LONDON, Sept. 10 -- TIBCO Software Inc.
today announced that the Environment Agency -- the leading public body
for protecting and improving the environment in England and Wales --
has chosen TIBCO as its technology partner to support its Modernizing
Regulation Program. The three-year business change initiative will help
to ensure that all regulatory activities, including permitting and
compliance, are delivered within a shared infrastructure, using a
defined framework of common processes. This is one of the Agency's
principal activities alongside environmental management, custody of
data, incident management, flood defense and education.
Dave Clarke, program executive at the Environment Agency, said, "Our
goal is to help the Agency deliver maximum effectiveness in its
regulatory activities with a more proportionate, consistent and timely
approach to its operations. We want to focus our efforts where we can
make the most difference. We chose to work with TIBCO because of its
technology neutral approach, meaning we are not tied in to any one
In an effort to standardize and simplify its regulation activities
and drive further efficiencies from its operations, the Environment
Agency is leveraging TIBCO business process management (BPM) and
service-oriented architecture (SOA) software to deliver independent
platform-neutral support for its heterogeneous IT environment. As a
result, the agency will have the ability to capture and model business
processes across different regulatory regimes and implement best
practices. The project will also enable the agency to incentivize
customer self-service and take a risk-based approach to assessment,
focusing on the higher-risk areas it is regulating.
Murat Sonmez, executive vice president of global field operations for
TIBCO, said, "Government departments and agencies are facing major
challenges as the rhetoric behind the transformation agenda gets turned
into concrete targets for improvement. The Environment Agency has had
the foresight to arm itself for the future and is taking a long-term
view, while delivering tangible business benefits today."
TIBCO Software Inc. provides enterprise software that helps companies achieve service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) success. With over 3,000 customers, TIBCO has given leading organizations around the world better awareness and agility-what TIBCO calls The Power of Now.

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.

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/02/2012 | AMD | Developers today are just beginning to explore the potential of heterogeneous computing, but the potential for this new paradigm is huge. This brief article reviews how the technology might impact a range of application development areas, including client experiences and cloud-based data management. As platforms like OpenCL continue to evolve, the benefits of heterogeneous computing will become even more accessible. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
