Kinetica accelerates Australian expansion with new partnerships

27 Feb 18

Kinetica has announced its formal launch into the Australian market partnered with a joint offering with XENON that is powered by NVIDIA, and IBM.

Together, they aim to deliver business intelligence (BI), artificial intelligence (AI), and deep learning solutions aimed at A/NZ enterprise and government customers.

“We live in the post big data era where enterprises are in a competitive race to move from the data-driven business to the data-powered business,” says Kinetica Asia Pacific vice president Joseph Lee

“This opportunity for creating transformational insight that drives differentiation across industries is critical. Working with partners such as XENON, NVIDIA, and IBM, Kinetica is creating an innovation ecosystem obsessed with helping businesses thrive in the Extreme Data Economy.”

NVIDIA Asia Pacific vice president Raymond Teh says, "Only 20% of Australian businesses are using accelerated analytics to detect emerging opportunities.” 

“This presents a massive opportunity for enterprises to use data as the key asset for creating competitive advantage and defining category leadership. Kinetica’s implementation of NVIDIA’s GPU technology helps provide enterprises with a real-time view of the business”

“Extreme data is transforming industries including government, telecommunications, financial services and retail in A/NZ,” says IBM Systems Australia and New Zealand country manager Philip MacLochlainn.

“Whether it is redefining the customer omnichannel, creating a 360-degree customer view, driving new business efficiencies, or using data to disrupt existing business models, data is at the centre of everything. This partnership arms the data-powered business with the ability to think outside the box and bring to market transformative offerings that elate customers.”

Kinetica is partnering with XENON to deliver its instant insight engine to complement the complete portfolio of XENON GPU-accelerated computing solutions including NVIDIA and IBM technologies.

This solution allows applications to run significantly faster, as Kinetica leverages thousands of small, efficient GPU cores that are well suited to performing repeated similar instructions in parallel.

XENON will also offer professional services together with a turnkey high-performance GPU computing appliance to include processing and storage along with Kinetica’s insight engine.

XENON founder and CEO Dragan Dimitrovici says, “Our partnership with Kinetica will allow our enterprise and public service customers across the A/NZ region to derive value and obtain actionable insights from their collected and real-time data.

“Our professional services and expertise will enable rapid and reliable integration of Kinetica software with best of breed high-performance computing technology.”
