RESTON, Va., and HANOVER, Germany, March 5 — Software AG announces the availability of the new ARIS Version 9.0 at CeBIT 2013 in Hanover, Germany. ARIS 9.0 combines the latest technology megatrends – Cloud, Mobile, Social and Big Data/Analytics – and makes them available for a broad user group within a company and beyond. The new ARIS Connect, part of the ARIS 9.0 platform, is fully cloud capable and can be deployed in public, private or hybrid infrastructures. Users can also access the platform via mobile devices.
With ARIS 9.0, Software AG delivers a platform for business process management that covers the entire range of customer needs from business and IT areas, even beyond the company's borders. ARIS 9.0 addresses role-specific expertise and the widest variety of individual requirements by providing every user within a company or public administration agency with the right tools environment, product perspective and user interface coupled with the right information and data. The tools can be customized to meet project-specific needs at every level, from the metamodel to configuration of the user interface.
ARIS 9.0 is easy to learn and use thanks to its new intuitive and browser-based look and feel. Its intuitive handling with toolbars shortens the path between individual functions, saving users valuable time. Further, ARIS 9.0 provides results that are relevant for the daily business of all stakeholders, including advanced analytic capabilities, dashboard technologies, spreadsheets and simulation capabilities. Best practices and an integrated methodology guarantee added value – fast.
To round up the completely redesigned user experience, there will be new patented symbols for visualization of processes, providing clarity and simplicity. The design makes ARIS projects even more efficient.
"An agile business structure that enables companies to align IT with business goals is a key component of our strategy of generating maximum value for our customers," emphasized Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and member of Software AG's Management Board. "ARIS offers high performance, user-friendliness and comprehensive functionality while supporting companywide collaboration. The ongoing development of ARIS to combine Social, Cloud, Mobile and Big Data/Analytics is attracting a lot of attention from our customers."
Now with the new ARIS Connect, part of ARIS 9.0, businesses can draw on the potential of social collaboration to introduce process improvements at departmental and IT levels. ARIS Connect works with a new HTML5-based client technology that also enables access via mobile devices so anyone can collaborate with anyone else – anytime, anywhere. The product is based on a scalable cloud architecture that will support deployment in public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

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.
