WaveMaker Visual AJAX Studio Enables Rapid Application Development for Xignite Web Services

WaveMaker and Xignite Partner to Provide Financial Services Mashups

WaveMaker announced a strategic partnership with on-demand financial Web services provider Xignite. Together, Xignite and WaveMaker will simplify the process by which financial services organizations integrate key financial information into the processes and applications their employees and clients use every day. By combining Xignite’s Web services and WaveMaker’s Visual AJAX Studio development environment, customers can easily create and deploy a mashup to an existing Web page or dashboard in a matter of minutes.

Xignite Web services allow companies in need of financial information the ability to display or use financial market data in an application, such as last sale prices, charts, news, SEC filings, currency exchange rates or commodity prices. WaveMaker’s drag-and-drop Web application toolkit enables users to create database-driven AJAX Web applications without having to write complex code. Together, WaveMaker provides developers the ability to create nearly code-less mashups and integrate them into existing business applications.

“Together, Xignite and WaveMaker are showcasing the power of Web 2.0 for financial services,” said Chris Keene, CEO of WaveMaker. “With the WaveMaker/Xignite ticker widget, any developer can add real-time financial data to their web site in less than five minutes – a task that would have taken weeks to accomplish before this partnership.”

The agreement begins a partnership that will allow WaveMaker to create mashups of Xignite’s more than 55 financial web services. Under the partnership, the companies will collaborate on product development as well as conduct joint sales and marketing activities in the future.

“Firms are increasingly looking for easier ways to build applications. They no longer have the time to spend weeks or months building functionality that needs to change quickly based on business and market constraints. The WaveMaker Visual AJAX Studio is a great tool developers can use to build robust applications and integrate financial data in minutes,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite. “Our partnership with WaveMaker will provide our clients with a professional yet affordable way to deliver data internally or publicly.”
