TheBeastApps_FinDEVr2015_logoThe Beast Apps offers an application distribution as a service (ADaaS) as a utility in a pay-as-you-go business model where vendors can build-test-deploy their commercial apps in the cloud within hours and days, as opposed to weeks and months. The Beast Apps ADaaS has attracted some really big financial institutions, such as exchanges; inter-dealer brokers (IDBs); electronic communication networks (ECNs); analytics vendors; market data vendors, etc., to leverage the platform and build their Eco System/App Store, significantly reducing time to market and costs, gaining unprecedented business intelligence, significantly enhancing revenue potential, and helping vendors and customers as well, bringing value to the entire ecosystem.

Why it’s a must-see
Software teams spend 20% of their time building their ‘secret sauce’ and 80% in distributing that secret sauce. In the financial industry, a real-time, interactive, secure and permissioned distribution of apps is a major challenge. The Beast’s Application Distribution as a Service (ADaaS) reduces the distribution challenges significantly.
