Writing parallel programs is not a simple task. Especially, writing parallel programs for a heterogeneous computing environment is even more difficult. Programs written in different programming languages are required to run on different platforms with different operating systems. In this paper, a parallel processing model is presented to allow programmers to write the programs for parallelism in a heterogeneous computing environment. The programs can be written in a sequential programming language that the programmers are familiar with and feel comfortable to write. The model facilitates implicit parallelism and the implementation of the parallelism will be automatically realized in the model. The details of parallelism are hidden from the programmers, thus the programmers can focus on the details of business logics.
