Appentra was supported by ENISA under the Digital Agenda line. It financially supports start-ups and development of business projects in the field of ICT, in order to boost the development and launch of new products and services, contributing to the generation of employment and wealth in this sector with high growth potential.
The funds will be invested in marketing, product development and R+D activities. Our goal is to close first sales of Parallware Trainer and to establish the basis for exponential growth of Appentra´s business.
Appentra is a technology company providing software tools for guided parallelization in high-performance computing and HPC-like technologies.
Appentra was founded in 2012 as a spin-off from the University of A Coruña. Dr. Manuel Arenaz and his team were conducting research in the area of advanced compilation techniques to improve the performance in high-performance parallel computing codes. Specifically, Dr. Arenaz’s team was focused on the static program analysis for parallelization of sequential scientific applications that use sparse computations, automatic parallelism discovery, and development of parallelizing code transformations for sparse applications.
This led to an idea: Develop a set of tools, The Parallware Suite, that help users manage the complexity of parallel programming, keep up with leading industrial standards, and not only parallelizes the code but train users how to parallelize their code. By using Parallware Suite, users can take control of their parallel applications, improve productivity in their output, and release the full potential of HPC in their environment.
