Did you get a chance to attend FinDEVr NY 2016? The event was so popular in San Francisco that its organizers decided to host another one on the east coast. This was FinDEVr’s first New York event which focused on the future of financial, banking and payments technology, highlighting dozens of cutting-edge tools, platforms and APIs that are driving the biggest innovations in FinTech. Xignite had the pleasure of presenting at this inaugural NYC event and we have the video of our session for you to enjoy.
Anand Vinaswanathan presented CloudSreaming and CloudAlerts at the conference. Anand spearheads developer efforts at Xignite and is the creator of Xignite Labs. He demonstrated the CloudStreaming API and showed developers how they can add real-time streaming of global quotes for stock, indices, and options, precious metals prices and foreign currency exchange rates into any robo-advisor, trading, or wealth management app or platform in just minutes.
Impatient millennials expect instant updates. This means that next gen fintech apps must provide more real-time capabilities to keep them engaged, and doing this today requires significant coding and processing power. That’s where Xignite CloudStreaming can help. Anand also explained how to use CloudAlerts to trigger alerts, and notify users by SMS, email or by popping up an alert on their screen.
