Modern business is fluid.  Critical business events must be responded to when they occur.  Delays mean lost opportunities and sub-optimal outcomes.  Modern analytics must be as agile as the business itself.

The days of looking at your data in the rear-view mirror are coming to an end.  We are at the dawn of a new analytic revolution:  the real-time database.  

Millisecond latency is the new analytic performance standard.  A new class of GPU-accelerated databases enable this level of performance.  GPU-accelerated databases are over 100x more performant than even the “fastest” in-memory data stores. 

GPU-accelerated databases can provide extreme levels of scalability without negative performance impacts.  They are also easy to implement; thanks to their use of ANSI-standard SQL and hybrid visualization capabilities.  This makes them particularly attractive for some of the most demanding analytic tasks; like scoring of predictive models, and geospatial visualizations.

Join Amit Vij from Kinetica to learn how GPU-accelerated databases can enable real-time businesses.
