As problems become more complex, data sets exponentially larger, and hardware costs decline, HPC (High Performance Computing) is democratizing innovation by empowering small and mid-sized companies to build their own supercomputing facilities. This session takes a look at how a mid-sized financial services firm has achieved world-class capabilities at a fraction of the cost of utilizing third-party services. We discuss the advent of quantum computing and implications for future innovation; the ROI decisions between renting vs. owning HPC; problems encountered and solved; how this firm is utilizing HPC and high-speed GPUs to revolutionize the financial sector, and where they are heading next.
