Xignite uses an on-demand model to serve clients like ING, Goodyear, and McDonald’s and provide market quotes, news, corporate data, industry information, analytics, tools and more. Until recently, much of the data that Xignite collects and organizes was otherwise scattered, raw or only available in bulk form. With their services, Xignite is leading the way for service-oriented business applications.
I had the opportunity to meet with Stephane Dubois, the CEO and Founder of Xignite, and discuss Xignite’s goals, special features and Splice, their new platform for creating web services mashups. (And, I don’t need to remind you how excited I get about mashups). Using the Splice visual designer, developers can create a mashup in just 60 seconds by dragging and dropping objects without ever having to write code.
A special thanks to Sony for letting me use their amazing TG1 HD camcorder, without which none of the Web 2.0 Expo videos would have been possible. You can watch the video via the embed below or download the MP4 directly.
