If you have ever parallelized a serial program, you know how tricky it can be to answer these questions! With the move to multi-core processors, the need to parallelize software is becoming somewhat inevitable. Those who chose to continue to ship serial code are potentially exposing themselves to obsolescence. Parallelization is becoming essential for survival in this tough marketplace.
Parallel Advisor Lite is a parallel modeler for your serial application – you would use this tool to explore or model parallel possibilities while keeping your application serial. This is important because a parallel modeler lets you continue to use your existing test system and debugging methods as you modify your application to resolve data access issues.
