Robin Winsor, President of Cybera, presented these slides at the Cybera 2010 Annual General Meeting on December 1, 2010.
Key messages included:
1) Global Competitiveness can be achieved two ways.....a) Staying on top of developments in innovation and emerging technologies (ie. technology helped David defeat. Goliath)....and b) Maintaining power in numbers by working together with collaborators and partners (becoming a shark insted of separate small fish).
2) New Cybera services being introduced this year include a Transit Exchange, Group Buying Program, Microcluster installation for testbed and production computing (joint with WestGrid), and addressing broadband connectivity in Alberta
3) Looking ahead, Big Data challenges need to be served across multiple disciplines -- and Cybera is in a position (in the phase between research development and maturity) to help make that happen.
