MapD wants everyone to be curious about data and easily explore hypotheses – to ask question upon question, without curiosity-defeating latency. We designed a platform that returns instant big data query results and interactive visualizations - removing the technology obstacles to immersive data exploration - so that users can feel at one with their data.
MapD built the first ever open source SQL engine to harness GPU computing for analytics. Designed for maximum performance, the MapD SQL engine dynamically compiles SQL to run across multiple GPUs and CPUs. This means that MapD is often orders-of-magnitude faster than other systems, allowing users to get answers from their data without waiting.
MapD eliminates the divide between traditional business intelligence (BI) and geographic information system (GIS), making location intelligence a first-class citizen of big data analytics. Geospatial analysts are now unbounded in the volumes of data they can analyze, while business analysts can access new location-insights.
