The computing power of a single machine keeps improving at an unabated rate. However, the increase of computing power no longer stems from increased clock-speed, but rather from extensive parallelisation inside the CPU including multi-and many-core architectures. Consequently, (re-)designing existing and new software, to efficiently and effectively use the entire available computing power of rapidly changing and ever more complex hardware has become an important science and engineering challenge. Mrunal Gawade addresses several challenges of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of parallel processing of analytical database queries on modern multi- and many-core systems.
