This 'Trends Session' will bring executives up to date with developments in the computer processor and software industry that will enable their business applications to run significantly faster. With so many disruptive and revolutionary changes to the processor industry, such as the widespread adoption of heterogeneous parallel processors (GPUs, FPGAs, and Intel Xeon Phis™), you need to become aware of what is already happening and the trends to leverage and plan for. Strategic overviews of what is coming next that you as a senior IT/C-Level executive need to know and how you can leverage it. As more companies see the need for big data and data science,the need for faster speeds and lower energy costs are on the top of mind for CEO's, CIO's, CTO's and all end users of the data analysis - Business Development, Sales, Marketing, Actuaries, Product Development, etc.

Get answers to questions such as:

  1. Can parallel heterogeneous computing work for my business applications, and if so, how?
  2. How much faster will heterogeneous computing make our business applications?
  3. How much would we save in energy costs by moving to heterogeneous computing in our data centers?
  4. Which applications are 'made for' parallel computing?
