Atos Highlights Opportunities in New Era of Supercomputing & Big Data



London, 26 June 2017

Atos, a leader in digital transformation, declares the world is at the dawning of a new Age of Data in its Digital Vision for Supercomputing and Big Data thought leadership paper.

Speaking ahead of its launch at a reception today in the Houses of Parliament attended by over 100 MPs, Adrian Gregory, CEO, Atos UK&I said: “We all are privileged to be living through the fourth industrial revolution and to witness the world evolve at a rapid pace due to technology. This is especially true when we look at the developments in supercomputing and Big Data and the impact this is already having on the business landscape.

“Such advances mean that technology is no longer merely a facilitator; it is an engine driving the transformation of businesses and public services and is the defining force for new operating models across all sectors. It is crucial to organisations everywhere that we harness this potential and as the leading European supercomputing manufacturer, Atos has chosen to take the lead”, added Adrian.

Digital Vision for Supercomputing and Big Data deconstructs the key developments and explores ways in which organisations can drive performance gains and deliver new products and services more quickly to enhance the experience of customers and citizens.

Julian David, CEO, techUK, said: “The potential of data analytics, backed by the power of High Performance Computing is still to be fully realised. Providing organisations across the public and private sectors with a fuller understanding of the associated opportunities in analytics is key to ensuring the UK remains at the forefront of this digital revolution, and competitive on a global scale.”

Presented by some of the leading subject matter experts within Atos and across public and private sector including Intel, the STFC Hartree Centre and Cambium LLP, topics as diverse as the convergence of High Performance Computing and Big Data, self-learning cyber security and the risks and rewards of quantum computing are discussed in the paper.

Building on previous Digital Vision publications for London, Government plus Health, Digital Vision for Supercomputing & Big Data explains how increasingly, data will be collected and traded as part of a burgeoning data economy and how the processing and storage of vast amounts of data opens up new possibilities with agile analytics critical to those wishing to exploit new opportunities and drive growth.
