“One of the hottest topics we see is remote visualization for post-processing simulation results. One big issue in traditional workflows in technical and scientific computing is the transfer of large amounts of data from where these have been created to where they are analyzed. Streamlining this workflow by processing where the data have been created in the first place is tantamount to shorten the wall-clock time it takes end users to get final results. At the same time, hardware utilization is greatly enhanced by using innovative technology for remote 3D visualization. For this, we have long since entered into a strategic partnership with NICE.”
