Increased Market Data Sales and Private Label Agreements with NASDAQ and CME Group Pave the Way for Further Expansion
San Mateo, CA - February 15 2011 - Xignite Inc, the leading provider of on-demand financial market data and market data cloud solutions, today announced that it achieved record growth in 2010. The company closed the year with its highest annual revenue on record, adding more than 300 new clients. Xignite also solidified private label distribution agreements with the world’s two largest exchanges, NASDAQ and CME Group, with the launch of NASDAQ Data-on-Demand in the fourth quarter of 2010 and the launch of a CME on-demand product scheduled for the first half of 2011. Xignite now supplies financial market data to more than 900 global clients spanning a broad array of financial applications, including investment management, portfolio accounting, compliance, financial news and community websites. "In 2010, Xignite not only captured a substantially higher number of customers with core financial applications, but also realized strong demand from the expanding app market, including iPad apps, mobile apps, social apps, and beyond,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite, “Cloud-based delivery of financial market data is creating a whole new economic model around the distribution of financial information". Xignite also experienced increasing demand for its private label market data cloud platform, XigniteOnDemand. The only cloud platform for on-demand market data delivery, XigniteOnDemand is the commercially available market data cloud solution that provides the scalability, elasticity, ease-of-use, entitlements, reporting, and monetization capabilities required to make large, complex financial market data sets available for easy consumption over the Internet in a rapid deployment private label solution for exchanges, trading venues and other market data sources. In the fourth quarter of 2010, Xignite and NASDAQ successfully launched NASDAQ Data-On-Demand, which makes the massive NASDAQ historical tick database available on-demand for investment strategy and algorithmic trading backtesting. Unlike traditional means of delivering historical stock tick data, such as feeds and files, NASDAQ Data-On-Demand gives customers the opportunity to hand-pick very specific data sets. In early 2011, Xignite will be launching the previously announced XigniteOnDemand product for CME Group, offering on-demand access to end-of-day OTC settlement, volume and open interest data from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange ClearPort® OTC clearing service. Data sets will include credit default swaps (CDS), energy, metals, agriculture commodities and foreign currencies with plans to add other data sets in the future. Prior to CME and NASDAQ, Xignite launched on-demand products for BGCantor, a leading provider of Government Bond Data and Copp Clark's Good Business Day, a leading supplier of global exchange holidays and trading hours. On-demand financial market data has achieved mainstream acceptance within traditional financial and non-traditional segments. In the third quarter of 2010, Xignite signed a deal with Microsoft® to provide data to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace DataMarket. Integrated with Microsoft Office 2010®, Microsoft Visual Studio® and SQL Server®, users are now able to pull Xignite's on-demand data directly into Excel 2010® and other applications via the DataMarket, opening up financial market data to the 500 million Microsoft Office® users worldwide. Currently, data sets made available through the DataMarket include Xignite's popular global forex web services, with plans to add other data sets in 2011. The rapid adoption of on-demand financial market data in 2010, and Xignite’s position as a leader in this space, lay the groundwork for growth and expansion moving into 2011 and beyond. To accommodate these opportunities, Xignite recently completed the move to a new corporate headquarters. Now located in one of Silicon Valley's premier professional campus, Xignite's newest location is larger and more technologically capable, increasing capacity for their continued growth and new customer additions. As of January 1st, 2011, all inquiries may be sent to the new location: Xignite Inc. 1825 South Grant Street #100, San Mateo, CA 94402.

Web services data provider Xignite captured the AFTAs judges’ attention on the infrastructure front with its release of Xignite Enterprise Microservices in July 2020, a suite of cloud-based microservices for data management, storage and distribution in the cloud, designed to help financial firms migrate from monolithic legacy data architectures to more agile and less expensive cloud services and data sources.

Xignite, Inc., a provider of market data distribution and management solutions for financial services and technology companies, today revealed the results of its collaboration with StockCharts, a leading technical analysis and financial charting platform for online retail investors. The collaboration involved a move from an on-premise market data provider to Xignite’s cloud-native technology hosted in Amazon Web Services (AWS). Download the case study containing the full results.

StockCharts requires vast quantities of financial data to power its visualization, charting and tracking tools, which investors use to analyze the markets to help with investment decisions. The company was frustrated by the limits of its on-premise market data center, which was forcing the team to make architectural decisions based on what its data center could handle in terms of speed and storage, not on their technology. Its previous market data provider was just starting to build out some cloud offerings, but they were far away from what the business required. StockCharts decided to migrate its infrastructure to the AWS cloud and partner with Xignite to gain access to endlessly scalable market and financial data delivered through innovative cloud APIs.

The collaboration made an immediate impact as StockCharts was able to expand its offerings and customer base by pursuing growth strategies enabled by Xignite’s cloud-based approach, which provides easy access to data and eliminates architectural limits on storage and speed.

The pandemic provided further validation. Seattle-based StockCharts was in one of the first areas hit by COVID-19 and was forced to quickly shut down its office. Pandemic-driven market volatility followed and StockCharts customers wanted to visualize what was happening. The company’s ability to scale quickly and accommodate a high volume of new requests would not have been possible without Xignite.

“The move to the AWS cloud and Xignite has unlocked tremendous new potential for us in a lot of architectural ways, and has given us a lot of data options that we could not even consider before,” said Grayson Roze, Vice President of Operations at StockCharts. “It relieved us of the burden of figuring out how to source things. Instead, we know exactly where we need to go to get the data and can access it instantly. That is a huge, huge benefit for our business.”

“We are proud to have played a role in transforming how StockCharts approaches data,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO and Founder of Xignite. “The events of this year unleashed a massive spike in retail trading and a host of other unexpected forces that reinforced the need for financial services firms to leverage the cloud. Despite the disruption of this year, StockCharts was positioned for success, and we look forward to continuing to deliver our financial and market data solutions to the industry at large.”

Xignite

Xignite has been disrupting the financial and market data industry from its Silicon Valley headquarters since 2006 when it introduced the first commercial REST API. Since then, Xignite has been continually refining its technology to help fintech and financial institutions get the most value from their data. Today, more than 700 clients access over 500 cloud-native APIs and leverage a suite of specialized microservices-delivered modules to build efficient and cost-effective enterprise data management solutions.
