  • AI Critical Measures: Time to Value and Insights

    AI

    AI is a game changer for industries today but achieving AI success contains two critical factors to consider — time to value and time to insights.  Time to value is the metric that looks at the time it takes to realize the value of a product, solution or offering. Time to insight is a key measure for how long it takes to gain value from use of the product, solution or offering. [READ MORE…]

  • Building the business case for Hybrid HPC Cloud

    HPC hybrid cloud

    Over the past two years, we’ve seen a dramatic acceleration in cloud adoption for HPC. Intuitively cloud computing makes sense — it enables organizations to rent rather than buy expensive HPC hardware, deploy solutions faster, reduce capital investments, and focus on core competencies. Software company Univa highlights the reason behind the recent cloud adoption boom among the HPC community, and the benefits of the hybrid HPC cloud. [READ MORE…]
