  • New services to underpin and innovate your numerical computing revealed by NAG
    SC13, Denver, USA | 17 – 22 November 2013 | Booth #1716
    The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) has revealed new services to enable users of numerical computing to benefit from NAG’s 4 decades of experience and expertise in numerical solutions. Numerical computing is the core of much of modern business analytics, data processing, modelling and research – i.e. it is often fundamental to the operations and future of the business. Thus, it is critical to be able to rely on the results of numerical computing and to be able to develop a computing advantage over competitors. NAG has delivered proven solutions in this area through its trusted Numerical Libraries for over 4 decades. In response to customer interest, NAG is now launching its Numerical Services to deliver the expertise and experience behind these highly reputed Libraries directly to developers and users of numerical computing applications – whether they use NAG products or not. This follows the success of NAG’s HPC Services business and enables customer access to the full range of NAG experts - numerical analysts, computer scientists, mathematicians, algorithm developers, software engineers, and more.
