The HPC Innovation Excellence Award recognizes noteworthy achievements

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 accelerate innovation cycles
greatly and in many cases can generate ROI. 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."
