Message from the CEO Janet Lustgarten

Company news
Kx sales continue to grow in our core financial services market, both from new business and expansion within current users.

Beyond finance, Kx added a new oil and gas company in Brazil which is using kdb+ in a sensor application.

We also added to our list of OEM customers with CoreOne Technologies. Please see news here.

Kx team and community
Our New York sales office has led the company in results and we have again added to the team. Please welcome Jamie O'Mahony as a new pre-sales engineer.

Kx Community Meetups have expanded to 56 cities thanks to First Derivatives engineers worldwide that are helping us reach a greater audience.

We are offering more Kx free kdb+ workshops, both for customers and to the public. In June, over 100 people attended four days of workshops at New York University.

Arthur Whitney spoke at NYU and a First Derivatives User Group Meeting held at Morgan Stanley in April about his current research and development work.

Nick Psaris published a book, Q-Tips: Fast, Scalable and Maintainable Kdb+, in April. You can order a copy on Amazon.

Simon Garland was interviewed about Big Data and the financial services industry by ODBMS.org.

Looking forward
We are finding increasing interest in kdb+ from Internet companies and in the ad tech marketplace.

I would like to bring together people who have moved from the Financial sector into Technology firms. Please  if you fit this picture and/or find this dialogue interesting. We will have a gathering this summer or fall.
