​​The systems operations group is responsible for developing and supporting many of the services that integrate ​and enable other computing across ISIS.

Quick Links


A rich web service is provided to other teams developing user programme software across STFC, which provides a login service (authorisation and authentication) and needed user information. We also facilitate user details management, both for the individual user and the ISIS & CLF User Offices.​ The breadth of other systems that use this has expanded over the years and we have recently started a project to develop a user dashboard. This dashboard will give summary information pulled from all of these systems so users and staff can, at a glance, see the progress of experiments and allow them to "drill down" and complete tasks as needed.​

Support and Infrastructure

Two teams deliver an IT helpdesk and behind-the-scenes infrastructure that are critical to the smooth running of the huge range of software used by staff and users across ISIS.​


We also are responsible for the continuing development of our SharePoint system that hosts internal systems and external science interation sites. We use our software engineering expertise to help facility staff make the most of our SharePoint investment. In addition to document storage, we have developed several custom solutions including a site for managing all ISIS projects from the small to the large, a taxi bookings management tool, fault reporting and a quality management system for CLF. We also help staff collaborate using Office 365 and SharePoint Online.

Technologies used
