I am excited to announce that through partnership with the Electronic System Design Alliance, the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Association of Computing Machinery there will be a portion of the Design Automation Conference in San Francisco, June 24-28, 2018 dedicated to the Design IT Ecosystem.
From the DAC website:
The electronic product design ecosystem is a critical driver of the multi-trillion dollar worldwide market for electronic products. Without powerful computers and automation tools that allow complex systems to be created and designed, new and innovative electronic products would never make it to market.
But, there’s more to the story. Behind the scenes of every electronic product design effort is a team of professionals, along with sophisticated hardware and software, that insure that the computing bandwidth, availability, licensing, security and storage needs are in place so that project teams can stay on schedule. The Design IT Ecosystem is made up of the professionals who manage these complex computing resources and the hardware and software products and services that are required so that design teams can accomplish their mission.
At DAC 2018 in San Francisco, there will be five focus areas added to the discussion:
- License Management
- Grid Computing
- Storage Management
- Data Security
- Cloud Computing
These Design IT Ecosystem topic areas are being introduced as a key component of the broader electronic design ecosystem that is at DAC’s core.
