ABOUT Kx

Kx was founded in 1993 by Arthur Whitney and Janet Lustgarten to address a simple problem: the inability of traditional relational database technology to keep up with escalating volumes of data. This problem is even more acute today, as data records already number in the trillions and are escalating exponentially. Businesses however, need immediate access to real-time and historical data for a whole range of applications. From research through trading, smart meter data analysis, web site analytics, customer behaviours and a plethora of other applications, all need a high-velocity analytics platform.

Since the company’s inception, Kx’s singular goal has been to provide its customers with the fastest, most efficient, and most flexible tools for processing real-time and historical data. This focus has enabled us to become the worldwide leader in high-volume, high-performance databases.

Markets Media: Corralling ‘Big Data’

13 Dec 2016 | finance, Kdb+, kx, MiFID II

Kx’s DaaS expert Dan Seal is quoted in the latest edition of Markets Media in Corralling ‘Big Data,’ the third in their three-part series on The New Age of Analytics. Terry Flanagan of Markets Media writes: “The value proposition of making the leap from possession to utilization [of big data] is twofold. One, a proper harnessing of big data complies with increasingly ponderous and data-hungry financial regulation, most prominently Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II. Two, big data can be used to improve pre-trade, at-trade and post-trade analysis, and by extension, trading performance.”
