Council on Competitiveness and USC-ISI In-Depth Study of Technical Computing End Users and HPC

Published May 2008

This study benchmarks the findings from Reveal against a group of “desktop–only” and entry level HPC users within a focused industrial sector. It confirms that even with customer requirements and/or a competitive threat, desktop-only firms still need assistance in overcoming the cost, talent and software barriers impeding HPC adoption. The important role of partnerships – with university and national laboratory HPC centers and with vendor/service organizations – is reiterated.
