Silverhook Racing founder Nigel Hook and ARL CEO Ian Taylor took to the stage at IBM Interconnect 2015 in Las Vegas last week, with an update on our real-time Powerboat application. Built in 3 weeks last year, and a great example of cloud collaboration between 5 companies spread all around the globe, the application harnesses the "data ocean" as powerboats race through the real one. Real time analysis is essential to the SilverHook operation - if there’s a problem with an engine during racing the team need to deal with it immediately, or the engine could blow up.
