Canadian Commercial Adoption of High Performance Computing (HPC): Participation Call
This study is being performed by High Performance Computing Insights Canada in partnership with the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA.ca), Compute Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Innovation and the Branham Group. Additional support has been provided by provincial ministries in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and by Microsoft Canada.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the commercial values of High Performance Computing (HPC aka Supercomputing) to Canadian industry. Most HPC experts agree that Canadian adoption of supercomputing lags other nations against which our economy competes, so we will also be studying the barriers to adoption. To be competitive on a global scale, Canadian enterprises need to supercharge their business and R&D processes with supercomputing. Initiatives are being launched in the US and other nations to encourage greater HPC adoption by small and medium sized enterprises, if similar initiatives are not developed for Canada, we'll be left behind. This HPC study will create a foundation of solid data from which to design initiatives together with the study partners tailored to the needs of Canadian business.
