Using Control for Kx, organizations can rigorously manage their application landscape. They can instantly determine what processes are running and who owns them as well as their parameters and functionality settings. The development environment provides a framework for extending applications in a swift but controlled manner that promotes reuse, imposes standards and improves quality.


Control for Kx delivers centralized configuration management, consistent development patterns and a governance framework for release management and version control. It minimizes the likelihood of intermittent shortcomings such as letting anyone logon, allowing the database to be wiped, hogging resources or failing to track user commands.

The solution also includes a framework for developing new applications, to ensure that they perform the desired operation without compromising existing processes.


Control for Kx is a proven solution for ensuring that systems meet internal audit standards on application integrity, enabling visibility into what Kx Technology processes are currently running and a framework for imposing control on an operation. Kx provides both. In addition it provides a framework for extending applications in a swift but controlled manner.


Control for Kx provides comprehensive enterprise level functionality for deploying, configuring and running high performance, large volume data processing platforms:

  • Standardized logging and error handling

  • Process monitoring and coordination

  • Failover management



An analytics library complements the process library by providing a framework for developing and managing analytics through an open API that promotes reuse, enforces governance, streamlines maintenance and enables quicker time to market for new functionality. Analytics can be deployed into running processes, meaning no restarts, less disruption to services and providing a medium for rapid prototyping.
Kx Technology


The basis for Kx Technology is a unique integrated platform which includes a high-performance historical time-series columnar database called kdb+, an in-memory compute engine, and a real-time streaming processor all unified with an expressive query and programming language called q.

Designed from the start for extreme scale, and running on industry standard servers, the kdb+ database has been proven to solve complex problems faster than any of its competitors.


The kdb+ time-series database, at the core of Kx Technology, is renowned for its computational speed and performance, as well as the simplicity of its architecture for large-scale data analytics.
