Keynote Speakers Announced for EnterpriseHPC’16 Summit on Advanced Scale Computing for the Enterprise

News Release: Tabor Communications

SAN DIEGO, CA – February 24, 2016 – The EnterpriseHPC’16 summit, the market-leading live hosted summit dedicated to exploring the emergence of advanced scale computing in commercial settings, today announced the final lineup of end-user speakers for its summit program aimed at arming senior technology business executives in cross-vertical corporate organizations with core knowledge on advanced scale and high performance computing for competitive advantages.

In its third year, EnterpriseHPC’16, scheduled for March 20-22, 2016 at the Paradise Point Resort in San Diego, California, will once again host executives in commercial organizations who are exploring the benefits and associated challenges of scaling their enterprise computing to meet new production opportunities available in the Big Data paradigm.

The program caters towards fostering community and discussion, including educational keynote tracks with open dialogue segues, boardroom case-study sessions with cross-vertical peer groups, and one-on-one solutions briefings with leading suppliers. Executives will leave armed with information and ideas on how to further their strategy and best maximize their returns for their own corporate advanced IT investments.

Key topics driving the EnterpriseHPC’16 summit include advanced scale ROI, converged infrastructures, deployment techniques, security, the intersection of Big Data and HPC, and more.

The summit is fully paid for qualified attendees (including flight, hotel, meals and summit badge).

EnterpriseHPC’16 Keynotes Include:

  • The Brilliant Factory: Using Advanced Scale Computing and Smart Machines to Drive New Value

    Speaker: Lynn DeRose, Principal Investigator Systems Engineering, GE Global Research

    General Electric Company is currently revolutionizing the way they measure, model, and analyze their own factory assets in a corporate wide initiative called The Brilliant Factory. But communicating the benefits of these initiatives can be a little dry: aircraft engines, power turbines, locomotives and imaging devices, although very useful to making human life more pleasant, are not really things that people want to talk about on a daily basis. This talk will give you a high-tech flavor (think BBQ) of how GE innovated and took their message about smart machines on the road to get the word out to the masses using one of the most creative implementations of sensors and advanced scale technologies available today.

  • Use of HPC Throughout the Product Cycle

    Speaker: Mohamad El-Zein, Advanced Materials and Mechanics, John Deere, Moline Technology Innovation Center

    HPC has the reputation of solving problems related to climate prediction, aerospace and defense, oil discovery, financial services and more. However, the use of HPC in everyday product design from inception through the supply chain is rarely highlighted due to its scarcity in terms of “HPC”. In his talk, Mohamad El-Zein will scan through areas of use of HPC through the supply chain of product design at John Deere, highlighting both the challenges faced as well as the benefits received through the use of advanced scale technologies.

  • Creating Value Using Advanced Scale Computing at Gulfstream Aerospace

    Speaker: Larry Patterson, Sr. Manager High Performance Computing, Gulfstream

    The road to building advanced scale systems to tackle a myriad of workloads in competitive commercial environments comes with perils that enterprises must fully understand and properly navigate. Larry Patterson of Gulfstream will explore the deployment techniques Gulfstream is putting into practice to solve challenges facing its various departments, examine the challenges organizations face as they expand into this next frontier of computing, and underscore the ROI that can come from building new supercomputing technology platforms for one of the world’s leading business jet manufacturers.

Co-chaired by EnterpriseTech Managing Editor, Doug Black, and HPCwire Editor, John Russell, the EnterpriseHPC’16 summit program will explore the trends and challenges of advanced scale and high performance computing being integrated into the data rich commercial environment.

EnterpriseHPC’16 is sponsored by DDN Storage, EMC, IBM, Verne Global, ASRock Rack, Bright Computing, Cray, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Lenovo, SGI, System Fabric Works, and Univa.

The conference is hosted by EnterpriseTech and HPCwire through a partnership between Tabor Communications and nGage Events, the leader in host-based, invitation-only business events.
