We are delighted to be recognized by the Business Intelligence Group for our pioneering work with GPU databases and visualization," noted Todd Mostak, Founder and CEO of MapD. "The data challenges facing organizations today demand that they revisit their analytical approach and what compute platform they choose. We are excited to be at the forefront of the GPU revolution and see this award as further validation of our team's tireless efforts to build the world's fastest data exploration platform."
"Differentiation is a common theme among many of our winners, and MapD's approach to using GPUs for visual analytics certainly fits that description," said Russ Fordyce, Managing Director of the Business Intelligence Group. "Enterprises are constantly seeking ways to be more responsive and agile for their customers and MapD provides significant capabilities in that regard. Like all of the winning companies - they have distinguished themselves from their competitive set and we are pleased to recognize them for this accomplishment."
MapD is a next-generation database and visualization layer that harnesses the parallel power of GPUs to explore multi-billion row datasets in milliseconds.
By combining a purpose-built GPU database with a powerful visualization layer, MapD is able to deliver immersive, instantaneous analytics on data sets previously considered too large to explore interactively.
The speed and scope of MapD's solutions enable organizations to compete more effectively, to solve more complex problems and to manage operational risk more comprehensively.
