Caplin Enhances Trading and Data Support for Android and iOS devices

Caplin Systems Ltd, the web trading technology company, today announced the immediate availability of Caplin StreamLink Android and an updated version of Caplin StreamLink iOS – allowing customers to build mobile trading apps whatever the native platform.

With the burgeoning growth in use of smartphones and tablets, banks and other financial firms are looking to provide price discovery and trading on a variety of mobile devices. Caplin’s technology enables them to do this with their existing infrastructure rather than having to build completely new systems.

Caplin StreamLink Android allows developers to build mobile trading apps that take full advantage of real-time connectivity with Caplin Liberator, Caplin’s high-performance financial internet hub. By providing native support for Android, Caplin StreamLink now offers a simplified development path, faster application launch and improved performance for trading apps on Android devices.

Caplin has also released an updated version of Caplin StreamLink iOS which has been rebuilt with the latest iOS SDK to fully support Apple iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. This release provides improved functionality and performance with native iOS apps.

Both the Android and iOS 6 versions of Caplin StreamLink support seamless switching between cellular and wireless connections, implement resilience, failover and load-balancing to ensure connections are maintained, and manage connection bandwidth.

Paul Caplin, founder and CEO, says, “Several of our customers have chosen to build native mobile apps. They are already using this software, neatly tapping into Caplin’s web streaming infrastructure to distribute data in real-time to a variety of mobile devices.”

Caplin Liberator is able to deliver real-time pricing and trade messages to a wide variety of devices, including those running applications written in HTML5 as well as iOS, .NET, Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flex, Java, C, C++ and Microsoft Excel. Caplin StreamLink Android is supported on devices running the Gingerbread platform (Android 2.3) or later, including Android Honeycomb (3.0), Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and Jelly Bean (both 4.1.2 and 4.2.1).

Caplin Liberator is part of the Caplin Platform, a high-performance service-orientated real-time web trading framework designed to allow banks to build their own sophisticated, multi-device web trading apps more reliably and quickly than ever before.

Documentation for all versions of Caplin StreamLink is available to Caplin’s customers through their documentation support site.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
