Open Parallel® offers Solutions for the Data Science Revolution

As data sets become larger and information requirements are time and privacy sensitive, making smarter use of information becomes more complex and outside the core focus of non-specialised organisations.

Applications are demanding more capacity and process flexibility as social networking, sensor-networks, scientific research, business models, financial engineering and economic modelling all make big data a common requirement for Decision Support

Through our consulting and project work our aim is to make high-performance data intensive computing simple for our customers. In a world where every organisation today is a software company, you need to be able to deliver the best solutions to your clients, faster than your competitors, with the highest standards.

Open Parallel is the natural destination of companies, organisations and major corporations that need exceptional talent to explore, develop, and test radical ideas.
