Its latest GPU (graphics processing unit) technology has a far-reaching impact on how today’s enterprises manage, process and utilise data. The NVIDIA GPU platform also provides the ability to harness capabilities like accelerated analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), graphic virtualisation and virtual reality — allowing companies to gain deeper and richer insights about their businesses and the products they sell — tremendous advantages in today’s intensely competitive business environment. We are very excited to start a business journey with NVIDIA.”
