HP has launched a series of Engineers Ireland webcasts focussing on the next generation hardware engineers are employing to get the most out of BIM and other resource-intensive software to deliver 21st century projects both at home and abroad.
“The greatest challenge facing our industry is the speed with which the world is changing in terms of how, when and where people want to work and consume technology,” said HP’s country manager Marcus McKenna, speaking at the launch of the Engineers Ireland-HP collaboration.
“We are delighted to partner with HP, an organisation employing many engineering professionals amongst its staff of more than 4,000 in Ireland. HP’s vision is aligned to that of the engineering community; creating life-improving technology and engineering solutions that inspire perfection,” said Caroline Spillane, director general, Engineers Ireland.
HP will showcase accelerating architecture, engineering, and construction workflows with its latest generation of Z workstations. The collaboration between Engineers Ireland and innovative tech leader will spell out time savings, flexibility and ingenuity in implementation and execution for major engineering projects.
“In Ireland, our strong work ethic and positive culture has enabled our engagement model, which in turn drives our workforce to deliver on the key business strategies to really make a difference to the business and community in Ireland. We help foster an entrepreneurial spirit and unlock creativity and innovation through our collaboration with our partners,” said McKenna.
HP Z desktop or mobile includes next-generation Intel® Xeon® processors, massive memory capabilities, and high-end NVIDIA® Quadro® graphics, which are certified for a wide range of AEC software applications and designed for easy, tool-free maintenance and upgrades.
HP Z Workstations will help engineers stay well ahead of the curve by leveraging ever more resource-intensive software used for BIM, digital prototyping and 3D CAD to deliver projects in less time and with greater reliability. The latest generation of HP Workstations are designed for tool-free, easy maintenance and include HP Performance Advisor and HP Remote Graphics Software.
“HP is pleased to be collaborating with Engineers Ireland in its mission to serve Irish society through the implementation of the highest standards of professional engineering. We look forward to working together to introduce the newer members and emeritus engineers alike to new ways of thinking by continually working to the latest standards in the industry,” said McKenna.
“There’s a mantra we have at HP,” he added, “that ‘if you want to predict the future you need to create it’ and that’s exactly what we’re doing”.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2016/04/19/blasting-through-the-bim-ceiling-hp-accelerates-engineering-performance/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/HP-EI-BIM-Collab-1024x683.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/HP-EI-BIM-Collab-300x300.jpgNewsBIM,CPD,education,Engineers Ireland,HP,ICT
