"*Without the right support, UCT researchers risk diverting time and
resources into the development and maintenance of potentially sub-standard
or inefficient solutions*, or just generally taking much more time to do
meaningful analysis," says Professor Danie Visser, deputy vice-chancellor
with responsibility for research. "There is increased potential for
valuable data or intellectual property to be lost, stolen or corrupted, and
for significant interruptions to research activity. A centralised effort is
needed to provide a mechanism for researchers to learn from one another and
develop institutional best practice."
