There are instances in IT where very large volumes of data have to be processed within a limited time period. Some will go for the option of throwing more hardware at the problem. That is an approach that will only get you so far because it neglects the vital aspect of parallelism.
It is essential to have a sound understanding of the actual situation in order to come up with better solutions. Perhaps it turns out that unnecessary, but resource-consuming calculations are being carried out. If this is the case, it is not necessarily obvious.
Sometimes all you need is better structures and algorithms and an adequate architecture to achieve improved performance.
More often than not, however, it turns out that only a targeted implementation of parallelism will bring about the required improvements. Developing for parallel computing requires a special level of care and awareness of the processes involved to make sure that the resulting application will not block itself or destroy its own data.
