HPC event in NYC

November 30th, 2006 · 1 Comment

On Wednesday, December 6, Microsoft, Digipede, and other Microsoft HPC partners will host a half-day informational event describing how to achieve faster “time to insight” from computationally intensive financial applications. 

Nathan Trueblood and I will be there (with one or more Digipede customers and a bunch of our friends from Microsoft) to help make this a great event for anyone in financial services who needs more computing horsepower for their Windows applications.

I’ll present information on how the Digipede Network integrates with and adds value to Microsoft’s entire technology stack, inclulding the new Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (CCS), Visual Studio 2005, .NET, Excel 2007, SharePoint 2007, and more.  We’ll run through some real-world examples of how our financial services customers use the Microsoft / Digipede solution to make more money by dramatically improving application performance and scalability.

One of Digipede’s clients will also be a featured speaker at this event.

Date:  Wednesday, December 6, 2006
Time:  Welcome, 8:30; event 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Location:  1290 Avenue of the Americas – 6th floor, New York (that’s between 51st and 52nd street in the Axa Equitable building)

Registration and other details:  http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/eventdetail.aspx?culture=en-US&eventid=1032306637&x=15&y=14

We hope to see you there!
