Leading Edge Design Group Launches High Performance Research Computing 2022 Trends and Insights Survey

July 11, 2022
Leading Edge Design Group (LEDG) is pleased to announce the launch of the High Performance Research Computing 2022 Trends and Insights Survey. LEDG created the survey to gather information for our customers, partners, and the industry to provide important information for organizations grappling with the increased demand for High Performance Computing (HPC) . HPC is typically an enterprise-wide service that provides the advanced computational and data-driven capabilities needed for innovative and collaborative research activities often created by non-profit/government funded grants, for-profit competitive discovery processes, and other market growth initiatives. The survey is aimed to gather and share insights for designing, planning, and implementing scalable, adaptable, and efficient research computing data centers and infrastructure to support current and future HPC demands. LEDG will also be hosting a HPC Forum on September 14 to review the results with survey participants. For questions or to participate in the the invitation-only survey and forum, please email Colin Buckley at cjb@ledesigngroup.com. The survey is open to HPC, IT, and Research leaders in Higher Education, Life Sciences, and Healthcare.


Leading Edge Design Group Smart Buildings Practice Embraces the WiredScore SmartScore Accredited Professional (AP) Program

May 10, 2022
Leading Edge Design Group (LEDG) is pleased to announce that its Smart Buildings Practice supports the WiredScore SmartScore AP program. SmartScore was created in collaboration with the owners and users of the world’s most advanced properties. The certification provides clarity on what constitutes a smart building, guidance on how to achieve the status, and proof of the value it adds to your asset.

For our clients who desire certification, SmartScore enables owners to follow a framework as they design and implement an integrated Smart Building. SmartScore provides a scorecard that measures the breadth and depth of the user stories implemented as well as the assessment of the technology, processes and procedures that support their implementation. This ensures the building is set up to meet the expectations of today’s tenants and has been future-proofed to implement the user stories of tomorrow. The scorecard consists of two sections: User Functionality and Technological Foundation.
