International Data Corporation (IDC)
today announced the fourth round of recipients of the HPC
Innovation Excellence Award at the SC12
supercomputer industry conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Prior winners
were announced at the ISC'11, SC11, and ISC'12 supercomputing
The HPC Innovation Excellence Award recognizes noteworthy achievements
by users of high performance computing (HPC) technologies. The program's
main goals are to showcase return on investment (ROI) and scientific
success stories involving HPC; to help other users better understand the
benefits of adopting HPC and justify HPC investments, especially for
small and medium-size businesses (SMBs); to demonstrate the value of HPC
to funding bodies and politicians; and to expand public support for
increased HPC investments.
"IDC research has shown that HPC can greatly improve ROI and scientific
advancement. The award program aims to collect a large set of success
stories across many research disciplines, industries and application
areas," said Chirag
Dekate, research manager, High Performance Computing at IDC.
"The winners achieved clear success in applying HPC to greatly improve
business ROI, scientific advancement, and/or engineering successes. Many
of the achievements also directly benefit society."
Winners of the first three rounds of awards, announced in 2011 and early
2012, included 13 organizations from the U.S., three from the People's
