In the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), big data isn't a new or revolutionary concept. The center, located on the campus of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, has been managing huge volumes of data for companies from fields as diverse as energy and pharmaceuticals since 2005, helping them cut costs and boost returns.
Mateo Valero, director of the BSC, told ZDNet that the center has already participated in 3,000 research projects since it was founded. And, despite the ongoing economic crisis, it has created 150 highly skilled jobs in the last five years, and now has a total of 425 professionals working in four areas: computer sciences, life sciences, earth sciences, and computer applications. "We're very efficient when it comes to getting resources," Valero said with a smile.
