Unlike other solutions that patch together various data ingestion and analytics products, KX Streaming Analytics uniquely combines historic and real-time data to deliver actionable insights for critical business decisions. It is built on kdb+, an ultra-high-performance time-series database designed for rapid analytics on large-scale datasets in motion and at rest. With KX, organizations across industry sectors including financial markets, automotive, manufacturing, and telecommunications can integrate streaming analytics into their business processes and applications to achieve high-performance data-driven decision making.

In March of this year, KX launched KX Insights, a cloud-first platform for streaming analytics that has been certified by KX to run natively on all major hyperscale cloud providers including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. KX Insights fully leverages the benefits of cloud architecture natively to deliver fast, scalable real-time data insights without the added burden of infrastructure, complicated upgrades or the need to optimize for different cloud environments.
