Cordys, a provider of SOA solutions, today announced the next phase of its global expansion focused on increasing capacity to service existing and new global clients headquartered in the U.S.
The appointment of Peter Bals as vice president enterprise solutions and chief strategy officer for North America coincides with the opening of Cordys' New York office that builds on Cordys' already established presence in Chicago and San Francisco. Bals will focus on further developing Cordys' financial services customer base in the U.S., building on the recent addition of ABN AMRO Insurance, AXA, Fortis and Interpay as customers.
To meet growing demand in other key sectors, Cordys also announced the appointment of John Cordell as director of alliances and business development, and Kevin Humbert as director of sales. Both will be based in Chicago and will focus on further expanding Cordys' U.S. customer base and partnership network.
"The combination of Peter, John and Kevin's solid experience within specific industries as well as their first-hand knowledge of the SOA technology landscape significantly strengthens Cordys' U.S. management team. These appointments build on the recent senior management appointments across Europe and underscore Cordys' commitment to becoming a major player in the global Composite Application Framework market across a range of key industries," said Omid Razavi, senior vice president of Cordys North America.
Peter Bals brings a wealth of experience in designing and delivering real-time SOA based solutions to financial services companies, including AIG, Merrill Lynch, Bear Stearns, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America. Cordys' newly established New York office will enable the company to further develop its growing stable of global financial services customers.

Kevin Humbert brings over 25 years of sales and management expertise focused on technology solutions for financial services and comes to Cordys from TIBCO Software, where he spent the last ten years helping customers to implement service-oriented architectures.
The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
