The STAC Benchmark Council focuses on areas where new technology has great potential to solve strategic problems--that is, where innovations intersect important business workloads. These workloads tend to be challenging from an engineering perspective, often because high performance is a core requirement.
Council participants come at these problems from the perspectives of several technical disciplines. These perspectives create meaningful dialog and useful benchmarks.
