This deliverable will contain a description of the cases analysed during the last six months of the project and a overall technical summary of the codes analysed during the project, including statistics on timings of the analyses, types of problems identified and main recommendations. It will also include a summary of the recommendations for tool developers and programming model standardization bodies that will arise from the project. Task 4.2 and 4.3 will contribute one section each of the deliverable.

Customer Feedback Measurement II

This deliverable will summarize the findings of the customer advocate during the second year of the project. It will include a section reporting on the second and third User Forum meetings. It will also explicitly state the actual suggestions made to the Customer Advocate to the internal Operational Management meetings of the projects and the Customer Advocate vision of how whether and how such suggestions did influence the actual operation of the POP CoE.

Derived from the experience made in POP, the general performance tuning workflow has been described and published as a best practice.

POP Proof-of-Concept

This deliverable will contain a description of the proof-of-concept work during the last 6 months of the project, including a public version of the reports and a summary of the findings and recommendations to the customers. It will also include a complete list of recommendations for tool developers and programming model standardization bodies that may arise from the studies performed during the entire project as well as recommendations from mock-up tests which should be used within future HPC-training activities.

Intermediate POP Use Cases Report

Public report providing overall statistics about Use Cases and associated KPIs as well as a selection of successful and especially motivating use cases.

Task 4.2 and 4.3 will contribute one section each of the deliverable.

Proof-of Concept work set-up

This deliverable will detail requirements for proof-of-concept work including a list of proposed tools and their requirements, outlines for general application and performance analysis plans similar to the performance audit but which will serve more as a template and will be refined before beginning the Proof-of Concept work on a specific application together with the customer as the work is very application and target specific. The mock-up test-base environment and templates for Proof-of-Concept work documents and reports is set up.

First-year Report on Proof-of-Concept

This deliverable will contain a description of the proof-of-concept work during the first year of the project, including a public version of the reports and a summary of the findings and recommendations to the customers. It will also include recommendations for tool developers and programming model standardization bodies that may arise from the studies as well as recommendations from mock-up tests which should be used within the training activities.

Final POP Use Cases Report

Second public report providing overall statistics about Use Cases and associated KPIs as well as a selection of successful and especially motivating use cases.

Second-year Report on Proof-of-Concept

This deliverable will contain a description of the proof-of-concept work during the second year of the project, including a public version of the reports and a summary of the findings and recommendations to the customers. It will also include recommendations for tool developers and programming model standardization bodies that may arise from the studies as well as recommendations from mock-up tests which should be used within the training activities.

Second Market review

This deliverable will update the market analysis in D3.2 and set out the strategy for continuing to develop POP business over the remainder of the project.

Customer Feedback Measurement I

Analysis Processes

This deliverable will detail the Performance Audit and Performance plan services stating the standardized operational procedure to be followed in the assessment activities of tasks 4.2. and 4.3. including all needed documents and reports (e.g. Exit Reports Template).

Report and recommendations for POP sustainability

This report will outline a number of alternative approaches to sustaining the POP activity after the end of the project, and make recommendations on how the activity should be carried forward.

POP 2 Business Plan

This will identify which of the models in D3.5 the consortium has adopted and lay out a business plan for the future activity including an updated market analysis, future revenue targets and a set of organisational goals.

POP Community Development and Marketing Tools

Service catalogue (e.g. in the form of a leaflet and a presentation) that can be distributed and presented to potential customers and users at communication events or during customer’s visits.

POP promotional plan

The Promotional Plan will provide tools for the marketing activities of the Community Development process. This will include the website, the customer leaflet, social media, press strategy, scientific publications policy, online material strategy, list of key events to be attended as well as a calendar of activities.
