If you’re an HPC vendor, you know Addison. If you don’t know him, you’ll soon be hearing more from him. Addison has been in the business for quite some time, first with SGI, then as an analyst with the server group at IDC. For the past two years, Addison was GM for our sister organization, Tabor Research, and in July he acquired all the assets of the division, relaunching it as InterSect360 Research. When Addison speaks, people listen!
