Palo Alto (6 Dec 2005) – Kx Systems, leader
in high-performance databases and timeseries analysis, today announced that the
proprietary trading division of Baden-Württemberg Bank (BW-Bank) has selected
kdb+tick to enhance their multi-asset trading capabilities by adding realtime
data capture and complex analytics.

“No other database vendor was able to provide us with the complete combination
of capabilities that Kx could,” said Christoph Metzger, BW-Bank. “We
trade equities, futures and options in multiple markets. To do this well, we needed
to capture data and run complex analytics in realtime, research historical data
without delays and set up alarms and signals for tighter control of our trades.
kdb+tick provided all of these features enabling us to make better trade decisions
and satisfy all of our compliance requirements.”

Kdb+tick layers on top of the kdb+ database to capture, manage and analyze millions
of streaming ticks as well as terabytes of historical tick data – with realtime
results. Kdb+tick can process one million events per second, keeping up with peak
volumes on any exchange. By combining streaming and historical data in a single
database there’s no need to discard in-memory data at the end of the day. Users
can write sophisticated time-series analytics for in-memory and historical data
and connecting to a new data feed takes only a short amount of time.

“Trading multiple asset classes in different countries
requires an instant, accurate and simultaneous view of global markets,” said Arthur
Whitney, Kx CEO. “kdb+tick
provides traders with this crucial snapshot, giving BW-Bank a competitive advantage
and a way to satisfy their regulatory requirements.”
