A roundup of our best content and product updates

The best proof of Quix’s product, besides trying it yourself, is the inside story of how one of our customers solved a major business problem. In this month’s edition of our newsletter, we highlight two major case studies.

First, how did a race-winning telemetry company use Quix to increase performance and resiliency? This case study features our customer Control, which was able to reduce hands-on time for its engineers while ensuring peak connectivity from anywhere on the racetrack. I think the most impressive aspect of this use case is the fact that we delivered 82 machine learning models in just two weeks’ time.

Second, take a deep dive into the business strategy behind usage-based billing, which delivers maximum value for both customers and companies. It’s no wonder this pricing model is rapidly replacing subscription models in SaaS and beyond. My colleague Patrick Mira Pedrol, our Head of Software, invested months in this technical project for Quix and gives you the all-access tour in his deeply technical post.

But maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. You might be wondering about this whole data stream processing revolution, too. And truth be told, it can be a bit scary — especially since it was once solely the domain of big tech companies and their army of infrastructure engineers.

So in addition to case studies, we’re reporting on some fantastic use cases in stream processing (regardless of whether they use Quix to make it easier). Stream processing helps organizations:

Here’s a sample of the real business gains these organizations reported:
