Yesterday at the 2013 AWS re:Invent Conference, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced Amazon Kinesis, a fully managed service designed to handle real-time streaming and high-volume data processing at any scale. The announcement comes on the heels of the launch of CloudTrail, a new web service that records API calls made to AWS accounts and then provides log files via Amazon's S3 bucket.
DarkmindFX introduced an API that streamlines access to company financial data. DarkmindFX started with SEC-regulated companies, specifically the S&P 500. Users can easily access balance sheet and other data from companies' SEC filings. The S&P 500 is the starting point with expansion planned.
