In order to permanently assure their competitiveness, enterprises and institutions are increasingly forced to deliver highest performance. Powerful computers, among the best in the world, can reliably support them in doing so.
This course is targeted towards decision makers in companies that would like to learn more about the advantages of using high performance computers in their field of business. They will be given extensive information about the properties and the capabilities of the computers as well as access methods and security aspects. In addition we present our comprehensive service offering - ranging from individual consulting via training courses to visualization. Real world examples will finally allow an interesting insight into our current activities.
