Situation

Rebecca Hartman-Baker is inspiring students to become the workforce Western Australia will need for its world-class research projects.

Solution

Throw a profiling party to make code-optimization a fun activity.

These students are the cream of the crop – and the Allinea tools will definitely help them to become more competent computational scientists.

University at Buffalo

Creating a holistic geoscientific model is complicated enough. So when scientists have to debug their computer code, they turn to Allinea DDT, a tool easy enough for undergraduates to use.

Situation

To gain a more holistic view of the planet, environmental scientists and engineers are linking their models together and bringing in more data. The size, complexity and distributed nature of their projects make the traditional methods of debugging ineffective. Time and budget constraints make the problem seem insurmountable.

Solution

Allinea DDT – the leading graphical debugging tool – makes it easy to debug a complex, multi-tiered project.

People were impressed with the results Christine achieved using Allinea DDT and assumed she was a highly educated computer science technician; whereas, at the time, I think she might have taken just one ‘intro to computer science’ course.
Dr. Shawn Matott, computational scientist, University at Buffalo’s Center for Computational Research

University of Luxembourg - Allinea Software - case studyUsing high performance computing transforms research possibilities – and possibilities grow faster when applications and users reach their full potential.

Situation

System users compete for system time, and to get more results from their supercomputer and speed up research need to run their applications faster.

Solution

The Allinea MAP profiling tool to complement the existing installation of the Allinea DDT debugger.

Researchers in areas like engineering just want to improve and run their simulations, without having to learn too much about the detail of the system – and Allinea Software’s tools are ideal for helping them.
