Tata Elxsi To Focus On Hardware, Software Services

Bangalore: | Updated: Dec 25 2002, 05:30am hrs
Tata Elxsi is all set to push for a hardware for Researchware thrust for its system integration practice, and a Software for Researchware focus for its product design services business to expand its opportunities in the fast growing HPC (high performance computing) segment.

The thrust is in tune with the companys twin-pronged approach of building in-house competencies across sectors and play more in the software and IP building segments (besides services). The companys GM worldwide marketing and sales S Ramakrishnan told eFE that some of the key applications will include bio-computing, circuit simulation and molecular dynamics.

In the application domain, we cover the entire gamut from developing computational models to visualisation tools. Tata Elxsis positioning in the HPC domain is because of its inherent capabilities in addressing computational issues related to scientific research. We have over two decades of experience in providing HPC solutions, Mr Ramakrishnan said.

The portfolio of HPC-related offerings will include computational problem modelling, analysis and simulation performance enhancement and optimisation for applications - load balancing for better processor utilisation and code parallelisation, benchmarking/tuning and building interactive GUI (graphic user interface) based tools.

Tata Elxsis system integration business also has alliances with IBM and SGI. But our software thrust will look at offering services from developing computational models to visualisation tools, with the ability to work in a multi OS/multi CPU environment, he added.
