13% of the planet’s Gross Domestic Product or $10 trillion USD annually is running on massively parallel data processors. How do 12 million world-wide users scale these transactions for real time operations on 840 exabytes (nearly a zettabyte) of data every year? Dan McCudden and Bonnie Holub will share stories of how they are implementing these systems, and helping customers harvest the value of their answers using their analytics. This will include a demo as well as a “behind the scenes” peek into tools they use for development.
