Big Data Changes Everything: Reinventing HPC

SESSION: Effective Application of HPC

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 4:30PM - 5:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Richard Evans

Presenter(s):Dave Turek, Ruud Haring



HPC must evolve in two fundamental ways: first, target complete workflows of critical interest to the organization; second, explicitly accommodate the impact of Big Data on system/solution designs. Today, many "HPC solutions" are nothing more than optimizations of important but narrowly defined algorithms embedded in much more involved workflows. The other elements of the workflow, including issues of data management and manipulation coupled with associated analytics, are often ignored. As a consequence, the value of HPC to the end user is less than it could be. As we enter the second half of this decade, IBM intends to reconcile these issues: take workflows that matter and apply to them all the HPC and analytic tools required to provide the greatest insight possible in the shortest amount of time. This session will talk to requirements and announcements that will successfully deliver innovations for the next generation of analytics and technical computing.
