- Brytlyt provides instant visual data analysis 1,000x faster than legacy systems
- Founder pioneered research into use of Graphics Processor Units (GPUs) for processing database operations. The result: visualisation tools including maps, charts and graphs for real-time analysis of large data sets
- Technology benefits telcos, retailers, logistics, healthcare and finance companies
- Series A from Amadeus Capital Partners with Finch Capital brings total funding to $6M
LONDON, May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Brytlyt, provider of the world's fastest data analytics and visualisation technology, has raised $4 million in Series A funding from global technology investor Amadeus Capital Partners and Finch Capital.
Until now, sectors with billion-record data sets such as telcos, retail and finance, have struggled to use their data to gain insights into company performance and improve customer experience and retention. This is because legacy systems were unable to handle ad-hoc analyses of such large data in real-time.
Brytlyt uses its patent-pending software and artificial intelligence (AI), combined with GPUs, to derive insights 1,000 times faster than legacy systems. It is the only company to combine AI and open source relational database PostgreSQL for GPU-powered data analytics.
Its flagship product, the SpotLyt visualisation tool, is designed for a responsive user experience. SpotLyt can handle complex queries on billions of rows of data, delivering results in milliseconds in the form of user-friendly graphics, maps and charts. With faster, clearer visual analysis, customers can interpret their end-users' behaviour in essential areas such as fraud prevention, attracting and retaining customers, network performance optimisation and risk management, supporting better decision-making and improved outcomes.
Brytlyt's founder and CEO, Richard Heyns said, "We are incredibly excited to gain support from Amadeus and Finch for the next phase of our company's growth. Analytics and data are growing exponentially and it's clear the future of processing must lie in GPUs, with their enhanced capacity for data crunching and deep learning."
Brytlyt works across any verticals with large data sets, including:
- Telcos - Many of the world's largest telco operators use Brytlyt to make fast and accurate decisions, optimise network performance, reduce customer churn and maximise subscriber monetisation.
- Finance - Brytlyt enables financial institutions to reduce fraud, manage risk and improve real-time market trading awareness.
- Healthcare - By working with Brytlyt, hospitals and research facilities reduce data processing time from days to minutes for a range of applications, from DNA sequencing to mitigating the effects of COVID-19, by observing user behaviour, tracking social distancing, managing the logistics of Personal Protective Equipment and contact tracing.
- Retail - Both "brick and mortar" and online retailers can work with Brytlyt to attract and retain customers with targeted pricing, promotions and optimised product assortment.
- Logistics - Data analysis is key for supply chain management and logistics across industries to optimise last mile scheduling and manage inventory.
Nick Kingsbury, Partner, Amadeus Capital Partners said, "The Brytlyt team has built very impressive high-performance database technology. Amadeus is pleased to be supporting Brytlyt as they invest in product innovation, enabling customers to extract real-time, actionable insights from massive data sets."
