RESTful Approaches To Financial Systems Integration



RESTful architectures are the subject of this presentation, specifically the way they are particularly attractive in solving many financial services integration problems. Kirk will present the advantages of a RESTful architecture to develop integrated systems in the financial services arena, in particular leveraging infrastructure, skills, and systems already in place at these firms.
