Icap Taps OpenFin for Desktop Version of Fusion Data, Trading Portal

Icap is using OpenFin's technology to create a desktop version of its Fusion portal that also allows it to interoperate with other applications and data sources.


Icap built its Fusion platform using the Adobe Flex open-source framework, which allows the broker to deliver Fusion via a web browser. However, the new Fusion Desktop platform runs on HTML5, which allows Icap to provide the platform as a thin-client application on the desktop, as opposed to a thick-client desktop application. Users of Fusion Desktop will have access to the same real-time market data, analytics, news and market commentary as is available in the browser-based version of Fusion.
