Tech deal a 'win' for Newry based First Derivatives
Northern Ireland software giant First Derivatives has struck a deal with a FTSE 100 gaming company for the use of its Kx technology.
Breaking into the retail analytics sector is a "win" for the Newry-based firm as it continues to diversify the markets for its data analytics services.
The deal between the two companies was sealed following a successful proof of concept in which Kx provided data that showed a significant return on investment in comparison to traditional solutions.
First Derivatives chief Brian Conlon said the contract win is a powerful endorsement of the group's technology. The FTSE 100 firm processes billions of transactions per day and has over four million customers.
