ZipChat E15: Data Visualization & Analytics in FinTech

11 AM PT | 1 PM CT | 2 PM ET
September 28, 2021

For those in the financial sector, timely and effective decision-making can mean the difference between success or failure. Yet, making data-driven decisions has never been more complex, given the massive quantities of data generated by FinTech solutions and other enterprise systems.

Automated analytics and machine learning derive insights from large volumes of data that, if not filtered or packaged in a meaningful way, can still overwhelm the user. Through data visualization, data analysis can be easily transformed into more tangible, actionable intelligence. Data visualization delivers powerful insights instantaneously in user-friendly formats that make it easy to digest large datasets and identify patterns or anomalies that drive decisions.

Join us for this episode of ZipChat, where we’ll be talking to Aladin Abughazaleh of Financial Foresight Technologies and David Krein of MarketAxess about:

  • Importance of data visualization in FinTech solutions and its impact in everyday decision-making
  • Appropriate tools and technologies for a range of analytics capabilities
  • Optimizing the user experience with meaningful, actionable visualizations

So join us from your peloton or grab some popcorn on the couch for this interactive ZipChat session. Submit your questions during registration for our experts to address. It’s an open mic, so come with your questions for our subject matter experts!
