In a sport where winning is measured in fractions of a second, the ability to make split-second decisions based on the analysis of real-time and historic data gives the team a real competitive advantage. Over the last 18 months, KX has become Alpine F1 Team’s holistic data science platform of choice, helping it spot and react to problems before they happen and identify opportunities to increase performance, all in milliseconds. The move to KX Insights will further help drive the team forward.
KX Insights provides a single point of access to data across the entire organisation, regardless of system, format or location. It takes advantage of hybrid cloud architecture to deliver fast, scalable real-time data insights without the added burden of infrastructure, complicated upgrades or the need to optimise for different cloud environments. With KX Insights, Alpine F1 Team can futureproof its cloud ecosystem and data infrastructure with its chosen cloud partner, Azure.
Dan Seal, Senior Vice President, KX said: “The deal for KX Insights reflects the desire of Alpine F1 Team to continue to apply KX’s performance for ingesting and analysing data. With flexible and affordable access to a high-performance analytics platform, KX Insights transforms operational performance and drives competitive differentiation.”
Nathan Sykes; IT, Business Systems and Data Science Director, Alpine F1 Team said: “KX Insights now puts us in the position where we can fully utilise the capabilities of our cloud infrastructure on Microsoft Azure. We can easily scale up and down as required while adding new data streams with ease. Add this to the powerful pipelines we already have access to in KX tools for ingesting data and visualising the results in fractions of a second. This will give us access to even more data allowing for even greater insights via analytics as well as taking our models to a greater complexity and accuracy.”
Mike Downey, tech lead for Sports, Microsoft said: “With billions of data points being captured at the track and at the factory, it is critical to have a cloud infrastructure that is agile and can enable tools such as KX Insights to deliver information in real-time. Alpine F1 Team’s use of Microsoft Azure is an example of enabling data driven decision making in a sport where every second matters.”
