This week, we announced the public availability of the IBM Cloud for Financial Services.
What is it?
- IBM Cloud for Financial Services is an API and data exchange that brings together FinTech and financial services institutions to rapidly build the finance apps of the future.
- Developers can share innovative applications, APIs, data and content on a secure, cloud platform designed for banks, financial market institutions, and insurance companies.
- Developers can build with our finance APIs, partner APIs, and IBMâ€™s leading technologies like blockchain, cognitive analytics, and big data.
What do developers have access to now?
- A financial services focused section of IBM Bluemix – console.ng.bluemix.net/finance
- 5 new IBM Algorithmics APIs. Algorithimics is a market leader in investment risk management, and these new APIs give developers access to high value risk capabilities such as stress testing portfolios and historical pricing. Learn more.
- Partner APIs and data services from FirstData (payments), Plaid (ACH payments), Riskspan (security data), Accern (sentiment analysis), and Xignite (security data) with more to come.
- Two â€śstarter kitsâ€ť that show scenarios of how the APIs can be used to solve a need with sample code and demo videos. These kits help developers learn the APIs quickly and inspire additional use cases.
- Clients and fintechs can visit our engagement centers in London, Singapore, NY, and San Francisco to participate in workshops, classes, and briefings.
- Clients who have an application concept in mind can work with the teams to develop an MVP and prototype of their app.
- Fintech can develop starter kits that showcase their APIs and services.
