Exploding Demands for Big Data, Analytics, Risk Management, Ultra-low Latency and Compute Power Requires Optimized HPC Infrastructures
To compete successfully in today's highly intertwined global markets, financial firms need to run more iterations, simulations, and analysis with more data faster. The result is for better decision making. Big Data presents data challenges in addition to compute challenges found in traditional risk and pricing applications. HPC Clusters, Grid, Networking and HPC Cloud enable firms to build an agile infrastructure to run both data-intensive and compute-intensive workloads. Dave Weber will host this distinguished panel who will discuss considerations in supporting both workloads to deliver greater insight faster from data for better decisions."
