@HPCpodcast: Software May Be Eating the World – But Is it Eating HPC?

In this episode of the @HPCpodcast, sponsored by Lenovo, Shahin and Doug kick off what we expect to be a series of looks at HPC software and its convergence with traditional enterprise IT software. We cover the evolution of software through phases of IT, we look at the roster of relevant HPC programs from development environment to system administration and end-user requirements, along with traditional and emerging applications. Shahin also shares his somewhat contrarian take on the aphorism about software eating the world.
