sxsw-2016Applied Information Sciences has been selected to participate in the South by Southwest (SXSW) 2016 festival being held March 11th through the 20th in Austin, Texas.

As a part of the Trade Show exhibition, our team will showcase the Scale data processing architecture as a component within a cloud computing solution.

The Trade Show highlights the integrations and overlaps between SXSW’s converging industries and hosts a diverse range of forward-thinking exhibitors – from promising startups to established industry leaders.

“This is a great opportunity to share and interact with the rest of the industry”, says Tony Wolf, Director of Special Programs. “We helped our clients foster the release of some great contributions to the open-source community this past year. This has opened new doors for us, and we’ve seen some exciting new web-based technologies emerge from those components. For instance, a large data processing architecture called ‘Scale’, which we helped build for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, has caught the attention of a prominent commercial data services provider, and we’re anxious to explore their vision for that product. As for our participation at South by Southwest, we’re excited to exchange ideas and build relationships with fellow attendees of the festival.”

The SXSW Trade Show, which coincides with portions of the film and music festival, hosted more than 70,000 attendees in 2015, and anticipates an even larger presence this year. The exhibit is open from 10:00am to 6:00pm on March 13th through the 15th and from 10:00am to 2:00 pm on March 16th in the Austin Convention Center, Exhibit Halls 2, 3 and 4.
