Xignite Supports Financial Innovation Events in FinTech Hotbeds Silicon Valley, New York and London

Xignite, Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based financial market data, today announced their sponsorship of four demo-based FinTech conferences for developers of financial services applications at major technology hubs across the globe.

The events are being held in the Silicon Valley, the largest hub for FinTech startups, New York City and London - both of which are quickly becoming known as FinTech hotbeds. Financial technology or “FinTech” is one of the fastest growing areas for investment and is expected to grow to at least $6 billion by 2018, according to a recent study by Accenture.

“The FinTech revolution is largely being driven by cloud-based technologies which help FinTech startups cut costs and improve time to market,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO and Founder of Silicon Valley-based Xignite. “Xignite is powering the disruption of the financial services industry by providing entrepreneurs with easy-to-integrate and affordable financial data APIs.”

Xignite’s new sponsorships include:

  • The FinTech Startups Demo Day is a New York Meetup event hosted by Empire Startups. Young companies will be given five minutes to demonstrate their app. Xignite client Prudena is one of the companies presenting. Prudena is a web-based financial risk-management portal targeted to investors and financial educators and was started by Charlie Strout, founder of New York-based Seven Shadow LLC.
  • FinTech Open Mic & Demo Evening, to be held in San Francisco, is organized by London-based FinTech entrepreneur Eddie George. The event schedule will include a mixture of skype-ins, presentations, fireside chats and networking.
  • London FinTech Startups, run by TechMeetups, targets FinTech entrepreneurs, developers and “wantrepreneaurs” that are focusing on technologies ranging from capital markets to personal financial management tools.
  • FinDEVr will showcase tools, platforms, and APIs that are driving the FinTech revolution. Xignite will co-host a session for developers with partner Yodlee and discuss the use of APIs to assist developers with their market data needs. This event will take place in San Francisco.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
