    Presenting Kx Training
    & Consulting Services

     

    Kx counts the top ten global investment banks among its customers and is now being adopted across other sectors including utilities, telco, oil and gas, manufacturing, that need the capability to process vast data volumes and deliver high-speed analytics. On-going engagement with these customers has led to the development of a range of services that now include consulting services, architectural and design workshops, customised training, support and multi-location staff augmentation.

    Training Courses & Workshops

    We offer four public kdb+ Training courses and custom on-site courses in the q language and kdb+ database.

    Our public training courses are run over three days and our custom courses can be tailored to meet individual needs and requirements. Course content can be derived from our standard modules or bespoke topics at the client’s request. All our trainers are senior kdb+ technologists with years of experience designing, implementing and supporting Kx based systems for our clients.

    After attending any of the training courses participants have full access to our premium support service with access to kdb+ engineers on a 24/7 basis for three months ensuring attendees continue to benefit from our knowledge even after course completion.

    As we monitor the ongoing global situation regarding COVID-19, we are currently hosting  our workshops and training online so that we continue to deliver our training to the Kx Community worldwide.

    Kdb+ Fundamentals

    An introductory course about kdb+ and the principles of vector programming. Developers who complete this course will be fully able to use kdb+ to manage data from multiple data sources and interact with both in memory and on disk kdb+ installations.

    Upcoming kdb+ Training Courses

    As we monitor the ongoing global situation regarding COVID-19, we have decided to host our workshops and training on a digital platform to continue to deliver our training to the Kx Community worldwide.

    Near Shore Centre of Excellence

    Kx provides a Centre of Excellence service that covers the full software development life-cycle (“SDLC”) from requirements gathering, design, development, testing, deployment through to post-delivery support and maintenance. By assembling experts in each of these areas it taps their collective knowledge and experience to deliver superior quality software and support. It incorporates formal project management methodologies and best practice in terms of account management and governance. Moreover, by offering its COE services on a reduced-cost, Near Shore basis it provides further saving across the full spectrum of recruitment, training, IT infrastructure, office space, career planning, HR and management overhead.

    Near Shore Centre of Excellence Case Study

    Our client wished to establish a cost effective centre of excellence for kdb+ development and production support to cater for the millions of customer queries sent on a 24/7 basis. This required comprehensive project management skills and in-depth product knowledge, along with expert development skills in technologies such as Shell scripting, UNIX, Perl and Java as well as vast experience using project management tools like JIRA, source code repositories like Perforce, robust regression testing and software release procedures. The service was subsequently extended to other functional groups based on the success of the initial project.

     

    What we did:

    • Built a dedicated team, including both on-site and Near Shore team leads that manage a group of highly skilled developers
    • Formalized a Service Level Agreement and Business Continuity Plan.
    • Established a secure technological and Near Shore office infrastructure, meeting the highest facility standards.
    • Ongoing, intensive training of team members on the client’s methodology, development framework and other company practices.

    • Proximity – Near Shore services facilitate physical and financial ease in travelling to the Near Shore location for training.
    • Reduce the dependency upon internal resources.
