  21. 21. Rocky Mountain Supercomputing Centers, Inc. Next Step…  Develop “the new” Econometrics Model around CI & Small- to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) –Build a first-of-a-kind economic model to demonstrate the economic impact of the HPC Cloud and related CI (i.e., how directly and indirectly does CI affect the region, the Province or State and the community) –Unfortunately, to the best of our knowledge, no one is even thinking about modeling economic impact of CI and SMEs for sustainable growth  RMSC offers its support, along with Dr. David Park of George Washington Univ, to start the development ▬ Any one else game to play? 21 The Economics Behind Cyberinfrastructure (CI) – Cybera Summit 2010 © 2010 RMSC
