Driving Return on Investment with Engineering Simulation Software on HPC Infrastructure
High performance computing (HPC) has long been recognized as a key enabler for engineering simulation to increase the pace of industrial innovation and research advancement, however quantifying the value added to engineering simulation projects by HPC has largely been unexplored.
In a joint survey with Hyperion Research, 71 Ansys projects have been characterized by their area of innovation, industry categorization, innovation category, and cloud utilization. Documenting success stories and quantifying the relationship between investments in HPC and subsequent return on investment (ROI) provides insight into the types of HPC engineering simulation projects that see the greatest success and empowers project/program decision-makers with an understanding of the benefits of leveraging HPC.
Key findings of this survey will be described in the form of:
- Revenue ROI, and profit/cost savings ROI per dollar of HPC invested
- Comparison of ROI for projects primarily running on-premises versus in the cloud
- Comparison of ROIs between different areas of innovation, and industry
- Multiple project testimonials
