It developed a mechanism to continuously monitor IT services, projects, budgets, and expenses, including personnel effort, and to deliver consistent reporting.

The project scope evolved, due to staffing and time constraints and opportunities to expand use of central services, to focus on deployment of a new HPC system and integration of small HPC services. The new system, Argon, launched in February 2017, enabling consolidation of 188 HPC systems from seven different units on campus.
