Common Client Challenges
- Supporting legacy code is always challenging, particularly when introducing new features or products.
- Getting PhD-written code to run faster and be maintainable can be frustrating. Making sure your code is scalable is a key component to high-performance computing.
- Domain-expert users like researchers and scientists can be risk-averse when it comes to adopting new technology. If they believe their spreadsheets or algorithms are better, then your product is toast. Identify lead users early on for successful adoption.
- Measuring direct impact of your HPC product in a larger scientific or business process can be difficult. Consider unique outcomes or "fingerprints" your technology generates that could tie it to P&L.
