Top 10 Hedge Fund
Facing multiple challenges with its existing analytics platform, the company needed more speed and flexibility from the platform, which wasn’t keeping up with current business needs. The legacy Microsoft SQL Server and KDB proprietary database for time-series Trades and Quotes (TAQ) data was unable to meet critical performance requirements. The new solution needed to leverage standard SQL, standard tools for seamless analytics by existing users and to support a hybrid environment, with the ability to deploy both in the cloud and on-premises. After evaluating both KDB and SQL Server upgrades, the hedge fund selected Yellowbrick for its new analytical platform. Yellowbrick proved to be the only solution which met requirements for the Research team powering through billions of records in minutes.
