June 24, 2014 | Aqumin Launches AWS Test Drive Environment for Visual Landscapes

Houston based, Aqumin LLC launched Amazon’s AWS Test Drive sandbox for its Visual Landscape Technology.  Test Drive is a platform developed by Amazon Web Services to enable rapid provisioning and deployment of a private sandbox environment.  Users can test drive an example of Aqumin’s software in action connected to real time financial market data and interact with thousands of securities instantly.  Platform developers can explore the Aqumin landscapes to stimulate ideas about where the technology can be leveraged in their own applications to provide visual insight into public and proprietary data.

Aqumin technology is used to create and embed fully interactive, 3D visual data landscapes into existing platforms or new applications. Viewing and understanding large, moving data has never been easier. Aqumin landscapes connect to multiple real time data sources and allow users to view and interact with hundreds of thousands of multi-variable entities on one screen to spot opportunities, overlay positions, and identify patterns and risk faster. Users can drill up and down through data and connect to action points directly from the landscape environment. Aqumin’s Interactive Data Landscapes bring a larger field of vision and unique insight into real-time intraday activity and historical trends.  Big Data is revealed in context, for fast pattern recognition and data relationship extractions. 

 “Clients and partners utilize Aqumin technology in Financial Services, Process Control, and other verticals where understanding large moving data quickly is vital. Aqumin is excited to be launching a Test Drive environment on AWS that will enable users to experiment with Aqumin’s visual data landscapes with an eye toward incorporating landscape technology into their own applications.  Web delivery and server side rendering is an important step for Aqumin in meeting client and partner requirements for delivery across devices. Clients will now have more options to gain visual insight into their data by leveraging the storage, processing, and delivery efficiencies of AWS Redshift, s3, and EC2.” said Adam Golla, Aqumin EVP, Business Development.,

Aqumin partnered with Calgary Scientific and leveraged their PureWeb technology to cloud-enable their Visual Landscape solution.

December 9, 2013 | Xenomorph Integrates Aqumin AlphaVision into TimeScape

Xenomorph, the analytics and data management solutions provider to global financial institutions, announced today that it has integrated Aqumin’s AlphaVision™ visual landscape environment with Xenomorph’s TimeScape.

The partnership enables users to define, analyze and store data as interactive three-dimensional (3-D) landscapes based on multi-sourced data and analytics in TimeScape. Using the capabilities of AlphaVision™, users can visualize and interpret large, multi-dimensional datasets and quickly identify points or regions of particular interest. Leveraging the Aqumin SDK, the integration also enables users to navigate and drill down from points on a landscape directly to further visual landscapes, or back to the specific dataset in TimeScape.

“Aqumin’s 3-D visual landscapes offer new levels of data insight and interactivity that are directly applicable to all areas of trade, risk and data quality analysis,” said Brian Sentance, Chief Executive Officer, Xenomorph. “Illustrating the multi-dimensional capabilities of AlphaVision™, one of the TimeScape data quality landscapes can show color indicating the number of flat spots, base area proportional to the data spikes observed and height relating to the number of gaps in the data, for each instrument’s price or rate history. A user can start with a large instrument universe and quickly zoom in to a particular instrument, and optionally select to see further visualizations along any metric of interest. We have also built other examples looking at index analysis, performance attribution and price behavior during market crashes. “

“Integrating Xenomorph TimeScape’s multi-sourced data and analytics management with our AlphaVision™ solution is an extremely powerful combination,” commented Michael Zeitlin, Chief Executive Officer, Aqumin. “In a time where regulatory and compliance requirements are driving clients to consume and manage more and more data, the combination of TimeScape with the visual landscape capabilities of AlphaVision™ enables clients to identify data issues and opportunities faster than ever before.”
