Flying the Flag for UK Tech Innovation in Europe

Dataflow Computing highlights Great Britain’s Tech Prowess

David Cameron and Angela Merkel examine a Dataflow Engine at the Maxeler CeBIT stand

Hannover, March 13, 2014 – 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 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.
