Magnitude Software Introduces Game Changing Data Connectivity Platform with the Release of Magnitude Gateway Embedded 1.1

Subsidiary Simba’s Streamlined Universal Data Access for Software Vendors Delivers a Single Integration, Unified Maintenance and Enhanced User Interface

Austin, TX – July 31, 2019 – Magnitude Software, Inc., a leader in delivering unified application data management to global organizations and its subsidiary, Simba, today announced the release of Magnitude Gateway Embedded 1.1, the next-generation universal data connectivity platform designed for software providers and developers. Magnitude Gateway Embedded 1.1 offers advanced capabilities to dramatically reduce the burden of driver maintenance to allow software vendors to distribute and maintain access to multiple data sources. A rich API provides seamless integration between application workflows and Magnitude Gateway.

“Software companies are burdened with escalating data connectivity costs and many are struggling to keep pace with the vast growth and evolution of data sources across cloud, on-premises and hybrid deployments,” said Tony Fisher, General Manager, Magnitude Connectivity. “With the release of Magnitude Gateway Embedded 1.1, Magnitude’s Simba team made integration seamless with a single universal driver to access all data sources, enabling software vendors to get products to market even faster with simpler development, hands-off configuration and streamlined maintenance.”

The platform Magnitude Gateway Embedded, was developed for software companies to give customers real-time access to many data sources so business users can gain insights faster and easier—from within the vendor’s application or by delivering the vendor’s application data to other systems. Specifically, the platform has been designed to streamline distribution, deployment, configuration and maintenance processes. Furthermore, Magnitude Gateway’s user interface advantage means that developers do not have to spend time and money building their own customer interface or, alternatively, use Magnitude Gateway’s rich API to provide a tight integration with their application’s workflows.

“In all the enterprise applications I’ve worked on, maintaining connectivity to data sources has always been costly, time consuming and, frankly, a burden,” said Donald Farmer, Principal at TreeHive Strategy. “Magnitude’s Simba team is driving the data connectivity industry forward with its Magnitude Gateway offering. They radically simplify access to the growing array of applications and data sources in cloud and hybrid environments. This means that software vendors can not only provision their customers with easy access to multiple data sources, they can also update connectivity features outside their product release cycles.”

Key software vendor benefits of Magnitude Gateway Embedded 1.1 platform include:

  • Offload data connectivity, development, distribution, maintenance and support while reducing costs.
  • Broaden target market with the richest set of data connectivity capabilities.
  • Deliver new connectivity to users independently of driver release cycle.
  • Incorporate enriched business data directly into your own solution — for self-service access to data by business users.
  • Dramatically enhance user experience, while simplifying data connectivity provisioning and management.
  • Provide a tight integration with your application’s workflows using Magnitude Gateway’s API.

Magnitude Gateway is built by the Simba team, recognized by customers and industry analysts as the de facto standard for innovative data access and data integration software and services. All leaders in the Gartner BI Magic Quadrant depend on Simba solutions.

kx-simba-odbc-driver

Kx Offers Magnitude Simba-developed ODBC Connectivity for kdb+

Partnership allows Kx customers to deploy their data to a broader range of applications.

Austin, TX – April 11, 2019: Kx, a division of First Derivatives plc, and Magnitude Software today announced the release of a new driver to enhance Kx’s support for accessing large volumes of external enterprise data via the industry-standard ODBC. Using the Magnitude Simba ODBC driver, custom-built for the kdb+ time-series database, kdb+ users will now have a high-performance interface to seamlessly connect to third-party business intelligence tools such as Tableau, Microsoft Power BI and Excel, as well as other data visualization applications.

Kdb+ is both an in-memory and on disk database with a robust built-in query language, q, and a complete real-time streaming architecture. Recognized for its simplicity and performance, kdb+ is increasingly being used in machine learning and other applications, which are integrated with other software tools. Facilitating fast and easy connectivity was a key motivation for the collaboration between Magnitude Simba and Kx.

For over two decades Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) has been the standard method for applications to interact with external data. Developed by Microsoft and Simba Technologies in the early 90’s, the designers of ODBC aimed to make it easier for users to talk to multiple different databases and operating systems. Over the years ODBC has become the database connectivity standard.

The objective of the Kx and Magnitude Simba partnership is to provide kdb+ customers with a robust ODBC interface to external data directly from kdb+ using a fully featured and certified connector. This ODBC connector can replace or complement existing ODBC connectors from Kx that customers have in place. The new kdb+/ODBC driver is simple to deploy and widely supported, which will further serve to encourage the use of kdb+ by a greater universe of developers.

“The partnership with Kx marks the first Simba driver connecting to a high performance in-memory and on-disk software time-series database,” said Tony Fisher, General Manager of Magnitude Connectivity and the Simba business. “During development, Simba’s team collaborated with developers at Kx and with Kx customers to gather direct feedback regarding what users would like to see in a new ODBC driver.”

Mark Sykes, Group CTO of First Derivatives and COO of Kx, commented: “Many of our customers are using ODBC connectors to extract kdb+ data for their standard visualization tools or spreadsheets. We want to offer them an ODBC/kdb+ driver that would increase the robustness, stability and supportability of this interface. Working with the Simba team allowed us to not only offer a commercially supported solution, but also gives users the ability to take advantage of a kdb+ interface, Tableau TDVT (Tableau Datasource Verification Tool) certified.”

About Kx

Kx is a division of FD, a global technology provider with 20 years of experience working with some of the world’s largest finance, technology, retail, pharma, manufacturing and energy institutions. Kx technology, incorporating the kdb+ time-series database, is a leader in high-performance, in-memory computing, streaming analytics and operational intelligence. Kx delivers the best possible performance and flexibility for high-volume, data-intensive analytics and applications across multiple industries. The Group operates from 14 offices across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, including its headquarters in Newry, and employs more than 2,600 people worldwide.
