The Most Underappreciated Element in Analytics

Presented by

Jim McHugh, VP & GM at Nvidia and Todd Mostak, Founder & CEO of MapD

About this talk

The vast majority of reviews on analytical applications are feature driven but this misses a critical component – usability. No matter how many chart types, how many governance features or what types of row level security is offered, if the application is slow, it won’t get used properly. Join Nvidia’s Jim McHugh and MapD’s Todd Mostak to talk about why speed, and in particular speed at scale, is the defining capability for analytics in the petabyte economy. The webinar will cover current research, the latest hardware advancements (NVIDIA P100 and DGX-1), and what techniques innovative companies are using to harness the parallel processing power of Nvidia GPUs. Jim McHugh is vice president and general manager at NVIDIA with over 25 years of experience as a marketing and business executive with startup, mid-sized, and high-profile companies. He currently leads DGX-1, the world’s first AI supercomputer in a box. Jim focuses on building a vision of organizational success and executing strategies to deliver computing solutions that benefit from GPUs in the data center. He has a deep knowledge and understanding of business drivers, market/customer dynamics, technology-centered products, and accelerated solutions.
