SpotLyt – an analytics workbench without compromise

23rd September 2019 by Alex Harper

In today’s world of big data and real-time analytics, visualisation tools struggle to meet the demands of customers who want to unlock the full potential of their data. This is forcing data analysts to compromise for their visualisation tool to perform well. At Brytlyt we don’t believe in compromise, we believe in finding solutions. Our solution is called SpotLyt.

After discovering that many commercially available products couldn’t keep up with the speed of our GPU database, we realised they we had to build our own visualisation tool. SpotLyt was born, a next-generation visualisation workbench, and you don’t even need to use it with GPU acceleration to see the benefits.

Richard Heyns, CEO and Founder of Brytlyt, says “Customers are finding their visualisation tools respond slowly if their data is big or complex. We decided to build a tool that works for you, not the other way around. Keep your massive dataset, fill the dashboard with all the charts you desire and have as many complex joins and queries as you please. SpotLyt has been fine-tuned and optimised so our users have an incredibly responsive experience, that no other vendors can match.”

Brytlyt’s uncompromising approach is rapidly gaining traction with customers who are adopting SpotLyt as their go-to analytics tool. Highlights of SpotLyt’s capabilities are:

Beautiful charting

Dashboards and worksheets allow users to see all their charts together. There is powerful geospatial mapping that is tightly integrated with aggregated information, shown in bar charts, line charts, heat maps and much more.

Full SQL editor

SpotLyt has a very powerful SQL editor to interact with Brytlyt’s PostgreSQL database. Users can write stored procedures, navigate database objects, create views and tables and managed the database instance.

Jupyter Notebooks

SpotLyt is directly integrated into Jupyter notebook. Jupyter notebooks are used to write and execute python and other code directly from the browser.

Interactive geospatial analytics

In contrast to other vendors, in SpotLyt rendering of mapping tiles is done by GPU on the database. As a result, SpotLyt can do exciting things with maps, which has massive appeal to sectors such as telcos, retail, oil & gas, logistics and location-based advertising.

Front-end scripting

Small coding snippets create controls and capture user behavior and events to dynamically change what is displayed on dashboards.

Back-end scripting

SpotLyt uses stored procedures, giving significant flexibility on the database side and enables users to dynamically work with the data.
