Managing Complexity in the New Era of HPC

In this contributed article, Bill Wagner, CEO of Bright Computing, discusses how the HPC industry has entered an era of change in the past few years. New technologies, cloud, edge, and a broadening set of commercial use cases in the areas of data analytics and machine learning have set in motion a tsunami of change for HPC. This is no longer a tool for rocket scientists and the research elite. HPC is quickly becoming a strategic necessity for all industries that want to gain a competitive advantage in their markets, or at least keep pace with their industry peers in order to survive.
