Centre of Excellence for Global Systems Science

Global System Science (GSS) is an emerging research field with enormous potential. Its application extends to both private and public sector value, where industrial, economic, societal and scientific data can be harnessed and analysed to tackle global challenges that arise in energy, health, financial markets and urban development, to name a few.

 

To reach the impact of such value, several technical and organization challenges must be surpassed. First and foremost is the size: analysing these issues revolves around large scale, heterogeneous datasets, including synthetic populations that require extreme detail and accuracy. Processing such data presents great technical challenges in capacity and scalable performance to power its simulations, delivery and visualization.

 

HPC is the logical solution to this challenge. It represents an IT segment that is already actively addressing scientific fields, as well as positioning itself as the service line to meet Big Data demands towards a variety of user groups, whether being research communities, large enterprise customers or the public sector. IDC forecasts HPC to surpass 12€ billion by 2016, with at least 7% global growth over the next 3 years, although local European markets have been slower to meet the potential due to a large hit on the segment during the recent European economic crisis.1 HPC providers look to leverage the economies of scale: expanding their services and widening their customer base, and to do so, lower their operating costs. To maintain active growth, European HPC must become more approachable and affordable to the increasing demand from potential, yet currently unreachable, customers.
