Benchmarking kdb+ on Raspberry Pi

24 May 2017 | Kdb+, kx, Raspberry Pi

Kx’s Director of IoT Solutions, Hugh Hyndman, recently put a Raspberry Pi 3 through its paces with a series of experiments to see how well kdb+ runs on this credit card-sized computer. Hugh’s experiments clearly demonstrated that kdb+ technology is remarkably fast and is also a perfect fit for edge computing, running on small appliances, including Industrial IoT gateways, hubs, equipment data acquisition units, and even on-board smart sensors. Combining its capabilities for event streaming, data filtering, and complex event processing rounds out the Kx technology offering positioning it to fit vertically and horizontally across all computing platforms.

IoT Analytics: How Kx can Supercharge your Legacy Systems

23 May 2017 | IoT, Kdb+, kx, Manufacturing

If your company is not already drowning in data now, it will be soon. Gartner Inc. forecasts that 8.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2017, up 31 percent from 2016, and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. In 2017, 6 million new things will be connected every day. Each one of them will transmit a stream of data, adding up to sensor data volumes that will dwarf today’s volumes. How your business uses this streaming data to compete in the market may determine its long-term success within the world of Industrial IoT.

Streaming Analytics with kdb+: Detecting card counters in Blackjack

17 May 2017 | ESP, Kdb+, kx

With the growth and acceleration of the Internet of Things (IoT), data collection is increasingly being performed by sensors and smart devices. Consuming and analyzing the massive amounts of data transmitted from sensing devices is considered the next Big Data challenge. A key problem in processing large quantities of data in real-time is the detection of event patterns, and this is why streaming analytics, also known as Event Stream Processing (ESP), is becoming a mainstream solution in IoT. Kx engineers Caolan Rafferty and Krishan Subherwal recently wrote a technical paper that highlights the use case of kdb+ with ESP.
