  • This study investigated how high-performance computing (HPC) investments can improve economic success and increase scientific innovation. This research focused on the common good and provided uses for DOE, other government agencies, industry, and academia. The study created two unique economic models and an innovation index: 1 A macroeconomic model that depicts the way HPC investments result in economic advancements in the form of ROI in revenue (GDP), profits (and cost savings), and jobs. 2 A macroeconomic model that depicts the way HPC investments result in basic and applied innovations, looking at variations by sector, industry, country, and organization size. Amore » new innovation index that provides a means of measuring and comparing innovation levels. Key findings of the pilot study include: IDC collected the required data across a broad set of organizations, with enough detail to create these models and the innovation index. The research also developed an expansive list of HPC success stories.« less
  • This report presents the results of a study performed by Gartner Group, Inc. for the US Department of Energy (DOE), through a contract with the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The purpose of the study is to estimate the economic impact of the Federal High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC) Program which was proposed by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), Executive Office of the President, on September 8, 1989. That Program is an implementation of the Research and Development Strategy for High Performance Computing, which was transmitted to Congress by OSTP on November 20, 1988. The objectivemore » of this Gartner Group study to provide an assessment of the likely economic impact and benefits of the Federal HPCC Program and the risks of non-support of this program. The goals of the HPCC Program are to: support computational advances through R D effort; Reduce uncertainties to industry through increased cooperation and continued use of government as a market for High Performance Computing (HPC) prototypes; Support underlying research, network, and computational infrastructures; and support the U.S. human resource base.« less
