Leading-edge data analytics and visualization enable breakthrough science on Argonne's Blue Gene/P

Most science applications that run on large-scale systems like the IBM Blue Gene/P Intrepid at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility generate huge volumes of data that represent the results of the calculations. To understand those results after the run has completed, it is essential to rapidly explore the output data and convert it to a visual representation.
