Developer Ian Boyd recently wrote an excellent overview of kdb+tick on the AquaQ blog.

kdb+tick is an in-memory and on-disk database system which facilitates the streaming, capture and storage of high-speed real-time data for immediate analysis. It will also automatically historicise the data. That sounds great, right? The advantages that this type of system can bring a business in any sector are easy to imagine.

If you want to meet Ronan Pairceir of AquaQ and you are in the New York City region, come to the next Kx Community NYC Meetup, Dec. 9.

Collaboration with Kx and Thomson Reuters using kdb+

The Power of Collaboration: Kx and Thomson Reuters

What defines a great collaboration? Kx’s Chief Revenue Officer Pat Brazel writes in this blog about our current Kx and Thomson Reuters partnership. Over the past 12 months Kx and Thomson Reuters’ domain experts, and engineers have jumped into the Velocity Analytics 8 product development process with good faith and real enthusiasm. Out of that has come a product delivery, roadmap and sales strategy that both companies are proud of. To both firms credit, we seem to have avoided the dreaded “not-invented-here” syndrome. Both companies have brought the best of their technologies together to create a product which builds on, and exceeds, the foundation on which it is built.
