TECH SUPPLIER Jun 2022 - Market Note - Doc # US49270822
Key Takeaways from International Supercomputing Conference 2022 — A Glimpse of the Future of High-Performance Computing
This IDC Market Note provides IDC's observations and perspectives on the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC or ISC-HPC) held in Hamburg, Germany, from May 29 to June 2, 2022.
The story of HPC is that of change and disruption. What was once a niche industry that supported a vibrant and technical end-user community is undergoing rapid transition. HPC is going mainstream — a lot of private enterprises are investing in it. Governments see HPC as a strategic priority and are increasing their investments as well. The convergence between HPC and AI will no doubt increase synergies and optimize investment. The proliferation of quantum computing to accelerate HPC algorithms means HPC will no longer benefit from advances in classical computing alone. All said and done, this will be an interesting market to watch.
