CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., May 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ChartIQ, the leader in HTML5 for capital markets, has announced the launch of its latest product – Finsemble. The first HTML5 desktop application framework, providing modern user experience (UX) APIs, drop-in components, and the ability to integrate legacy .NET, and Java alongside HTML5. Clients can use Finsemble to deliver proprietary content and data, along with content from ChartIQ and other third-party providers.

Multi-window desktop applications are inherently more complex than web or mobile apps, requiring a brand new set of tools previously unavailable to HTML5 developers. Built on top of OpenFin’s common operating layer for financial desktops, Finsemble provides the tools for financial institutions and technology providers to quickly assemble new and existing components into bespoke desktop applications.

Finsemble provides core desktop functionality such as window and workspace management, snapping and docking, component linking, event routing, storage, authentication, and data feed management. A range of pre-built components including charting, blotters, chat, news, and market data widgets are available from ChartIQ and an ecosystem of third-party providers.

“HTML5 is now the standard for building business applications, but so far it has been constrained by the browser. Finsemble is a powerful new toolkit for building advanced HTML5 financial desktop applications, from trading platforms to wealth management workstations” said Dan Schleifer, CEO of ChartIQ. He added, “Finsemble lets developers break outside the <div>, and build powerful multi-window desktop applications in HTML5 while still supporting a firm’s legacy .NET and Java investment.”

“Finsemble makes it incredibly easy to build complex, multi-window applications on OpenFin,” commented Mazy Dar, CEO of OpenFin. “This new framework from ChartIQ will accelerate time-to-market and improve end-user experience for financial industry applications.”

Having concluded an exclusive beta period, Finsemble is now available. Learn more by visiting or emailing questions at [email protected]
