Interview: Raj Hazra and Charlie Wuischpard on Steering the Next Generation of Intel HPC

“I brought Charlie on because my philosophy is to put people that are better than me on things that are critical to the mission at hand. That is, Charlie’s focus is to run the ship hard, fast, lean and get it ready as it goes through that turn. And my job then is to work with the larger Intel organization at the strategy office up to the exec office in laying track for that new direction. And so together I think we’ve got a very good partnership to lead what has really become one of the strongest teams in HPC going forward.”
