systems. Finally, the Operations Section showcases NCCS capabilities and OLCF user research accomplishments.
