How Financial Services Can Fuel Innovation with GPU Computing

The financial services and insurance sector is one of the most data-intensive industries in modern business. Unfortunately, that abundance of information has hindered the extraction of business value from data. However, improvements in technology can take data-related challenges that had, until recently, been considered impossible to overcome. Download the new white paper from Penguin Computing that highlights how financial services and insurance firms can benefit from GPU computing and spur innovation and future technological developments.
