Kx delivers the best possible performance and flexibility for high-volume, data-
intensive analytics, and applications across multiple industries. FD’s distinct competitive advantage derives from its unique combination of knowledge of financial markets and expertise in financial services technologies.

This coupled with the company’s blend of core technology, pool of highly-trained consultants, developer tools and its investment in recruitment and world -class in-house training sets it apart from the competition in helping clients make real-time decisions on vast quantities of streaming and historical data.

Kx technology is built on a proprietary software platform called kdb+.

As a vector-based technology, Kx has the ability to query very large scale datasets quickly and efficiently. Often described by programmers as “elegant,” kdb+ incorporates the ability to analyze streaming, real-time and historical data in one system, unlike any other competing product.
Our suite of products and solutions incorporate thousands of man-years’ worth of knowledge by Kx engineers who have been building large-scale enterprise systems at global corporations for over 20 years. Leveraging this knowledge base, and the ability of kdb+ to provide a high-performance data engine and data warehouse, distinguishes all of our offerings.
