Web Publishers Can Now Capitalize on Investor Demand for Transparency by Adding Corporate Earnings Conference Call Transcripts to Websites
SAN MATEO, CA May 27, 2009 - Xignite, Inc., the leading cloud services provider of on-demand, financial market data and application components today announced a partnership with Seeking Alpha, the premier financial Web site for actionable stock market opinion and analysis. Under the agreement Xignite has developed XigniteTranscripts, a free Web service to enable Web publishers to easily add up-to-the-minute corporate earnings conference call transcripts on their Web sites. With the new service, web publishers can satisfy investor demand for comprehensive access to publically available financial information and drive traffic to their sites. The economic crisis has provoked a demand for greater transparency in the financial sector. In response, blogs and Web 2.0 applications have made financial information more widely available than ever before. Yet, corporate earnings calls are typically restricted to only a small group of industry analysts and institutional investors. Seeking Alpha is filling this void by providing more than 1,500 public companies' quarterly earnings call transcripts for free on its Web site, along with added functionality for simple use. Now, using XigniteTranscripts, any Web publisher or blogger can automatically display earnings call transcript information on their Web site at no cost and link to the report at Seeking Alpha using only a few lines of code. "Our aim is to make essential financial content such as transcripts available to everyone," said David Jackson, CEO of Seeking Alpha. "Earnings call transcripts are a valuable source of information for those involved in investing or business intelligence activities. We value our partnership with Xignite as its web services help broaden access to this important information source." "Demand for seamless access to information is part of the changing tide in the financial industry," said Stephane Dubois, CEO, Xignite. "Ten years ago, earnings call information was restricted to a few exclusive insiders. Now, any consumer, blogger or student can obtain the same information for free, and easily share them via their Web site, using XigniteTranscripts. Seeking Alpha is trusted throughout the financial services industry, and we're proud to partner with them to improve the availability of financial information."

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.”
