Canary Islands Digital Innovation Hub
CIDIHub aims at becoming the cornerstone of Cloud Computing, HPC Simulation, Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Systems in the Canary Islands by connecting technology providers with entrepreneurs, SMEs and mid-caps; strengthening their competitiveness and opening up new business areas in the context of digitalization and Industry 4.0 (Digital manufacturing).
In general terms, CIDIHub has the ambition to provide Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Systems’ competences together with a Cloud Computing infrastructure and the associated expertise based on existing technology and standards that allow software vendors to offer their regional customers (being it SME or bigger companies) new cloud services along and across the engineering and manufacturing chain – even vendor independent. CIDIHub provides a ‘single point of access’ to computational (simulation) and data management services on high-performance clusters (HPCs). For that purpose, the CIDIHub relies on a main regional Competence Center (ITER) from the very beginning, addressing needs in the CAD/CAM, CAE, Systems or PLM communities, for whom technological services are executed on the existing infrastructure.
