Good (and Bad) Reasons to Outsource Software Engineering

Software outsourcing is a fairly common business practice these days. Although “outsourcing” may just mean asking somebody "outside" of the company to perform the work, it typically means that work is "shipped" off-shore. More...

Adaptation of Image Processing Software for Windows Azure and HPC Cluster

In parallel computing systems computations are executed simultaneously, wholly or in part. This approach is based on the partitioning of a big task into smaller subtasks that can run in parallel.

Parallel computing techniques in CAD drawing analysis

Sketches obtained as a result of import or export from different CAD packages to DXF/DWG formats often contain broken geometry relations: broken tangent, broken horizontal or vertical relations, gaps between entities, etc.

Comparison of ConcRT, OpenMP and TBB technologies for multi-core numeric computation

In order to compare ConcRT, OpenMP and TBB technologies, we implemented a few algorithms from different areas of numeric computation and compared their performance with C++ equivalents. Four functions were implemented.

Running Excel Models on an HPC Cluster

Mathematical modeling of complex problems is far more mainstream than it once was, and Excel has played a major role in making that happen. From linear programming to statistical models, Excel is used to implement many different modeling techniques. Built-in functions and custom worksheets significantly enhance Excel’s flexibility and suitability as the modeling tool of choice within existing customer-based applications.

Advantages of the distributed implementation of the Monte Carlo method in neurobiology simulation

The goal of this paper is to demonstrate the performance benefits from using distributed algorithms and computational power of clusters for Monte Carlo method in simulating processes in the field of neurobiology.

CUDA and C++ AMP comparison

Microsoft announced new technology for GPGPU called C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism - C++ AMP. It accelerates the execution of C++ code by taking advantage of the GPUs present on video cards with DirectX11 support. The main structure of C++ AMP is influenced by its main competitors like OpenCL and CUDA. But unlike OpenCL and CUDA, that are more oriented in C code, C++ AMP looks like STL library with new C++11 support.

Sane Software Outsourcing

As a software provider, you are undoubtedly stressed. You need high quality developers but can't spend a fortune and have little time to babysit anyone. Perhaps you considered outsourcing– but you probably also have heard many horror stories in the media and from colleagues. We actually agree, typical outsourcing is not usually the answer as it’s proven to fail often. Thus, after more than 10 years providing successful outsourcing solutions, we at AMC Bridge decided to share our experiences. Here are top 5 tips we have used to ensure that outsourcing works properly.
