Evaporation of the HPC Application Software Market

Session: BoF-27

Event Type: BOF

Time: 5:15pm - 6:45pm

Speaker(s): Stanley Ahalt, Suzy Tichenor

Location: 608-609

Abstract:

Interactive discussion among panelists and attendees regarding the challenges of creating and maintaining HPC application software for a competitive, corporate “production” environment, the state of the ISV application software market, and the role of government, universities and national laboratories to help accelerate development of new and/or updated code.

Discussion will also draw on Council on Competitiveness/DARPA Study of ISVs (http://www.compete.org/hpc/hpc_software_survey.asp), which found that the business model for HPC application software has almost evaporated and lack of scalable application software is impeding more aggressive industrial use, and national competitiveness.
