Big Data Business Advantage with GPUs and FPGAs for Real-time Ingest Processing

6:00 PM to 9:30 PM

University of Colorado Denver - Wednesday June 25, 2014 @ 6:00pm MDT


All too often we see critical data dumped into a “Data Lake” causing the data waters to stagnate and become a “Data Swamp”. We have found that many data transformation, quality, and security processes can be addressed a priori on ingest to enhance goodness and improve accessibility to the data. Data can still be stored in raw form if desired but this processing on ingest can unlock operational effectiveness and competitive advantage by integrating fresh and historical data and enable the full potential of the data. We will discuss the underpinnings of heterogeneous computing architectures – especially GPU/CPU/FPGA systems, their use as low-latency / high-throughput stream processing engines as they relate to real-time requirements, review business use cases unlocked with these architectures, and explore future applications.
