What is Parallel Processing?
I was teaching in Africa for a second time, and one of the students in my previous class said, "Tom, you don't have a slide about the parallel processing laundry mat. That example taught me more about data warehousing than anything I ever learned."
Watch the video and understand parallel processing.
