K2View, a leading provider of real-time, distributed data management solutions, today announced that it has received a 451 Firestarter award from leading technology research and advisory firm 451 Research, recognizing the company’s innovative contribution within the technology industry.
451 Research’s Firestarter program recognizes exceptional innovation within the information technology industry. Introduced in 2018, and awarded quarterly, the program is exclusively analyst-led, allowing its team of technology and market experts to highlight organizations they believe are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the technology market.
K2View products use a fundamentally new approach to data management – the patented micro-database – to deliver 360-degree data access around what matters most to your business, whether that be a customer, product, order, sensor, and more. By organizing data around a specific entity, instead of an application or in a data lake, K2View provides secure, holistic, and real-time access to data, all delivered via micro- or web-services.
“Being recognized as a 451 Firestarter recognizes how K2View is innovating and fundamentally shifting the data management industry,” said Nick Lazzaro, CEO of K2View. “K2View began as an exploration of what’s possible when you approach well-known problems from a completely fresh perspective. By rethinking how data can be accessed, secured, and managed, we’ve been able to innovate and deliver products that deliver holistic data, securely and in real time.”
“451 Research built its reputation on helping clients understand innovation in the technology industry, and the Firestarters program is continued demonstration of this,” said Paige Bartley, 451 Research. “Approaches from companies like K2View demonstrate the necessary evolution of the IT industry’s offerings to drive meaningful business outcomes and deserve additional recognition. By using novel micro-database architecture and organizing data around any business-defined concept – not just customer – K2View breaks down silos across an enormous number of data-consuming applications: all while using a small commodity hardware footprint and operating functionally in real time.”
