Xignite Resets the Standard for Financial API Ease of Use

Xignite Inc., the leading provider of market data cloud services, has launched a new Market Data Cloud API catalog, which provides access to thousands of real-time, historical and reference market data APIs from Xignite’s platform partners including NASDAQ, NYSE Technologies, CME Group, and Direct Edge. The catalog is available now on the redesigned www.xignite.com website.

Xignite’s platform partners are leveraging the Xignite Market Data Distribution solution, which allows for private-labeled delivery of market data through on-demand APIs. The service helps exchanges, over-the-counter (OTC) brokers, multi-lateral trading facilities and data vendors decrease the expense and complexity of integrating market data needed for custom-built applications and provides flexibility to access and purchase only the content they require.

The Market Data Cloud API catalog features the following products:

The new website design offers an enhanced user interface making it easier for developers and business analysts to work with financial APIs and speed time to market for the development of new apps.

Additional new platform features include:

  • Intuitive dynamic API URL construction using color-coded input parameters and output options
  • Improved API performance and optimized network traffic with easier API customization
  • Simplified integration with mobile apps by providing JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) support
  • Easier integration with Excel and download of large data sets with standard CSV output
  • Detailed usage and performance reporting dashboards and charts by API

“Xignite has set the standard for ease of use and scalability with market data APIs. Not all APIs are created equally, and the difference between a good API and a bad one can determine how much money you might save, and whether you will deliver your project on time,” said Stephane Dubois, Xignite CEO and founder. “The Xignite team is excited to extend the reach of our market data cloud to our partners on our enhanced platform.”

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
