KX and Microsoft partner to work together in helping companies scale up their real-time analytics and decision making proficiency...

KX, a data analysis software developer and vendor, announced it has become a Microsoft Partner. The two companies are working together to build a long-term technical and go-to-market roadmap to enable companies to rapidly scale up their real-time analytics and decision-making capabilities.

This announcement has followed the launch of KX Insights, which is a cloud-first platform for streaming analytics that fully leverages the benefits of cloud architecture natively to deliver fast, scalable real-time data insights via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

“KX Insights takes full advantage of the Microsoft Azure platform to deliver the optimal performance while maintaining interoperability with existing processes and data,” says Gerry Buggy, Chief Strategy Officer at KX.

“Together with Microsoft, we are offering a streaming analytics solution that is fast, secure, and flexible. It’s a game-changer for firms looking to drive operational and commercial performance through real-time analytics.”

KX Insights has been built to leverage vast amounts of real-time data in a scalable and easy-to-use manner. It has been benchmarked as the fastest in the industry according to independent STAC benchmarks. The platform also operates on Amazon AWS and Google Cloud, plus on all public and private clouds and on-premises too where required. 

Moving to the cloud 

Cloud computing is all about moving the essential systems and resources of your business to a remote server, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the move for many businesses. 

The recent 2021 Flexera State of the Cloud Report found that 92% of respondents reported having a multi-cloud strategy. 82% are taking a hybrid approach, combining the use of both public and private clouds. More than half of respondents use the cloud heavily and have reached the advanced cloud maturity level. 21% of organisations are at the intermediate maturity level, and 19% are beginners.

The report showed that many of the advantages delivered by the cloud have proven to be especially valuable as organisations adapted over the past year to meet the rapidly evolving needs of businesses.
