IDC Presents an Update on ROI with HPC

roiIn this video from the 2015 HPC User Forum, Earl Joseph from IDC presents: Update on the ROI with HPC, Highlighting HPC Success Stories.

“This pilot study investigates how high-performance computing (HPC) investments can improve economic success and increase scientific innovation. This research is focused on the common good and should be useful to DOE, other government agencies, industry, and academia. The study has created two unique economic models and an innovation index:

  • A macroeconomic model that depicts the way HPC investments result in economic advancements in the form of ROI in revenue (GDP), profits (and cost savings), and jobs.
  • A macroeconomic model that depicts the way HPC investments result in basic and applied innovations, looking at variations by sector, industry, country, and organization size.
  • A new innovation index that provides a means of measuring and comparing innovation levels.”
