DescriptionThe tutorial provides an impartial, practical, non-sales focused guide to enabling an organization to deliver value by investing in HPC. A well-managed business case process can be hugely beneficial to HPC managers by demonstrating the value of HPC to the organization, driving the continuation and growth of HPC investment.
The tutorial is applicable to either a first investment or an upgrade of existing capability. It is most relevant to organizations with a clear purpose (e.g., industry) or those with a clear service mission (e.g., academic HPC facilities). It presents a rare opportunity for HPC managers, practitioners, and stakeholders to learn more about the steps involved in considering HPC investments, identifying the value, building a business case, engaging stakeholders, securing funding, requirements capture, market survey, strategic choices, and more. Attendees will benefit from exploration of the main issues, pros and cons of differing approaches, practical tips, hard-earned experience and potential pitfalls.
The tutorial is based on experience across a diverse set of real world cases in various countries, in both private and public sectors, with projects of all sizes and shapes.
