Intel Seizes Market Opportunity with Parallel Studio
SANTA CRUZ, CA, June 9, 2009 – Evans Data Corp today announced Evans Data Market Alert, a new service that examines major events or offerings that impact the software development landscape. The first in the series examines Intel’s recently released Parallel Studio which brings parallel programming into the mainstream Windows environment by providing multi-threading tools for Visual Studio users. Parallel Studio provides a C/C++ compiler with pre-threaded libraries that developers can use right out of the box, plus a performance analyzer, and a debugger with memory and thread error checker. It works with Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 so developers can start parallel programming for Windows today.
"This is a highly strategic move for Intel," said Janel Garvin, Founder of Evans Data. "Multicore processors are a current reality for most computer users, but multi-threaded applications that take advantage of their capabilities are a rarity – mostly because of the complexity of writing them. Intel has suddenly shifted the software development landscape with the release of tools that allow the large universe of Visual Studio users to exploit the performance and scaling opportunities inherent in multicore processors."
The first Evans Data Market Alert focuses on Parallel Studio and includes data from the most recent Evans Data Global Development Survey of over 1200 developers. The Evans Data Market Alert series will be published quarterly and will focus on products or events that make a significant difference in software development. The first Market Alert publication is available for free download at this link: http://www.evansdata.com/research/market_alerts.php
