10 Things CIOs Need to Know About High-Performance Computing
This IDC study provides market data and analysis aimed at ensuring that CIOs in commercial, government, and other settings have essential information about the contemporary realities and potential value to their organizations of HPC. HPC has firmly established its value for accelerating and improving innovation in corporate as well as government and academic organizations. Commercial adoption helped make HPC one of the fastest-growing IT markets in the past two decades, faster than the markets for flat-panel televisions or online gaming."Because HPC is fundamentally different from other corporate IT functions, CIOs often don't understand the potential benefits of adopting HPC or how to treat the HPC function after adoption occurs," according to Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for HPC. "Successful CIOs will need to acquire this understanding or risk losing ground to competitors that learn how to exploit HPC effectively."
