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.

First Women: Britain’s productivity puzzle can be solved with a smart technology plan

12 May 2017 | Kdb+, kx, Kx Technology Fund

Shannon Jones of Kx writes in First Women magazine about using technology to solve Britain’s productivity problem: “Businesses should increasingly seek to partner with technology experts who can assist them in not only getting the best from their current resources, but in introducing new ways of working, enabling them to improve processes, and crucially, work smarter. Last summer, Kx partnered with life sciences center The Earlham Institute to study crop growth patterns, developing a completely new approach to analytical processing in bioscience. Continuing these types of projects and collaborating to bring about change will be crucial in helping the UK to remain globally competitive in the realm of productivity.”
