Dataflow Computing Highlights Great Britain’s Tech Prowess

March 13 — As the UK Technology sector cements its leading position in tech innovation worldwide, British firm Maxeler credits its growing success to the innovation of its dataflow engine technology. Dataflow is a highly novel compute concept where applications gain massive performance improvements and power efficiency by exploiting the inherent benefits of spatial programming. Earlier this week at the CeBIT IT exhibition, Maxeler – supported by UK Trade & Investment – demonstrated the technology and promoted the spatial programming initiative OpenSPL (www.openspl.org) to British PM David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Oskar Mencer, Maxeler CEO, spoke at length with the two world leaders about the design of dataflow engines and its particular use in the finance industry where stock exchanges and banks employ the engines to accelerate risk analytics in real-time. Dr. Mencer said of the visit, “to have two world leaders visit our company stand and appreciate the significance and opportunity that spatial computing presents was a great honour.” In organising the visit, UKTI Tradeshow Director Ron Archibald said, “UKTI is delighted that Maxeler has exhibited at UK Partner Country at CeBIT. Maxeler has cutting edge technology for handling massive data flows, a subject at the heart of this year’s CeBIT. Maxeler develops and manufactures in London and is a great British success story. UKTI looks forward to working with them on other events to build on their international success.”

Promoting dataflow computing doesn’t stop here, “We know this is a great solution as its already deployed in many sectors including Oil & Gas and Finance. What’s on the horizon is equally exciting too and with the continued support of UKTI we will be able to carry this message forward.” said Glenn Rosenberg, VP of Operations.
